How Does The Evlt System Actually Work To Treat Varicose Veins?

The EVLT procedure is minimally-invasive and can be performed in a doctor’s office. It addresses both the cosmetic and medical issues associated with varicose veins. 

A laser light emitted through a thin fiber inserted into the damaged vein delivers just a small amount of energy, causing the malfunctioning vein to close and seal shut.

Veins that are treatable with the EVLT system are superficial veins. Laser therapy with the EVLT system is indicated for varicose veins and varicosities with superficial reflux of the Greater Saphenous Vein, and in the treatment of incompetent refluxing veins in the superficial venous system in the lower limb.

After the  EVLT procedure, your body will naturally route blood flow to other veins.

Bulging and pain in the damaged and now-sealed vein will subside after the procedure.

Is loss of this vein a problem?

No. There are many veins in the leg and, after treatment, the blood in the faulty veins will be diverted to normal veins with functional valves. The resulting increase in circulation can significantly relieve symptoms and improve appearance.

How long does it take to recover from EVLT?

Following the extraction procedure, you may be asked to keep the leg elevated and stay off your feet for the first day. You may resume your normal activities after 24 hours except for strenuous activity that can be resumed after two weeks.

What not to do after laser vein removal?

You should be able to resume normal activities after having these treatments, but avoid physically demanding activities and strenuous exercise. High-impact exercises such as running, jogging, lifting weights, and playing sports should be avoided for at least a day or so, depending on the advice of the vein doctor.
