Nearly 80 million men and women across the US suffer from spider and varicose veins as a result of venous reflux disease. Recent technological developments in vein care now allow vein care physicians to offer new non-invasive, non-surgical procedures. These procedures are more effective and safer for the treatment of varicose and spider veins.
One of the most important developments in vein care treatment is the implementation of Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT). Prior to EVLT, the main surgical procedure offered to patients with varicose or spider veins was vein stripping. Vein stripping required an invasive surgical procedure, general anesthesia, a lengthy recovery, and a high recurrence rate.
Endovenous Laser Treatment offers patients:
- Fast and simple procedure
- Minimally invasive
- No scarring
- Rapid recovery
- No limits on returning to physical activity
- Low recurrence rate (2% or less)
EVLT does not surgically remove the diseased veins. The EVLT treatment permanently seals the vein shut. During the procedure a thin laser fiber is threaded through the diseased vein. Heat is then applied directly to the vein lining, closing it off. The blood flow will be rerouted to healthy veins nearby. Once the vein is sealed off it will break down and be absorbed by the body, eliminating the unsightly appearance.
