Is varicose vein treatment painful?

Posted on April 6, 2016 · Posted in Blog

The procedures performed for the treatment of varicose veins are now performed at a clinical setting. This means that the patient is not admitted to a hospital, as was the case earlier. Also, the veins are not stripped anymore, but they are treated using laser procedures, which is a minimally invasive method. Most importantly, it is performed under local anesthesia, which means that it is completely painless. The procedures are incredibly fast (only 15 minutes), effective, with immediate results and no downtime. The patient can return to daily activities immediately after the treatment.

Vein issues can lead to major complications, and since treatment is safe, fast, and painless, one should not delay getting a treatment.
