Varicose veins or Spider veins often look swollen, enlarged, blue/dark purple veins. And they tend to occur when some faulty valves cause the vein to pool blood or cause the blood to flow in the wrong direction.
These veins often appear on legs and feet when there's a malfunction in the veins which affects the blood flow.
For most people varicose veins are simply a cosmetic concern because of the lumpy vein look on the skin. However, for some these may cause pain and discomfort which may lead to serious problems.

There are two major reasons when people choose to see a doctor when it comes to varicose veins. One is a purely cosmetic reason because of the lumpy look on the skin and the other is when they feel discomfort & pain.
However, when the discomfort becomes severe, it is absolutely necessary to see a doctor to heal before it's too late.
Scientifically known as ‘Endovenous laser treatment’ helps eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. It involves inserting a laser fibre into a leg vein called the saphenous vein, where the laser causes the affected veins to collapse and close shut. Later, the body redirects the blood that used to flow through those veins to other veins.
A doctor could advocate endovenous laser treatment for varicose veins to eliminate varicose or spider veins that are bigger, protruding, unsightly, or inflicting burning, soreness, rashes or cramping. When the valves within veins that facilitate direct blood back to your heart are impaired or enervated, blood pools in your veins leading to varicose veins. Thus, the doctor may only consider endovenous laser treatment for you if alternative treatment choices with less risk of complications are ineffective.
So, ask your doctor about the best treatment for varicose veins before deciding on endovenous laser treatment.
The best treatment for varicose veins is given by the House of Doctors with no downtime needed. The first step in the process is to map your veins using a Doppler ultrasound device. By knowing exactly where to apply the laser energy, we ensure that your treatment is quick and effective. After mapping your veins, we apply a local anaesthetic to numb the area and insert a thin laser fibre into your vein to deliver a pulse of energy and cut off the vein’s blood supply. You may feel minor stinging or tingling when this happens. Once the fibre is removed, we place a small bandage on the skin where it was inserted and no stitches are needed.
Nevertheless, if you have a large number of varicose veins that need treatment, you may require multiple appointments. The sessions are usually under an hour long and have a 98% success rate bestowing immediate relief of symptoms. Once a varicose vein has been closed aloof from the blood supply, it is indelibly treated. However, the same risk factors that were present before your procedure will still be present. Hence paying attention to the conditioning is important.
