Many women are embarrassed about their legs and feel that they cannot wear shorts or skirts, or they may avoid being outside altogether during the summer months. Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins near the surface of the skin and are highly noticeable because of their deep blue and purple colors.
Weight plays a huge role for women with varicose veins. Excessive weight gain during pregnancy or from being overweight can put a large amount of pressure on the veins in the legs. Women who have jobs where they are required to stand for long periods of time also have an increased amount of pressure on the leg veins. This excessive pressure can lead to veins looking swollen and dark under the skin. When the veins do not go away and/or they cause a burning or aching feeling in the legs, they are classified as varicose veins.
Laser vein therapy at Kalos is a successful method of treating unwanted varicose veins. We incorporate our experience, knowledge, and cutting edge technology to achieve safe and lasting results for varicose veins. Heat from the laser damages the vein and cause scar tissue to form. The scar tissue will close the vein so that the vein will die from loss of blood flow. Dr. Benjamin Stong at Kalos uses specific laser treatments along with a contact copper function to provide a cooling comfort and protection of the skin during all laser vein therapy treatments.
