EVLT Vein Treatment Frequently Asked ?'s

WHAT IS EVLT?

EndoVenous Laser Treatment uses targeted laser energy to seal the vein shut, and help you look and feel better fast.  The laser energy damages the vein walls, shrinking them and closing the faulty vein so that the blood cannot flow through it.  This eliminates vein bulging at its source.  97% of first-time EVLT treatments are successful.

The EVLT Procedure

EVLT is a quick, minimally invasive laser procedure that leaves no scar and can be performed in the doctor's office.  The treatment takes less than one hour.  Here's what to expect.

  • Your doctor uses ultrasound to map out your vein

  • Local anesthetic is applied

  • A thin laser fiber is inserted through a tiny entrypoint, usually near the knee

  • Laser energy is delivered to seal the faulty vein

  • Walking immediately after the procedure is encouraged.  Normal daily activity can be resumed (avoiding rigorous activities, such as running, weight lifting, and impact aerobics).

  • There may be minor soreness and bruising.  Any discomfort can be treated with over-the-counter, non-aspirin pain relievers (such as ibuprofen or acetominophen) as needed.
