Endovenous Laser Ablation, commonly known as EVLA, is a cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedure used to treat varicose veins. Employing laser energy, EVLA precisely targets the affected veins, causing them to close and gradually be absorbed by the body, all while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed.
EVLA is often recommended for individuals suffering from varicose veins that cause symptoms such as pain, swelling, itching, or skin changes. It’s also chosen for cosmetic reasons when patients wish to alleviate the appearance of unsightly veins. This procedure serves as an alternative to surgical stripping, offering fewer complications and a quicker recovery.
Patients typically notice a significant improvement post-EVLA. Not only do the discomfort and visual appearance of varicose veins diminish, but potential complications like venous ulcers or blood clots are also reduced. The procedure boasts a high success rate, ensuring veins remain closed in the long term.
Post-procedure, patients might be required to wear compression stockings to aid in healing and improve blood flow. Mild discomfort, bruising, or swelling may be experienced, but these symptoms usually subside within a few days. Regular activities can be resumed quickly, often within a day or two. However, strenuous exercise might be postponed for a week or so. Periodic follow-ups are crucial to monitor the treated veins and ensure optimal results.
For effective and minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins, EVLA stands as a beacon of modern vascular care. Schedule your consultation with our vascular specialists today and take the step towards healthier, more radiant legs.
