Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged veins. Varicose veins can develop in any superficial (near the skin's surface) vein. Leg veins are the most frequently affected by varicose veins. This is due to the fact that standing and walking put more strain on the lower body's veins.

Varicose veins are frequently only an aesthetic concern for many people. Others may have aching pain and discomfort from varicose veins. Varicose veins can occasionally result in more severe issues.

Symptoms of Varicose Veins:

Varicose vein symptoms include:

  • Bluish-purple or dark purple veins
  • Tangled, bulging veins that frequently resemble cables on the legs

The following are examples of painful varicose vein indications and symptoms:

  • Legs that be heavy or aching
  • Lower leg edema, muscular cramps, burning, and throbbing
  • Pain that worsens after spending a lot of time sitting or standing
  • Itching around a vein or many veins
  • Variations in skin tone near a varicose vein

Varicose veins and spider veins or thread veins are similar, although spider veins are smaller, are closer to the skin's surface, and spider veins are frequently red or blue in color.

Spider veins can be present on the face as well as the legs. They come in different sizes and frequently resemble spider webs.

Causes of Varicose Veins:

Varicose veins can be caused by weak or broken valves. Blood is transported throughout the body through arteries from the heart. Blood is returned to the heart by veins from the rest of the body. Leg veins must defy gravity in order to return blood to the heart.

Elastic vein walls and muscle contractions in the lower legs help blood return to the heart. Veins have tiny valves that open to allow blood to flow toward the heart and seal to prevent it from flowing the other way. Blood can flow backward and pool in the veins if these valves are weak or broken, which can stretch or twist the veins.

Factors that can increase a person’s risk of developing thread veins include:

  • Genetics
  • Pregnancy
  • Being female
  • Being older
  • Being overweight
  • Hormones
  • Sitting or standing for extended periods
  • A previous blood clot or vein damage
  • Excess pressure in the face
  • Sun damage

Complications of Varicose Veins

Even though they are uncommon, untreated varicose vein can result in:

Ulcers- the skin around varicose veins can develop painful ulcers, especially close to the ankles. A skin discoloration usually appears before an ulcer develops. If you believe you have a leg ulcer, consult your doctor right away.

Blood clots- The swelling and soreness in the legs might occasionally be brought on by swollen deep leg veins. Consistent leg discomfort or swelling should be examined by a doctor since these may be symptoms of a blood clot.

Bleeding- Veins that are close to the skin can burst. Even though this typically only results in slight bleeding, medical intervention is still necessary.

Treatment for Varicose Veins

Wearing Compression Stockings- Wearing a properly-fitting support hose is the most conservative course of action, particularly when the veins are the source of unpleasant or uncomfortable symptoms. Most surgical supply stores, as well as certain pharmacies, carry these stockings. They are available in pantyhose, above-the-knee, and below-the-knee designs.

Making Lifestyle Changes- Walking and maintaining good skin hygiene are effective treatments for varicose veins. A low-salt diet helps to lessen bloating and edema.

Sclerotherapy- The vein is directly injected with a highly concentrated saline (salt) solution or a carefully formulated detergent in this operation, which has been around since the 1930s. Over the course of three to six weeks, the vein progressively disappears. The treatment can be carried out in an outpatient setting and is easy and short.

Endovascular Laser Treatment- Varicose veins can now be treated without surgery with EVLA. The varicose veins are burned by a laser rather than being tied and removed. The body then naturally absorbs the dead tissue when the heat kills the vein walls, destroying the varicose veins. Instead of an operating room, it can be performed in a straightforward treatment room.

Occlusion of radiofrequency- A tiny catheter is used during this treatment to give radiofrequency radiation to the vein wall, which causes it to heat up, collapse, and seal shut. The operation can be carried out under local anesthetic and is typically performed in an outpatient setting.

Surgery- Endoscopic vein surgery, ambulatory phlebectomy, which enables the removal of large surface veins through extremely small incisions that do not require stitches, and stripping and ligation are surgical methods used to treat varicose veins. Anesthesia options for surgery include local, spinal, and general. Large varicose veins are usually treated surgically. A tiny camera is used during endoscopic vein surgery to examine within the veins and remove them.

Lasers and intense pulsed light- These devices target and damage or eliminate aberrant veins using heat energy. Although there may be slight discomfort, one benefit of these therapies is that no needles or sclerosing solutions are needed. Blister formation and discolouration or staining are among the possible side effects. Examples include PhotoDerm and Vasculight.

Who is a good candidate for Varicose Vein Laser Treatment?

If your varicose veins are painful, red, and swollen, your doctor might recommend laser surgery. If the skin around your varicose veins becomes inflamed, laser surgery may also be suggested.

The ideal patient for Laser therapy is in good overall health, does not smoke and has realistic expectations from the procedure. Additionally, it can be your best option if you have a needle phobia, an allergy to the chemicals used in sclerotherapy, or your thread veins are too small to be injected.

Preparation for the Surgery

Prepare to answer questions about your:

  • Medical conditions or allergies
  • Current medication review
  • Previous surgeries
  • Treatment goals

How is Endovenous Laser Varicose Vein Surgery done?

Endovenous laser treatment for varicose veins is usually done on an outpatient basis and does not require any hospital stay. The procedure usually takes an hour or little less to complete.

Step 1

The surgeon will numb the place where the tube or catheter will be inserted into your vein. Before and during the surgery, your healthcare provider will check the vein using a Doppler ultrasound machine. This method creates a picture of the vein on a computer screen using sound waves.

Step 2

The surgeon will insert the catheter into your body through a tiny cut or incision into the varicose vein to be treated. The catheter will be filled with a laser fiber. The laser will heat up the length of the vein as the surgeon pulls the catheter out. The vein closes up and ultimately shrinks.

You probably won't need sutures because the cut where the catheter was put was likely tiny enough. In the area, a bandage will be applied.

What Results can I expect from Endovenous Laser Varicose Vein Surgery?

Laser thread vein removal is a non-invasive, safe and trusted treatment that will leave you with a clearer complexion, more rejuvenated skin by minimizing the appearance of visible spider veins and unwanted broken capillaries. Best of all, it is an affordable treatment with virtually minimal downtime.

What is the Recovery after Endovenous Laser Varicose Vein Surgery like?

Following the operation, you will be advised to walk for 30 to 60 minutes. There may be minor bruises on your leg. In about two weeks, the bruises should fade.

After treatment, you can normally resume your normal activities, however we do urge that you avoid exercising in hot environments like the sauna or the gym. In the same way, we suggest that you avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight and wear sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30.

Patient Testimonials

Having been home a few days now I can get my thoughts together and give my heartfelt thanks for the support and encouragement I got from IndiCure. Obviously, there was a certain amount of trepidation going to what has a reputation of being a third world country for a major operation like knee replacement, having received the type of treatment which I would think only the Royal family would receive in this country I wonder which is the third world country. From the organization arranged by your good self to absolutely first-class attention at the hospital and the service of doctors and his wonderful team all of whom spoke English, the nursing was one to one and my well-being was their only concern.

The operation has been a complete success. I am so happy with the results. The friendliness from everyone from consultant to ancillary workers was amazing.

Thank you,

Ms. Beth Brown,United Kingdom

Procedure: Bilateral knee joint replacement

My Knee joint replacement surgery in India has given me a second chance to live life independently and on my own terms. I had become completely dependent and bed ridden because of the extreme pain and found it even difficult to go to the wash room.

IndiCure has really helped me in this journey and I am very thankful to them. The surgeon and nursing staff especially were very nice. Good work done.

Mr. Ansari Sheikh,Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Are spider veins and varicose veins the same thing?

Bulging, occasionally blue-tinged veins beneath the skin's surface are known as varicose veins, and they typically appear on the legs. Spider veins are smaller, red, purple, and blue veins that also twist and turn. They typically appear on the legs or the face and are frequently a flow on effect of varicose veins.

2. Are spider veins worse than varicose veins?

No, a spider vein is a less severe variation of a varicose vein. However, you should get medical attention for both diseases as soon as possible to prevent a spider vein from developing into a real problem.

3. Do spider veins eventually become varicose veins?

While a person can have both varicose veins and spider veins, varicose veins do not always develop from spider veins. Neither do all spider veins turn to varicose veins. If they are very small and not causing any pain or symptoms, the treatment for spider veins is usually considered as cosmetic.

4. How can I prevent getting varicose veins?

You cannot prevent getting varicose veins. The likelihood of developing varicose veins may be decreased by increasing blood flow and muscular tone. The same steps that are used to relieve varicose vein discomfort can also be used to avoid them. Try these things:

  • Avoiding wearing high heels
  • Regularly switch between sitting and standing positions.
  • Following a low-salt, high-fiber diet
  • Exercising
  • Extending your legs when you're lying down or seated
  • Monitoring your weight

5. Are my veins suitable for laser treatment?

Almost all varicose vein patients are good candidates for EVLA. Only foam sclerotherapy is typically used to treat the limited number of patients who are unsuitable (mostly those with minor recurrent veins from prior surgery).

6. Are all lasers the same?

Nearly all of the lasers used for EVLA are the same. Some modern varieties assert to be less painful than traditional lasers. Although the majority of patients only feel little amounts of pain when using ordinary lasers.

7. How long does it take for varicose veins to disappear after laser treatment?

Within a week of treatment, you should start to see a reduction in the prominence of your varicose veins, although complete results may take weeks to months.

8. How well does endovenous laser therapy work?

Endovenous laser treatment for varicose veins is quite promising. The studies show that 98.1% of the treated veins are effectively removed using the endovenous laser therapy.

9. How long does it take to recover from endovenous laser ablation?

You might have a bandage and some bruises where the vein was treated. Compression stockings must be worn for at least one week. You can go about your normal routines, but for approximately a week, stay away from strenuous exertion. Most people are able to immediately resume their regular schedule.

10. How long should I wear compression socks after an EVLT?

It will be recommended that you wear your stockings for two to six weeks.

11. After EVLT, what happens to the vein?

The vein that underwent EVLT treatment is permanently sealed shut, and over time, it is somewhat absorbed by the body. Sometimes the vein remains closed as a "cord" without a lumen on an ultrasound taken months or years later.

12. Is endovenous laser ablation painful?

No, endovenous laser therapy is not painful. It is a simple outpatient procedure done under local anesthesia.

  • The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
