Endovenous Laser Treatment is a quick, neat and efficient treatment for varicose veins, in particular for dealing with the greater saphenous vein and the small saphenous vein, as well as tributaries, branch varicosities, reticular veins, spider veins and telangiectasia, and may help the cicatrisation of venous ulcers.
Advantages to laser compared to conventional surgery
Endovenous Laser Treatment treats the vein directly, without the need to remove it, by using a very narrow optical fibre which is introduced under local anaesthetic. This partly explains the minimal trauma involved in the treatment. The procedure is performed at the clinic and lasts between 1 and 2 hours.
You will be able to walk straight away and can return immediately to your normal daily activities, including returning to work the day after the procedure, if you so wish.
