Now you can show immediate improvement on your legs by eliminating varicose veins with EVLT®. This 45-minute laser procedure requires no general anesthesia or hospitalization, meaning no painful surgery or downtime. Deciding to get the safe and effective EVLT® is a choice everyone will notice.

About EVLT®

EVLT® is a quick, minimally invasive laser procedure that leaves no scar and can be performed in the vascular clinic under local anesthesia. The treatment takes less than one hour.

Here’s what to expect

  • Your doctor uses ultrasound to map out your vein.
  • Local anesthetic is applied.
  • A thin laser fiber is inserted through a tiny entry point, usually near the knee.
  • Laser energy is delivered to seal the faulty vein.
  • Walking immediately after the procedure is encouraged. Normal daily activity can be resumed (just avoid rigorous activities, such as gym workouts for 5 days).
  • There may be minor soreness and bruising. Any discomfort can be treated with over-the-counter, non-aspirin pain relievers as needed.
