The key benefits of Endovenous Laser Therapy

An effective, fast and safe treatment for removing Varicose Veins, there are a number of benefits to conducting EVLA treatment for varicose veins.

With minimal long-lasting effects from the laser procedure, along with a short healing time, EVLA vein treatment is pain free and leaves no scar. 

Able to be performed under general anaesthesia, a vein sclerotherapy procedure is a top recommended choice for patients by their doctors. 


What is an EVLA Vein Treatment?

Also referred to as  Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) is a new method of laser treatment for removing varicose veins.

Safely removing the varicose veins without the need for surgery, the EVLA procedure involves heating the veins with a laser to safely remove them.

The heat from the laser will destroy the walls surrounding the varicose veins, the dead tissue then being absorbed by the body. 

Simple to conduct, laser ablation can be completed at Changes Clinic

What to expect during an EVLA Vein Removal?

Unsure of what to expect during your EVLA varicose vein treatment? A simple and quick process, this treatment will take up to 30 minutes on each leg. 

Your trained and highly skilled surgeon will with the use of ultrasound, place a thin, plastic tube (catheter) into your vein using a needle and wire. 

With a laser fibre, this will be positioned into the catheter, heating the highest point within the vein. The laser will then be used, pulling it along with the length of the vein in order to completely close it. 

Both the catheter and the laser will be removed from the vein before a dressing is added to the needle puncture. 

This treatment will remove the living fibre of the varicose vein, before re-routing into a healthier vein. 

Aftercare for EVLA Varicose Vein Removal

You may expect and be thinking that after your EVLA procedure that you will be unable to continue with your daily activities straight away, this is far from the case. You will be pleased to note that the varicose vein healing time is incredibly short, with patients recommended continued walking throughout healing. 

Heavy physical activity, such as aerobics and running, is recommended not to be conducted for up to 3-4 weeks after your EVLA Varicose Vein treatment

If after your vein removal, you are experiencing numb, sore or bruising legs, this is only temporary and can be numbed with pain relief as recommended by your prescribing doctor.
