Laser vein treatment is a procedure that uses laser technology to treat conditions or problems related to veins, whether for medical or cosmetic purposes, or both. Veins play an important role in the body; as the heart pumps blood through the arteries, blood returns to the heart through the veins. Sometimes, however, the veins swell, leading to the development of varicose veins, which are most commonly found in the thighs or calves.
Laser vein treatment, which is usually performed by cosmetic physicians who specialize in laser treatment, is recommended for people suffering from varicose veins, which cause pain, can become bothersome or unsightly, especially if they are bulging. Laser treatment relieves pain and inflammation, as well as soothes irritated skin over the swollen veins.
