EVLT: Endovenous Laser Treatment
Endovenous Laser Treatment uses laser energy, which is simply a highly concentrated beam of light. Medical lasers work by delivering this light energy to the targeted tissue with extreme precision. Doing so prevents the laser from affecting the surrounding tissue. EVLT is most commonly used for varicose veins treatment.
Lasers have proven their safety and effectiveness through years of use in all types of medical procedures, from eye surgery to dermatology. In the hands of a skilled physician, lasers offer far less risk for complications than in a conventional surgery. New advances in laser fiber technology allow us to offer the “Never Touch” gold-tip fiber which provides new standards for patient comfort.
