Vein Removal Procedures

Vein removal is typically done through laser treatment that targets the specific vein and stops the blood flow to them. Once this is done, the veins will absorb into the body and disappear.

Another type of treatment method is vein removal surgery and this procedure is typically not used unless a patient has severe varicose veins present on their legs. For vein surgery to be completed, the veins will need to be removed by making small incisions and then removing the actual vein. The procedure is done under a local anesthetic to ensure pain is minimized and not felt. You do not have to receive stitches after the procedure, which makes it convenient and minimizes the risk of scarring.

Once the procedure is over, patients will be required to wear what is called a compression bandage for 7 days. This will help ensure that the area heals properly and that the veins stay gone and the area does not experience a bunch of swelling. Some side effects are expected with the procedure and include bruising, mild swelling, pain at the site, and bleeding. These side effects should be gone within 24 hours.
