Endovenus Laser Therapy is a procedure developed to treat varicose veins. Simple, fast and effective, this minimally invasive procedure alleviates the discomfort and disfiguring effect of varicose veins. Performed in a physician’s office, using a local anesthetic, the treatment consists of creating a small entry point in the skin under ultrasound guidance, inserting a thin fiber through which the laser light is transmitted to the vein. This high intensity, precise laser targets the area with a high concentrated light beam causing the vein to collapse, shrink and eventually completely disappear. Patients are able to return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. The results are permanent and only one treatment per vein is needed to achieve the desired result.
