What is endovenous laser ablation or laser vein removal?

Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is minimally invasive, using a laser beam to relieve both the effects of varicose veins and the underlying cause. The bigger saphenous vein, little saphenous vein and side branches of the saphenous veins are treated with EVLA. The procedure is carried out according to ultrasound instructions which help the doctor to treat the area in question correctly and safely. EVLA only needs local anesthesia in an office with a mild pain and a rapid recovery period of less than one hour.

How Does It Work?

Your doctor will inject a little optical fiber with unheated valves directly into the vein during an EVLA operation, supplying laser light that heats some parts of the vein before it shuts. Almost immediately after the doctor removes the fiber optic the recovery process continues. The closed vein is reabsorbed into the body and the blood flow resumes naturally.

What's Scleroterapy?

Sclerotherapy for spider veins and smaller varicose veins is called gold standard vascular medicine procedure. Sometimes used to treat malformed blood vessels, varicose veins, and hemorrhoids, this treatment usually requires around 10 minutes to administer, and several sessions can be sufficient to ensure full clearance of all troublesome veins and a full cosmetic outcome.

How does sclerotherapy work?

Your doctor will administer a medicated sclerosing remedy into your affected blood vessels. This inevitably allows the veins to shut down and continue to be reabsorbed into the body. Any larger veins can obtain duplex ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. Ultrasound is used to trace and image the veins, enabling the doctor to track the solution administered. Foamed sclerosing solutions are most commonly used in wider veins, since this provides a larger surface area to work with.
