EVLT – Laser Vein Treatment

Endovenous Laser Treatment has become the gold standard for varicose vein treatment. EVLT uses laser uses laser energy, a high concentrated beam of light. A thin fiber is inserted into the damaged vein through a small incision. The laser’s energy is used to target the tissue with extreme precision. The tissue reacts with the light energy causing the vein to close and seal shut. The blood is then routed to other healthy veins.
