Laser therapy for varicose veins is a non-surgical, office-based vein disease treatment which utilizes ultrasound-guided technology. Precisely delivered laser energy targets malfunctioning veins and causes them to collapse. The blood will naturally redirect to healthier vein once the damaged vein is closed. Through the use of extreme precision, none of the healthy tissue is affected during the procedure. This makes endovenous laser treatment one of the best vein disease treatments available for varicose veins and spider veins.

Benefits of Choosing Laser Therapy for Varicose Veins

Endovenous Laser Treatment involves the precise insertion of a very thin laser fiber into a diseased vein. Real-time ultrasound allows for the application of laser energy to heat and close-off the malfunctioning veins. This allows blood to flow through other healthy veins because the damaged veins are then absorbed by the body.

The treatment is in an office-based setting

If you had an emergency medical situation with vein disease in the past, you probably had to visit to the hospital and sit for hours in a waiting room. As more advanced treatment methods become available, we are now fortunate enough to be able to offer treatment procedures in an office-based setting.

Resume daily activities immediately

Laser therapy for varicose veins is a non-surgical treatment. By using local anesthesia we are able to execute procedures in an office-based clinic in less time that other surgical treatment options. By using less anesthesia it will reduce your risk of pain and post-procedure trauma. We encourage you to walk around immediately following your procedure to help “jump start” your circulation. We understand you have busy lives and schedules and don’t always have the time to spend 3-6 weeks recovering at home.

Minimal or no pain

We know surgery can be painful, and often requires a long recovery. Laser therapy is a non-surgical procedure that uses local anesthetic. The EVLT method collapses varicose veins by adapting laser energy to seal them closed. Over time blood will reroute through healthy veins and the appearance of the veins should improve.


When it comes to surgery, you might think of surgical cuts and stitches. Scarring is the norm but not with laser therapy for veins.  Due to it being minimally invasive, as a result, you will see little-to-no scarring. The method uses narrow fibers to convey laser energy directly into the damaged vessel. In addition, the procedure includes micro incisions that does not require sutures so scarring should be minimal after the process. EVLT can be very beneficial if you want to get rid of unwanted varicose veins  and start flaunting your healthy, great-feeling legs.

High success with low cost

Clinical studies using laser therapy for varicose veins have shown a success rate up to 98%. Costs of the procedure are eligible for Medicare and private insurance coverage. The cost-effectiveness of EVLT procedures makes it quite an approachable treatment method compared to other important surgeries.
