IS A LASER VEIN TREATMENT RIGHT FOR ME?

There are two kinds of laser vein treatments , also known as vascular laser treatments. One is cosmetic laser treatment (not covered by insurance) the other is what this blog will focus on; medical (which is usually covered by insurance and performed by a vein specialist) laser vein treatment for varicose veins.

Improvements in ultrasound technology have made it possible to image the veins in your legs showing where the venous dysfunction is and guide the vein specialist physician to make personalized treatment recommendations. These recommendations often include a variety of treatment types. For medical treatment the first vein treatments are using laser technology.

LASER VEIN TREATMENT OPTIONS

EVLT (Endovenous Laser Treatment) is an effective treatment for varicose veins.  EVLT vein treatment shuts down veins from the inside by use of laser and ultrasound technology – all with minimal discomfort or side effects. This effectively treats the underlying veins that are not functioning, which caused the varicose veins to appear. Stopping the source of the varicosities is key! This can only be done under ultrasound guidance.

HIGHLIGHTS OF VENACURE EVLT ARE:

Walking immediately after the vascular procedure is encouraged. Normal daily activity can be resumed after laser vein treatments; just avoid rigorous activities such as gym workouts for one week.

We are excited about the advantages that our technology brings. The two biggest advantages are the correct tissue targeting of the 1470 nm wavelength laser and the gold tip on the laser fiber that improves precision to the delivery of the laser energy.
