Varicose veins are enlarged twisted vessels that become visible mostly on the legs.These generally do not have physical symptoms and only have a visual impact. At times though, Varicose veins can cause pain. These give an appearance of lumpy skin in the affected area.
What causes varicose veins?
The main cause behind this condition is abnormal working of valves in the legs. The valves can stop functioning due to a host of reasons which cause the blood to be collected in the vessels. Eventually these veins cease to perform their functions.
Factors that aid varicose veins
Numerous factors play their part in the appearance of Varicose veins. Generally these are a result of sudden weight gain which puts too much pressure on the legs. Hormonal changes too play a part and fluctuations can lead to this condition. Varicose veins can also be a result of sitting for too long with your legs hanging down.
Hereditary factors are also important and people whose parents have the problem are most likely going to develop it. Age is important as well and older people are more likely to have Varicose veins Treatment. Women are at a greater risk of developing them than men.
A doctor can diagnose after assessing the symptoms and undertaking a visual exams. The typical symptoms of the varicose veins include swollen legs, a feeling of heaviness in the legs, irritated and dry skin and formation of skin ulcers that take time to heal. The ankles may also become thick and hard and the veins become swollen and visible.
When it comes to treatment of Varicose Veins in Dubai, there are two highly effective treatments which are surgery and laser treatment. Laser Treatment is the preferred choice for most people due to its minimally invasive nature.
How to prepare for laser treatment for varicose veins:
•Stop taking any blood thinning medications, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, beta blockers etc. two weeks before varicose veins treatment
•Supplements such as Cord Liver Oil and Vitamin E, should also be discontinued 10-15 days prior to the procedure
•Avoid smoking and drinking for a week before treatment
•Take good 8 hours sleep the night before your procedure
•Wash and shave the treatment before coming for the treatment
Laser treatment for varicose veins
Laser treatment is an effective and safe way to get varicose veins treated. Two types of laser treatments are used for removal of varicose veins.
Simple laser treatment
In simple laser varicose veins treatment, the veins present just below the skin are treated with laser energy being provided to them from the outside of the skin. The recovery period for this type of treatment is very brief and one can return to routine activities soon after the procedure has been performed.
Endovenous laser treatment
Endovenous laser treatment is used to treat larger varicose veins inside the legs. For this purpose, thin tube is passed into the affected vein(s) after making small incisions. The tube has a laser fiber on its tip which provides laser energy to the veins.
The energy once absorbed by the veins helps it in collapsing and the body can easily absorb it. Since the varicose veins are not performing any functions anyway, their collapse has no effect on the functionality of the leg. The treatment is performed after the administration of local anesthesia.
Several types of laser can be used for removal of varicose veins but Nd: Yag laser system is most commonly used for this purpose due to its effectiveness. CANDELA GENTLEMAX LASER is also used for Laser varicose veins removal in Abu Dhabi.

•Do not expose treated areas to direct sunlight for 4 to 6 weeks at least
