Varicose Veins Before and After

Photos showing legs before varicose vein treatment, and the result patients have achieved after the treatment of their varicose veins.

The varicose veins of all patients were treated either with Endovenous Laser Treatment for varicose veins, EVLT, or Venifit radiofrequency vein ablation, known also as VNUS Closure Procedure.

In some cases, patients have also received one or two sclerotherapy injection treatments for their spider veins.

All treatment procedures were performed by Dr. Raffi Dishakjian, the vein specialist of Nu Vela Laser and Vein Center.

BEFORE AND AFTER VARICOSE VEIN ABLATION WITH EVLT

This is a 51 year old African American woman from Panorama City, California, Los Angeles County, who presented with visibly bulging varicose veins. These veins first appeared with her pregnancy more than a decade ago and enlarged progressively, making her very self conscious as well as causing symptoms of chronic heaviness and aching in her right leg. She underwent Laser ablation (EVLT) of her Great Saphenous Vein, which was the root cause of her chronic venous reflux. The after pictures were taken 7 months following the EVLT procedure, demonstrating the dramatic shrinkage of the surface varicose veins. These surface branch veins were not treated directly but responded to eliminating the underlying venous reflux of the saphenous vein.

DRAMATIC IMPROVEMENT OF VENOUS DERMATITIS AND VARICOSE VEINS AFTER EVLT

This is an 84 year old Caucasian man who was referred to us by his daughter. He has had very long standing chronic venous congestion of his legs with many of the late manifestations of the untreated venous hypertension, including swelling, chronic skin changes like venous dermatitis (inflammation), brownish red pigmentation and lipodermatosclerosis (loss of fat and thickening of the skin). In addition, he had extensive spider and blue veins and non-healing bleeding varicosities in his left ankle. Fortunately he had not developed venous ulceration yet. The after pictures were taken only after 4 weeks following the laser ablation (EVLT) of the Lesser Saphenous vein of the left leg. Without further treatment, a dramatic improvement is noted in the swelling of the leg, bulginess of the varicosities, inflammation of the leg as well as spontaneous healing of the bleeding at the ankle. However, most of the skin pigmentation may not be reversible unfortunately.

EVLT VARICOSE VEIN REMOVAL BY DR. DISHAKJIAN

This is a 33 year old Caucasian woman, of Russian origin, from Reseda, California, who presented with bulging varicose veins in the back of the right knee. Duplex venous ultrasound revealed a large incompetent perforator vein (a short communicating vein), that fed these bulging surface veins from the deep vein system of the leg. As the after pictures show, 6 weeks following shutting down this incompetent perforator vein with the laser ablation (EVLT) procedure, the varicose veins have shrunk remarkably and spontaneously without direct treatment. Additional sclerotherpy injections for these surface veins would have resulted in a more perfect cosmetic outcome.

THIGH VARICOSE VEINS EVLT ONLY

This is a 33 year old Latino male from Canoga Park, California, who presented with symptomatic left leg and ankle varicosities that first appeared at the age of 28. A duplex Venous Ultrasound exam revealed significant venous reflux (backflow) of the saphenous vein at the groin and thigh level, feeding these varicose branches. The after pictures show remarkable improvement in bulginess of the veins and swelling of the leg 8 weeks following Laser ablation of the Saphenous vein (EVLT) only, at the thigh level. The surface varicose veins were not treated directly.

SIX WEEKS AFTER EVLT FOR VARICOSE VEINS

This is a 56 year old Caucasian woman from Chatsworth, California, who presented with venous reflux or incompetence of her saphenous vein of the right leg. Although the venous incompetence in this patient originated at the groin level, the observed varicosities were worse at the lower leg level because of gravitational pooling in these veins. The after pictures represent the spontaneous improvement in the bulginess of these veins only six weeks following laser ablation (EVLT) of the saphenous vein up in the groin area. Additional direct treatment of the surface veins with microphlebectomy and/or sclerotherapy would give this patient more complete clearance.

Individual results may vary.
