What is Laser Vein Treatment?
Varicose veins are damaged veins that are engorged with blood due to improper circulation to the heart. Most varicose veins do not reflect medical conditions and are only cosmetic in nature. Laser vein treatment is a procedure that destroys the damaged vein.
What is the Cost of Laser Vein Treatment in Fredericksburg, VA?
Our laser vein treatments start at $400, and we can discuss your cost after the consultation with Dr. Palmer. If you decide that laser vein treatment is a good option, payment can be made by cash, personal check, money order, or credit card. We also work with CareCredit®, United Medical Credit and Prosper™ Healthcare Lending to offer financing to our patients, and you can apply before the consultation.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Vein Treatment?
Laser vein treatment is less extensive than traditional methods (such as vein stripping) that cause tissue trauma and scarring, as well as long recovery periods.
Is Laser Vein Treatment Right for Me?
You may be a good candidate for laser vein treatment if you have visible veins that bulge just under the skin. The veins may be purple, red or blue in color, and some patients experience discomfort due to their varicose veins. Dr. Palmer may recommend that you be evaluated by your primary physician to ensure that your varicose veins are not related to an underlying medical condition.
How is Laser Vein Treatment Performed?
Dr. Palmer uses the ALMA Long Pulse YAG 1-64 handpiece for laser vein treatments. The procedure involves the insertion of a laser fiber into the vein. The fiber delivers high-intensity light energy that is absorbed only by the vein walls. No other tissues are affected. The laser energy heats the interior of the vein, causing it to collapse. Your body absorbs the vein and blood is routed through healthy veins.
What is Laser Vein Treatment Recovery Like?
You may have some downtime after your laser vein treatment. Dr. Palmer discusses these details during the consultation.
