Endovenous laser therapy is an option for treating varicose veins. After the vascular surgeons at Central Florida Vein and Vascular Center have assessed your venous health or varicose veins through a diagnostic ultrasound, your next step may be endovenous laser treatment at one of our three locations: Ocoee, Kissimmee, and The Villages. This treatment has quickly become a gold standard in varicose vein treatment. Here’s what you can expect from this treatment.
Endovenous Laser Treatment for Varicose Veins
During an endovenous laser therapy treatment, a specialist uses an ultrasound to locate the affected vein. A small catheter is then inserted into the vein, where heat is applied. This heat causes the vein to collapse and seal shut, effectively treating the varicose vein. The vein closure also has a positive impact on blood flow.
Patients receive local anesthesia during the procedure and doctors will numb the area. Afterward, a leg wrap or stocking is placed on the leg for one to two weeks while it heals. Patients experience minimal downtime from EVLT—they are able to walk immediately after the procedure, and typically return to work the following day.
Post-treatment, patients enjoy legs without visible, bumpy veins. Closing the affected vein helps prevent varicose veins from developing into a more serious condition, such as blood clots or venous ulcers.
Laser therapy has been proven to be successful and safe, with a success rate 0f 90-100% depending on which study you look at. Learn more about the success rate here.
