The varicose veins are responsible for the appearance of visible veins, very unsightly, which seem to be about to protrude under the skin of the lower limbs. They are due to dilation of the superficial veins of the thighs and legs. The blood return is poor and the blood begins to stagnate in the vessels.

The principle of the Endovenous laser:
The endovenous laser treats unsightly surface varicose veins. It acts on the vein inside the thigh or saphenous varix. Of all the operative techniques, this method is the least traumatic.

The Best Surgeon for Varicose Veins is the vascular surgeon or phlebologist which operates varicose veins under ultrasound control.
How is the intervention done?
The laser fiber is introduced inside the vein, most often at the knee. The infiltration of local anesthetic forms a thickness of water around the vein to protect the surrounding tissues of the laser and to avoid any risk of burns. The specialist activates a laser shot every three millimeters, removing the fiber as it goes outward. If necessary, the varicose branches are removed by phlebectomy using tiny incisions. A compression stocking is placed.
