What is Endovenous Laser Ablation?
Endovenous laser ablation or endovenous laser treatment (ELVT) uses advanced laser technology to close off varicose veins, eliminating the discomfort and appearance of these challenging, bulging veins. Endovenous laser ablations deliver laser heat directly into the affected vein(s) using a narrow catheter. The heat causes the vessel walls to seal closed, allowing the body to eradicate the treated vein and reroute blood through healthy veins nearby, which means no more discomfort and no more bulging veins.
How Much Does Endovenous Laser Ablation Cost?
The cost of endovenous laser ablation will vary depending on your health insurance plan and the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results. For a more accurate and personalized estimate of your EVLT cost, we encourage you to come into our office for a private consultation with our team.
What Can I Expect During My Endovenous Laser Ablation Treatment?
Our endovenous laser ablation treatments are performed on an outpatient basis and do not require any type of anesthesia. During treatment, we make a single micro-incision before inserting a narrow catheter into the treatment area. Because the incision is so small, no stitches are required and there will be no scarring as a result of the incision. Once inserted, the catheter emits laser energy into the treatment areas, sealing the target vein(s) and redirecting blood flow to other healthy veins.
What Can I Expect After My Endovenous Laser Ablation Treatment?
Because endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive treatment that doesn’t require any anesthesia, patients are able to return to their normal daily activities, including work, immediately following their treatment. Our providers may ask that you wear compression garments for five to seven days following your endovenous laser treatment to promote proper healing and increase blood flow and circulation in the treated areas.
