What are Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are caused from veins being enlarged and twisted, causing a malfunction in blood flow, resulting in discolored and more appeared veins. The reason why it becomes discolored and more profound is because when the valves of the vein fail, blood begins to collect in the vein, resulting in it to become enlarged. This is commonly found in the legs, as walking and standing increase the pressure in the veins, resulting in varicose veins, also known as spider veins. Varicose veins can be a cosmetic concern, as well as a health concern as it can lead to more serious problems in the future.

How does it work
The laser treatment is safe and requires little to no downtime. During the procedure, a highly focused beam of light aka laser is targeted onto the effected area. The heat from the laser damages the vein, causing scar tissue to form. Due to the scarring, this closes the vein, cutting of blood circulation, resulting in the vein to die without harming the surrounding tissue. After a certain amount of time, the vein disappears, eliminating the varicose vein. The treatment takes around 5-30 minutes depending on the size and severity of the veins. In order to achieve the best results, diminishing al varicose veins, more than one session may be required.
