Treat Problem Veins Without Surgery
Varicose veins can be unsightly and even painful. In the past, surgery
was the only option for relief. Now, there are non-surgical options to
treat problem veins, such as Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT). This procedure
does not require anesthesia and is performed in-office in about an hour,
with minimal pain or scarring. Most individuals are able to return to
work/activities within 24 hours.
EVLT uses a laser to treat varicose veins.
- A thin optical fiber is inserted via a very tiny incision into the damaged vein.
- The fiber is extended the length of the vein and delivers energy from a
laser light which seals the vein closed.
- The fiber is removed and the blood is automatically rerouted to healthy veins.
To schedule an EVLT appointment, please call us at (985) 230-7777 between
8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to request an appointment or learn more.
