ENDOVENOUS LASER TREATMENT (EVLT)

Endovenous Laser Treatment is a minimally invasive medical procedure used for treating varicose veins. The results of this treatment should be permanent thanks to the elimination of the great saphenous vein. The malfunction of this vein is the root of the problem that comes with varicose veins..

The treatment consists of using thermal or laser energy to cauterize (burn) and close the varicose veins.

HOW IS THE PROCEDURE PERFORMED?

After applying local anesthesia, the medical specialist inserts a laser fiber into the vein using a catheter (tube); the laser emits thermal energy that heats the vein and seals it permanently to prevent blood circulating through it, eliminating or reducing its size. The blood is then directed to other healthy veins.

ADVANTAGES OF EVLT?

  • Ambulatory treatment: The patient does not require hospitalization and can return to normal daily activities following the procedure.
  • It allows the treatment of large veins.
  • It is less painful than conventional surgery.
  • It is done under local anesthesia.

TIME OF DISABILITY?

The patient can return to his or her daily activity almost immediately; however, some analgesics may be prescribed for general discomforts. Small bruises may appear after the procedure but they will dissolve within a few weeks.

  • It is important to note that once the treatment is finished, the patient should not lift heavy objects (over 20 pounds) until one week after completion.

HOW LONG DOES THE EVLT PROCEDURE TAKE?

  • The procedure takes approximately one hour.

LASER VARICOSE VEINS

Laser treatment helps to improve the appearance of certain types of veins, without the need of incisions or recovery time, using laser light to compress blood vessels and achieve visible results. It is a simple and clinically proven procedure.

'Spider veins' are small capillary branches of blue, purple, and red color formed on the surface of the skin of the legs (usually found on the ankles, calves, and thighs).

HOW IS THE PROCEDURE PERFORMED?

This treatment consists of the administration of a high concentration light energy beam to each of the spider veins. The light passes through the skin and sends pulses of energy to the vein to be treated, without damaging the surrounding tissue. By absorbing the light, the blood warms and causes the vein to shrink and begin to disappear.

During this procedure the patient is awake and conscious. The technology used at Mark Medical Care includes a cold shot with each beam of light to reduce the sensation of discomfort.
