Endovenous Laser Vein Treatment
Finally, for large or complicated varicose veins, Dr. Alizadeh may recommend Endovenous Laser Vein Treatment, also known as VenaCure EVLT™, which many specialists regard as the laser vein treatment "gold standard" because it is safe, 98% effective, and requires only topical anesthesia and no surgery. EVLT laser vein treatment delivers laser energy through a thin fiber inserted into the varicose vein.
The highly concentrated burst of laser energy permanently seals off the blood vessel, and blood then reroutes automatically to another, healthier vein nearby. Like the other treatments listed above, recovery from EVLT laser vein treatment is fast and requires no downtime. Immediately following treatment, patients may return to their normal activities.
