How does the EVLT work?
The laser energy damages the vein walls, shrinking them and closing flow through it. This eliminates vein bulging at its source.
How do I know if the EVLT(r) procedure is for me?
Anyone who suffers from bulging and painful varicose veins should be evaluated to determine if this procedure would be a suitable treatment.
How does the EVLT(r) procedure work?
The procedure lasts about an hour, and is performed using injections of lidocaine, a numbing agent. A very small laser fiber is threaded into the vein. The energy from the laser closes the vein, causing the blood to divert to other, healthy veins.
Will my varicose veins totally disappear following the EVLT(r) procedure?
In most cases, there will be a significant reduction in the discomfort and visibility of the varicose veins. However, we do offer sclerotherapy for those patients who desire an even more dramatic cosmetic result following the procedure.
How much recovery time should I plan following the EVLT(r) procedure?
You will be able to resume most normal daily activities immediately, with the exception of a few things like heavy lifting and vigorous aerobic workouts.
What are the side-effects and complications of this procedure?
EVLT速, like all minimally invasive procedures, can potentially have some slight bruising, which commonly disappears within the first few weeks. With EVLT速, you will feel a delayed tightness (or “pulling” sensation) 4-7 days after laser treatment which is normal and expected following a successful treatment.
How successful is EVLT?
Published clinical studies show that EVLT has a 98% initial success rate with excellent long-term results.
Does health insurance cover this procedure?
Yes, most of the insurance companies does.
