What Are the Risks of Laser Treatment for Varicose Veins
- Skin burns
- Changes to skin coloring in the treated areas
- Sensations like burning, pain, or prickling after recovery, which may be the results of nerve damage caused by the laser treatment
- Small or large blood clotting in the vein or a deep vein
One of the factors limiting these risks is how experienced your doctor is with laser vein treatments. A doctor with excellent skills and years of experience may lessen your odds of experiencing skin burns, discoloration, pain, clotting and other side effects from laser vein procedures. Talk to your doctor not just about which kind of treatment may be right for you, but also about how much experience he has with the newest laser vein treatment procedures, and how often his patients report negative side effects after treatment. A great doctor using the top technology in laser vein treatments will likely have fewer patients experiencing troublesome side effects after their procedures, and you always want to be in the best and most experienced hands whenever you’re getting your veins treated – whether with lasers or with surgery.
