Varicose veins are twisted and enlarged veins which can appear anywhere in the body. They are benign and commonly appear in the legs and feet.
In most cases there are no symptoms. There might be some pain and irritation at the spot where the veins appear.
Following are the treatments available for varicose veins:
Radio frequency ablation is a medical procedure in which incisions are made in the knee area under the influence local anesthesia. A thin tube is passed through the enlarged veins, whose tips heat up and collapses the veins to their original position. This is done with the help of radio frequency or laser beams.
Laser surgery is one of the medical procedures available for varicose veins. In this procedure a focused laser light beam will be applied on the veins which will make it fade away slowly.
The patient can go home after the surgery and continue his/her day to day chores.
