What Is Endovenous Laser Ablation?
Endovenous Laser Ablation is an ultrasound-guided, minimally invasive treatment to care for chronic venous insufficiency. In this treatment, a laser fiber is placed in the diseased vein using a tiny incision. The laser is activated so that the fiber creates enough heat to seal the vein. The body then reroutes the blood through the remaining healthy veins.
What Are The Benefits of Laser Vein Therapy/Endovenous Laser Ablation?
We are convinced that this treatment is one of the best that we have to offer. Here are just a few of the major benefits of laser vein therapy.
Endovenous Laser Therapy is a quick, comfortable treatment.
The typical endovenous laser treatment takes approximately one-two hours of your time. There is no lengthy process that requires your entire day to be spent in the hospital. The treatment is done in the comfort of our office and then patients can resume their daily schedule.
There are no large surgical incisions.
Unlike invasive vein stripping procedures of previous times, the laser fiber used in the modern endovenous laser treatment is quite thin and can therefore be inserted through the tiniest of incisions, which heal quickly.
It is highly effective and there are few complications.
With ultrasound guidance, endovenous laser ablation is truly one of the most effective treatments for varicose veins, and complications are very rare. Most all patients report a huge improvement in how their legs look and feel!
