LASER FOR EVLT
ENDOVENOUS LASER TREATMENT
The high absorption of water and hemoglobin by diode laser with wavelength of 980 nm is adopted for the treatment of lower limb varicose veins（EVLT）. Through puncture into the blood vessels, the high-energy laser is introduced into the veins to accurately damage the inner wall of the blood vessels, and the veins will undergo fibrosis and then achieve the purpose of blood vessel closure, so as to eliminate the varicose bulge blood vessels and achieve the therapeutic effect.The absorption rate of oxygenated hemoglobin at the wavelength of 980nm is 2 times higher than that at 810nm, so the thermal damage at the wavelength of 980nm is less and the coagulation effect is better. Diode laser treatment is addapt to puncture needles, so it is a minimally invasive solution with less postoperative discomfort and faster recovery of patients.
What Is Endovenous Laser Treatment?
Endovenous Laser Treatment, also known as endovenous laser ablation, is a non-surgical, outpatient laser treatment for varicose veins. It utilizes ultrasound-guided technology to precisely deliver laser energy that targets malfunctioning veins and causes them to collapse. Once closed, the blood flow is naturally redirected to healthier veins.
How long does it take to recover from EVLT?
Recovery time for EVLT is shorter than other treatments and is relatively pain free. While walking is encouraged soon after the procedure, any strenuous exercise involving the legs should be avoided for 2-3 weeks to allow adequate time for healing.
You may experience bruising and mild discomfort in the treated leg for 2-4 weeks after treatment.
