Endovenous Laser Ablation and Radiofrequency Ablation have replaced surgical stripping as the standards of treatment for varicose veins.

Endovenous Laser Ablation procedure

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA), also known as Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT), is a minimally-invasive procedure used to correct an underlying vein disease. EVLT is highly effective in the treatment of venous reflux, with long-term success rates.

EVLA over Traditional “Vein Stripping”?

Many patients will recall “vein stripping” as being a difficult procedure to endure in which the entire saphenous vein is removed through large skin incisions. With the current techniques, there is no need for skin incisions or anesthesia to treat troublesome varicose veinsy.

Endovenous Laser Ablation

The procedure is done directly in Vein Specialist Centers’s offices under local anesthesia by the best vascular specialists in New Jersey and New York.

Done in less than an hour

The Endovenous Laser Ablation treatment sessions are under one hour, and patients can resume most daily activities immediately after.

How is Laser Vein Ablation Performed?

What happens after Laser Vein Ablation?

Utilizing ultrasound guidance, a laser fiber is inserted into the problematic vein through a tiny incision in the skin. Laser energy is then delivered directly into the vein to close it permanently. EVLA/EVLT takes less than one hour, and patients can drive on their own after the procedure.

You might be wondering what you can expect after your vein ablation. Once the procedure is complete, the blood is automatically redirected to healthy veins. Leg circulation actually improves immediately after the procedure! After your endovenous laser ablation treatment, walking is encouraged.

Is Laser Vein Ablation Painful?

Luckily, there is no need for any pain medications post-procedure, and most activities can be resumed in a few days. EVLT is highly effective in the treatment of venous reflux, with long-term success rates proven superior to surgical stripping.
