Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) for Veins Treatment

Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) for Veins Treatment
In the past, Varicose and Spider Veins were treated with a surgical procedure called
vein removal, where the vein was completely from the leg. Today, Endovenous Laser
Therapy (EVLT) at Veins Treatment Center is used to send laser energy into the
defective vein. This process seals it completely, painlessly, and quickly.
How EVLT works
Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) is an innovative non-surgical treatment approved
by the FDA for the permanent elimination of venous insufficiency. EVLT is the
typical cause of long varicose veins, swelling of the leg, heaviness, pains, brown
discoloration of the skin, and wounds that do not heal.
This involves an accurate insertion of a thin of a laser fibber into the dead veins under
the direction of ultrasound in real time, followed by an application of laser heat energy
and closing the defective veins, which is called veins lock. Other healthy veins take
the normal flow of blood in the leg immediately.
Depending on the number of dead veins, more than one procedure may be required.
The EVLT procedure is done by Top Vein Specialists and usually takes less than 15
minutes from the beginning of the procedure until it is completed. To prevent
discomfort during the procedure expert use local anesthesia similar to that used in the
dental office. Due to its minimally invasive nature, the EVLT procedure will not
interrupt your normal daily routine. You can summarize your normal activities
immediately after the EVLT treatment and you can even go to work.
EVLT procedure
In preparation for the EVLT procedure, an ultrasound machine is used to examine and
mark the shape and size of the veins in your legs. Varicose Vein Center will also
provide you with a personalized treatment plan that will include the estimated number
of treatments your leg may require.
During the EVLT procedure for Varicose Disease, you will be awake and your leg
will be numbed with local anesthesia. A small incision is made in the Varicose Legs.
A small fibber optic probe is inserted through a needle into the vein using guide
A beam of highly concentrated laser light heats the walls of the veins which makes it
shrink. This causes the diseased vein to collapse. The precision of the laser allows the
doctor to aim at the vein without affecting the surrounding tissue. Once the vein is
closed, it disintegrates and is absorbed by the soft tissue around it. The other healthy
veins in your leg will bring normal blood flow to your heart
