Endovenous Laser Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure using duplex ultrasound to map out the saphenous vein and then a laser emitting energy to seal it shut. Thermal Ablation (heat) causes the contraction and permanent eradication of the varicosed vein. This treatment not only provides pain free relief for uncomfortable and unsightly varicose veins but also requires a shorter recovery time without scarring. This procedure is very effective and is performed in one office visit using local anesthesia. There is no down time and produces successful results that are permanent.
