Do you suffer from unsightly varicose veins on your legs? These veins are frustrating to many cosmetic patients, but if left untreated may also present health risks including circulation concerns.
Endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive state-of-the-art technique for the treatment of varicose veins. EVLA works by inserting a laser fiber into the vein and then heating the vein until is seals shut. The vein will gradually be absorbed by the body and blood will naturally be re-routed through the remaining healthy veins.
EVLA sounds painful but is in fact quite comfortable. A local anesthetic will be used during treatment, however very few patients report feeling pain during the procedure. In addition to comfort, EVLA is unique from other vein treatments in that it is virtually permanent. Over 90% of treated veins remain closed a year after treatment.
While results are often immediately noticeable, you may require anywhere from 2-4 treatments to reach your cosmetic goals. Contact our office today to learn more or to schedule your appointment.
