And, we strongly believe in patient agency, so you will have full control over your health care at all times.
Why Receive Laser Vein Treatment?
In the United States, vein disorders affect more than 60 percent of the population. While the causes of vein disease are unknown, the symptoms are certainly felt. They commonly include leg pain or discomfort, leg swelling, leg cramps, restless feeling in the leg, itching or burning sensations in the leg, and/or leg throbbing. Left untreated, vein disorders caused by failed vein valves can result in:
- Varicose/spider veins
- Skin ulcers
- Venous eczema
- Blood clots
What to Expect from Laser Vein Treatment
Here at Gateway Radiology, we’re proud to be one of only two radiology centers in the area that provides CoolTouch® Endovenous Laser Ablation as a treatment option for varicose veins, venous insufficiency, and other vein disorders. This form of laser vein treatment uses a smooth 1320 nanometer wavelength laser, allowing our physician to focus on the vein and not the surrounding tissue. You will also feel little to no pain, as compared to other laser vein treatments that can rupture the veins and cause significant swelling, bruising, and pain. CoolTouch® Endovenous Laser Ablation provides almost immediate results, so your symptoms should begin to reduce quickly. Best of all, the procedure is minimally invasive and requires no general anesthesia, so you can be up and walking right away. You’ll leave our center wearing only a bandage and will be able to resume light activity by the very next day.
The VenaSealTM Closure System – An Alternative to Laser Vein Treatment
We’re also proud to offer the VenaSeal™ closure system as an alternative to laser vein treatment. Particularly effective for those with venous reflux disease, VenaSeal permanently closes lower extremity veins without the need for heat or surgery, and symptom relief is often immediate. And, like our CoolTouch® laser vein treatment, patients are walking and resuming normal activities soon after the procedure.
