What is endovenous laser treatment?
Endovenous laser treatment is a minimally invasive procedure for varicose veins in which a thin fiber is inserted into damaged and enlarged veins through a very small incision in the skin. Laser light energy is emitted through the fiber. As the fiber is pulled through the vein, the cells reacts with the light energy, causing the vein to close and seal shut. Once blood flow has been cut off to the veins, they are no longer swollen and visible. Blood will then naturally reroute to healthy veins.

What is the recovery process after I receive endovenous laser treatment?
You may experience temporary soreness and slight swelling, which can be treated effectively with over the counter, non-aspirin pain relievers. Symptoms will subside within five days. Patients are encouraged to walk immediately after the procedure and can resume normal activities the same day. For a few weeks following treatment, your vein specialist may recommend a regular walking regimen and suggest you refrain from very strenuous activities and prolonged periods of standing. Endovenous laser treatment results in little to no scarring.

The visibility of varicose veins will be nearly or completely eliminated within one to two weeks following endovenous laser treatment.
