Leg vein treatment with fotona in Australia

What is chronic venous insufficiency?

Leg vein treatment with fotona: Chronic venous insufficiency is a common disorder that affects the arteries of the foot.

Chronic venous insufficiency is a disease that develops over several years due to poor venous valve function.

Early signs of the disease include swelling of the ankles and legs.

If left untreated, the capillaries around the affected vein may rupture, causing the skin to turn reddish-brown.

In addition, unhealed wounds called stasis form.

Chronic venous insufficiency occurs when the leg veins are unable to return blood to the heart.

What is chronic venous insufficiency?

 (The arteries carry blood from the heart to the organs, while the veins carry blood from different parts of the body to the heart).

Valve problems in the veins cause blood to flow in both directions instead of being directed to the heart.

If these valves do not work properly, they can cause blood to accumulate in the legs.

Chronic venous insufficiency can cause pain, swelling, and varicose ulcers if left untreated.

Chronic venous insufficiency is not a dangerous health threat but can cause pain and disability.

Reasons

Chronic venous insufficiency is more common in obese people, pregnant women, or people with a family history of the disease.

People who have had a foot injury, have had surgery, or have a history of blood clots are more likely to get the disease.

Some of the causes of chronic venous insufficiency are:

  • Prolonged hypertension in the veins of the legs due to prolonged sitting or standing
  • Inactivity and not exercising
  • smoking
  • Hormonal factors (menopause)
  • Deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in a deep vein, usually in the leg or thigh)
  • Phlebitis (swelling and inflammation of the superficial veins, usually in the legs)

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)

DVT is a medical condition that occurs when a blood clot forms in a deep vein.

These clots usually develop in the lower leg, thigh, or pelvis, but they can also occur in the arm.

Phlebitis

Phlebitis means “inflammation of a vein”.

The vein becomes inflamed because there’s blood clotting inside it or the vein walls are damaged.

Superficial thrombophlebitis is the term for an inflamed vein near the surface of the skin,

(usually a varicose vein) caused by a blood clot.

Signs

Some of the symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency include:

  • Intravenous dilation
  • Swelling in the legs and ankles
  • Cramps in the legs or painful itching of the legs
  • Pain during walking that resolves with rest.
  • Brown skin, especially near the ankles
  • Varicose disease
  • Varicose vein ulcers, which are sometimes very resistant to treatment.

Removal of excess capillaries and with fotona laser

There are several methods to treat these capillaries, one of which is the use of laser beam,

which has a very good and fast effect on excess capillaries.

The Nd: YAG laser of the fotona device can be pumped directly into the bloodstream by hemoglobin.

And by its sudden rise in temperature, it burns the capillaries and blocks the blood supply,

which in turn destroys the excess capillaries.

This method will not damage the surface of the skin because the laser light is absorbed only by the hemoglobin cells,

and the other cells absorb the laser light.
