While all medical procedures have some degree of risk associated with them, the endovenous laser treatment risks that patients may experience are relatively minor.
The most common of all endovenous laser treatment risks is bruising at the site of the vein and where the fiber optic laser is inserted. In fact, bruising is an incredibly common side effect of many different vein procedures, due to the fact that many of these procedures affect how and where blood flows in the body. Because bruising is caused by blood pooling under the skin as small blood vessels are disrupted and broken, it is understandable why this is the most common of endovenous laser treatment complications.
Other potential endovenous laser treatment complications include skin discoloration, minor burns, and pain while recovering. Thankfully, patients can help reduce all of these risks by trusting in an experienced medical group for their care. At our offices, patient care and comfort is first and foremost for laser vein removal or any of the other procedures that patients rely on.
