Endovenous Laser Ablation

At Center for Advanced Vein Care, we can treat your varicose veins with endovenous laser ablation for a more confident, healthier you.

What is endovenous laser ablation?

Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is a minimally invasive procedure, performed under ultrasound, that uses laser energy to treat varicose veins. It uses laser energy to close the diseased vein so that blood is rerouted into healthy veins. This varicose vein treatment is typically done on an outpatient basis and usually takes less than an hour. You may have minimal restrictions, but in general, you can return to your normal life the same day as the procedure with some minor lifestyle changes, making it one of the best options for varicose vein treatment.

Discomfort after the procedure is generally mild. The most common post-operative symptoms are:

Bruising:

Minimal bruising may occur, and may vary depending on the number of areas injected during tumescent anesthesia, and based on your typical bruising characteristics.

Soreness/Aching:

You may feel achy or sore in the area that was treated. This discomfort typically lasts from a few days to a few weeks. Wearing compression stockings, walking, and/or placing cold compresses on the area usually helps. Over the counter medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen can be used for discomfort as needed.

A cord-like sensation over the treated vein:

A few days or weeks after the procedure, you may feel like there is a “cord” or pulling sensation over the area of the treated vein. This sensation generally improves with movement, walking, or stretching. It typically lasts a few weeks, but can continue for a few months. Be sure to discuss risks and any other symptoms you may experience with your treating physician.

No surgery needed!

In the past, surgery was the only option for varicose veins. Now new treatments, including EVLA, have been developed that allow you to get back to living life to the fullest as soon as possible! You don’t have to live with the discomfort and shame of varicose veins. Contact our vein clinic for a free screening today!

Even though patients have some discomfort after the treatment, this is very mild. The good side is that surgery is no longer needed to eliminate spider veins or varicose veins. This varicose vein treatment is normally done as an outpatient procedure that takes about an hour and a half. You may have some limitations, but you should be able to resume your usual routine the next day.

Treatments like this one are performed in vein clinics like the Center For Advanced Vein Care. Dr. Stiller has vast professional experience to help patients get back on their feet painless within an instant.
