The outpatient treatment is performed under local anaesthetic or full narcosis. The doctor uses an extremely thin and ultraflexible probe. This laser fibre is inserted into the varicose vein through a tiny puncture in the lower leg and then pushed forward to the groin. During this process the tip of the probe emits the focused light circularly (radially). By slowly pulling back the laser fibre the damaged vein is sealed over the whole length of the leg. Thus the damaging reflux of blood is stopped.
After the operation with ELVeS Radial Laser™ patients can pursue their everyday activities at once. Wearing surgical stockings during the first few weeks after the operation is not absolutely required. Sport activities are allowed after just one week. The closed vain will, as a rule, be absorbed by the body within a few months.
Should you suffer from varicose veins – even if they were surgically treated and have come back again – ELVeS Radial Laser™ can be a treatment option for you. Please, ask for our information and advice.
