The Total Skin Center uses the most current technology to treat varicose veins. Endovenous Laser Treatment, EVLT, is a safe, reliable, and minimally invasive procedure that treats varicose veins. The procedure eliminates the need for venous surgery and is a much safer, more convenient alternative. Your recovery period will be quick, and you should be able to continue with your daily activities immediately.
Enodvenous Laser Treatment Procedure
EVLT is a relatively simple procedure. A small fiber will be inserted into the varicose vein to shine infrared light onto the inside walls of the blood vessel. The unhealthy vein will contract and eventually close. As the vein seals shut, blood is redirected to nearby functioning blood vessels. Eventually, the sealed vein will dissolve and be absorbed into the body. The precise laser technology allows for targeted treatment and minimal pain. The procedure takes a maximum of two hours, and you will be awake the whole time.
EVLT is a safe, reliable alternative to more invasive surgical procedures. The healing process takes 2-3 weeks, during which you will be able to walk normally.
