Endovenous Laser Therapy
A minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins where a thin fiber is inserted into the damaged vein to deliver a targeted laser beam to close and seal the vein. An abnormal vein will never heal and become normally functioning, so closing of the vein eliminates the increased venous pressure and swelling that causes symptoms in your legs. Blood is automatically routed to other veins.
The entire procedure lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour, is performed in our office, requires only a local anesthetic, causes minimal scarring, with up to a 98% success rate (anyone who says 100% success at anything is exaggerating).
After treatment you are encouraged to walk and can resume limited activity the same day.
