The VenaCure EVLT laser vein treatment procedure utilizes laser energy to achieve proven results without the discomfort and lengthy recovery experienced throughout the surgical option of ligation and vein stripping. The entire procedure takes about ONE HOUR, and depending on the severity of your condition, may be covered by your insurance.
In endovenous laser treatment, a thin fiber is inserted into the damaged vein through a very small entry point in the skin. A laser light is emitted through the fiber, as the fiber is pulled back through the vein, it delivers just the right amount of energy. The targeted tissue reacts with the light energy, causing the vein to close and seal shut. The veins that are closed are superficial veins that handle less than five percent of the body's blood flow. The blood is automatically routed to other, healthy veins.
Our Vascular Surgeons will examine and advise you concerning the options for treatment of spider and varicose veins.
