With a laser treatment, the varicose vein in the upper leg or calf is closed using a laser. Under ultrasound guidance, the varicose vein is punctured at the level of the knee (if we treat the upper leg) or at the bottom of the calf (if we treat the calf). A laser wire is advanced into the vein through this access. The correct position of the laser wire is determined with echo. The vein is anesthetized and then cauterized with the heat of the laser light by slowly pulling back the wire. As a result, the vein wall shrinks and the varicose vein closes.
After the treatment you will be given an elastic compression stocking that you will wear for 36 hours. We already have the stocking ready for you.
Reimbursement for laser treatment
A referral letter for the first consultation, including vascular examination (duplex), is required in connection with the reimbursement thereof. Without a referral letter, these costs are for your own account.
After the vascular examination, it is known whether it concerns a medical or cosmetic treatment. If it concerns a cosmetic treatment, you must pay for the treatment yourself. This also applies to the stockings. If it concerns medical treatment, the costs will be submitted to your insurer.
