Fifteen to twenty-five percent of UAE adults suffer from varicose or spider veins; the prevalence is higher among women than among men.
Swollen, enlarged veins that protrude through the skin and can look lumpy or twisted are what we mean when we talk about varicose veins. Most cases occur in the legs. Spider veins resemble webs and are smaller than varicose veins.
Varicose veins are enlarged veins that develop when the vein’s internal valves, which normally prevent blood from flowing backwards into the vein, become damaged and fail to adequately prevent blood from pooling in the vein. This condition can affect any vein in the body. Dr. Trelles, a plastic and laser surgeon at the cutting-edge Vilafortuny clinic for dentistry, plastic and aesthetic laser surgery, says the damage can arise from pregnancy, aging, heredity, or long periods of sitting or standing at work.
Due to the high success rate of laser treatment for vascular malformations in the head and neck, many patients in the United Arab Emirates who suffer from varicose and spider veins also choose laser treatment for their lower extremities.
A long-pulsed Neodimio YAG laser, commonly used to treat lower-extremity varicose veins, will be utilized by your surgeon. Intense laser light can easily break through thick layers of skin.
While varicose veins are not medical emergencies, their appearance can be embarrassing.
