Five Advantages of Endovenous Laser Ablation

Five Advantages of Endovenous Laser Ablation

Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is one of the most cutting-edge technologies for treating varicose veins and offers several distinct advantages over previous varicose vein treatments.

Local Anesthesia
The safety of EVLA can be improved by using local anesthesia before inserting the laser catheter into the leg. This eliminates any potential dangers and negative effects of general anesthetics, such as amnesia, infection, nausea, and fatigue. The use of local anesthesia also allows the procedure to be performed in the doctor's office rather than in the operating room.

Quick Recovery
Patients who receive EVLA are usually able to return to normal activities within one day of treatment. After surgery, some patients may experience mild discomfort and pain, but there should be no long-term side effects. Because minimally invasive techniques use very small incisions, there are no scars after EVLT.

Get Results Quickly
EVLA treatment takes approximately 50 minutes and results are immediate. Although varicose veins will not disappear immediately, symptoms should improve after surgery. Over time, veins disappear, become scar tissue and are absorbed by the body.

All Skin Types
EVLA, when used appropriately, can treat a variety of venous insufficiency problems as it works on all skin types and can heal damaged veins deep in the legs.

Clinically Proven
According to numerous studies, endovenous laser ablation is one of the safest and most effective ways to permanently treat varicose veins and spider veins. One study found that endovenous laser ablation was comparable to traditional surgical vein stripping in terms of phlebectomy outcomes. In fact, the rate of vein recurrence after endovenous laser ablation is actually lower.
