Varicose Veins Treatment in Cyprus
Varicose veins are a common condition that occurs when the valves in the veins become damaged, causing them to get swollen, twisted and enlarged. While they can occur anywhere on the body, they are most commonly found on the legs.
Many patients only suffer from the cosmetic aspect of varicose veins, but others experience pain and discomfort, itchiness, as well as feelings of heaviness and fatigue. In very severe cases, they can also lead to skin ulcers.
Treatment time: 30 – 60 minutes
Anesthetic: Local anesthesia
Downtime: Little to none
We use a non-surgical laser varicose veins treatment in Cyprus. Laser treatment involves using a high-intensity beam of light to heat and damage the vein. This causes the vein to shrink and eventually disappear. The blood then re-routes itself into other, healthier veins.
Laser treatment is generally safe and effective, and it does not require any downtime. For some patients, the results are immediately visible while other patients might have to wait weeks or months to see the results. The results of varicose veins treatment in Cyprus are permanent. However, new varicose veins can appear.
There are various reasons that cause varicose veins. These include obesity, prolonged standing, hormonal changes, aging, genes, pregnancy, vein diseases and more. In general, varicose veins are usually developed on women.
Yes, there are some things you can do to prevent varicose veins from getting worse. Firstly, you should exercise regularly and try to maintain a healthy weight. Secondly, you should avoid standing up or sitting down for a long time. Even at work, you should stand up and have a little walk if you are seated for a long time. On the other hand, if your job requires that you stand a lot, arrange a mini break so that you can sit down. A low-salt diet can also prevent varicose veins from getting worse. Finally, make sure you give your legs a break by putting them up after a long period of standing or sitting.
People with varicose veins are at risk of developing blood clots because the vein walls fail to provide support to the vessels, and this increases the risk of them breaking open.
