Varicose Veins are a serious condition where one- way valves in the veins stop working correctly, leading to swollen and unsightly veins visible from the skin as well as discomfort and a feeling of “heaviness” in the legs for many patients. In serious situations these swollen, malfunctioning veins can cause blood clots. Affecting both men and women, varicose veins are a medical concern that should be addressed by a medical professional to prevent more serious or life threatening conditions.
At Varicose to Perfect, an IAC Accredited Vein Center in the Dayton, OH area, Dr. Sinnathamby offers board certified treatment for restoring comfort and better looking legs with minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins.
There was a time when the only option to treat varicose veins was a lengthy and painful procedure called vein stripping. The name alone sounds painful and unappealing. Thanks to science and modern technology, new laser treatments are significantly less time consuming, dangerous and painful.
Now the norm in venous reflux disease treatment, EVLT – Endovenous Laser Treatment- is essentially painless, quick, and effective. EVLT can be completed in the comfort of our Springboro medical office in just one short hour, and requires only local anesthetic. Scarring from EVLT is very minimal and the relief from both internal and external vein reflux disease can be felt almost immediately.
The EVLT treatment utilizes ultrasound technology to pinpoint the saphenous vein. Using a laser fiber that gets threaded through a catheter, the laser emits targeted radial energy to the wall of the vein, shrinking the vein and reducing the visibility of swelling.
Recovery care is minimal. Most patients are back on their feet immediately after the procedure with compression socks to be worn to support the healing process. Dr. Sinnathamby suggests you walk at least 10 minutes, three times a day for 2 weeks.
