One of the most renowned treatments for the varicose veins is known as the “Laser Ablation”. The method is normally used, in case other treatments are not working and also when the swelling and discomfort are too much unbearable.

In the treatment, a tube with a laser on its end is passed through a diseased vein. The laser heats up and seals the walls of the vein so blood is not able to flow through it. This blocked vein is then removed using a stripping device.
