Endo-venous Laser Treatment – or EVLT – is a fast, safe, and effective method of treatment for patients suffering from varicose veins and vein reflux disease. Varicose veins and related symptoms affect nearly 25% of all women and 18% of all men. While painful vein stripping surgery used to be the only option for removing unattractive veins, EVLT has become the new norm in vein reflux disease treatment.
What Is EVLT Vein Treatment
Developed by leading phlebologists, EVLT is a virtually painless procedure that can be completed in-office in less than 1 hour, and requires very little patient recovery time. There is minimal postoperative pain and virtually no scaring – leaving patients with immediate relief of both internal and external vein reflux disease symptoms.
The EVLT procedure uses duplex ultrasound technology to map out the positioning of the saphenous vein. After applying a local anesthetic, a catheter is placed inside the vein and positioned near the groin.
A laser fiber is then threaded through the catheter, and when activated emits targeted radial energy that gently close the vein walls from the inside – causing branch veins to shrink and lose their unattractive appearance.
After the procedure, patients are required to wear a compression bandage during the day, and a walk a minimum of 10 minutes three times per day for 2 weeks. Endovenous Laser Post-Op Instructions
