Laser therapy for venous diseases

You may have heard that varicose veins and other venous diseases tend to get worse in winter. If you have these conditions, you may have experienced it for yourself. There is a truth to this. Because people tend to stay indoors more during winter, the lack of physical activity negatively affects the veins, causing poor circulation and more pain and discomfort.

Cooltouch CTEV for Varicose Veins in Encinitas Area

Veins are also easier to treat in winter. It enables more time to get ready for the leg-bearing season in summer and makes it easier to wear compression stockings, which may feel too hot and stifling in summer.

Board-Certified Dermatologist Dr. Amanda Lloyd of Skin and Vein Institute in Encinitas, CA, uses the CoolTouch CTEV system to treat venous disease more effectively. The 1320 nm wavelength laser requires less heat to close the vein, resulting in a more effective and comfortable procedure. It is minimally invasive and involves little or no post-operative bruising and swelling, and patients can quickly resume their normal routines.
