Dornier MedTech is a leading medical technologies company that is recognized for developing innovative solutions for medical communities around the world. Vanguard Vascular & Vein proudly offers Dornier Laser Vein Removal to our patients. Approximately 70% of women and 30% of men develop venous disorders during their lifetimes. Two indications of venous disorders are spider veins and varicose veins. These veins are visible from the surface of your skin and not only present a cosmetic concern but may also cause you significant discomfort.
The Traditional Treatment for Spider and Varicose Veins
Vein stripping is a traditional technique used for treating spider and varicose veins. Due to the discomfort associated with the procedure, general anesthesia and, in some cases, spinal anesthesia is administered to help you remain comfortable. Several incisions are made in the area of the damaged vein, and a special wire is fed through the incision. The physician ties the wire to the damaged vein and pulls the vein from the body through another incision. While effective, vein stripping results in significant downtime and an extensive recovery period.
Treating Spider and Varicose Veins with Dornier Laser Vein Removal
Medical applications that use laser technology have opened a new world of treatment to patients. Laser procedures, such as Dornier Laser Vein Removal, cause less discomfort with minimal downtime. Patients who undergo Dornier Laser Vein Removal are able to return to their normal activities within one to two days.
Dornier Laser Vein Removal works by inserting a small laser fiber through an incision into the damaged vein. Laser energy is applied to the vein, causing it to seal shut. Once the vein is closed, your body naturally re-routes your blood to healthier veins.
