Laser Vein Ablation Q & A

What is laser vein ablation?

If your veins are a cosmetic concern, painful, sore, red, or swollen, Dr. Morgan might recommend a laser vein treatment. Most visible veins aren’t usually a health problem, but some veins, such as varicose veins, can be painful and interfere with daily life.

Laser vein treatments involve the use of advanced laser technology. Innovative systems utilize precise laser energy to heat and shrink your vein wall, so it heals shut.

Most laser treatments are minimally invasive and entail the application of a local anesthetic and a small opening in your skin to insert the device and deliver the laser energy.

What laser vein treatments are available?

Dr. Morgan provides various laser vein treatments and procedures to address your unwanted vein problem. Most laser procedures take less than an hour to complete.

Laser energy is a highly concentrated beam of light. Medical lasers deliver this light energy to the targeted tissue with optimal precision without affecting the surrounding tissue. Laser procedures close and shrink your vein and cause scar tissue to occur within the vessel.

Lasers are proven successful and used in a number of branches of medicine -- from eye surgery to dermatology. You’re encouraged to walk immediately following your laser vein treatment, and you can return to your daily activities.

Endovenous laser treatment

With endovenous laser treatment, Dr. Morgan applies a local anesthetic and inserts a thin fiber into your damaged vein through a small entry point in your skin. He delivers the laser energy through the fiber as he carefully pulls the fiber back through your vein. Your vein reacts to the laser and seals shut. Your blood automatically routes itself to other healthy veins. 

What are the benefits of laser vein treatments?

Laser vein treatments are a great choice to get rid of your unwanted veins. Laser vein treatments offer many benefits, including little to no downtime.

Laser vein treatments are safe and effective minimally invasive procedures that can resolve your aesthetic and functional concerns. Multiple treatments might be necessary for best results. In many cases, laser vein treatments can boost confidence and enhance the quality of life.
