What is Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)?
EVLT, also known as endovenous laser therapy or endovenous laser ablation, is a procedure that is typically used to treat varicose veins. We will anesthetize the leg beforehand to reduce discomfort. From there, a tiny laser fiber is inserted through the patient’s skin and maneuvered into the greater saphenous vein in the thigh. Ultrasound is used for guidance.
During this treatment at our office in Halifax, we want to target the source of the problem. After the heat from the laser closes the varicose vein, the body will reroute the blood through the healthy veins. An impressive 98 percent of patients are successfully treated with EVLT.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a treatment at our vein clinic for spider and varicose veins in which a special solution is injected into the diseased vein. This solution irritates the interior walls and causes them to seal themselves shut. The vein eventually shrinks and is reabsorbed into the body, which also reroutes the blood through healthy veins.
The length of treatment will depend on the number of veins that require injections, among other factors. Some patients in Halifax may need more than one session to get all of their veins treated. However, it all depends on the unique situation. The patient may have to wear compression stockings for a set amount of time after the procedure.
