Endevenous Laser Therapy (EVLT)
Laser treatment for varicose veins or EVLT, uses an ultra-fine fiber placed with an IV into the greater saphenous vein. Computerized laser energy is used to denature the veins inner cell layer and cause the vein to collapse and close. This particular laser treatment for varicose veins eliminates the “reflux” flow and thus the cause of the problem.
Typically used on smaller, more superficial varicose veins, this method employs a sclerosing agent that is injected directly into the vein and chemically denatures the inner vein lining. This too causes the vein to collapse and seal shut.
Compression therapy represents your first line of defense against worsening or new vein issues. This non-invasive treatment holds in bulging veins and promotes proper blood flow—decreasing the ache and fullness. Available in a variety of styles, pressure grades and lengths, you can wear compression stockings as often as needed. Continuous compression therapy may eliminate or delay your need for further varicose vein treatments.
