Austin Vein Specialists is leading the way in cutting-edge vein treatments with the use of the 1470 nm Diode Vein Laser for the treatment of leg veins. This particular vein laser is the latest state-of-the-art technology being utilized for the treatment of varicose veins and a condition known as venous reflux / venous insufficiency which can lead to leg pain, leg swelling, or unsightly veins on the legs.
Dr. Gotvald, board-certified vein specialist at Austin Vein Specialists explains: “Although we have been performing laser treatment on veins many years, this particular laser is the latest and most effective technology for the treatment of leg veins. It is associated with less pain, less bruising, fewer side effects, and less discoloration of the skin compared to older laser technologies. The patient satisfaction level with this particular device is outstanding. Compared to other lasers that we have used in the past, this device is showing significant superiority.”
Dr. Gotvald, who has experience using the laser, reports that his patients have been extremely satisfied with the results. “Not only have my patients reported to me that they are extremely satisfied with the results of the treatment, but they also tell me that they have minimal or no discomfort following the treatment. When I have done these sorts of treatments in the past, patients would often report that their leg was sore for several days after. We don’t see this discomfort occurring with this newer laser device.”
This new technology rapidly becomes the standard of care for the treatment of varicose veins, and Austin Vein Specialists is one of the few vein centers in Texas to have this particular vein laser.
