Treatment of Varicose Veins with the latest techniques
What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are veins that become inflamed due to malfunction of the valves and walls that cover them. If these are not strong enough to carry blood against gravity and back to the heart, the blood returns and accumulates, causing inflammation, numbness, pain, fatigue and the appearance of the famous spider veins.

Treatments for varicose veins!
Laser endovenoso (EVLT)
Laser Ablation Treatment is a minimally invasive medical procedure to treat varicose veins almost definitively thanks to the elimination of the Saphenous Vein External. The malfunction of this vein is the root of the problem of varicose veins.
The Laser Ablation treatment consists of using the energy by thermal or laser to cauterize (burn) and close the varicose veins.
How is the endovenoso laser procedure (evlt)?
After applying local anesthesia, the medical specialist inserts a laser fiber into the vein using a catheter (tube); the laser emits thermal energy that heats the vein and permanently seals it to prevent blood circulating through it, disappearing or reducing its size. The blood is directed to other veins that are healthy.
What are the advantages of the energy laser (evlt)?
- Outpatient treatment: The patient does not require hospitalization and can return to normal daily activities after RF Ablation.
- It allows treating large veins.
- Less painful than conventional surgery.
- It is done under local anaesthesia.
Undefined laser disability time (evlt)?
The patient can return to his daily activity almost immediately, however he can receive a prescription of analgesics for general discomforts and small bruises may appear after the procedure, which disappear in a few weeks.
It is important to note that once the treatment is finished, the patient should not lift heavy objects (greater than 20 pounds) until one week after completion.
How long does last treatment laser (evlt) last?
- The Sclerotherapy Treatment takes approximately one hour.
- Non-invasive treatment of varicose veins

Is Laser Ablation Safe
Varicose veins in most cases appear in the legs. They often protrude and are blue. Normally, the valves in your veins keep blood flowing to the heart, so it does not accumulate in one place.
Varicose vein valves may be damaged or absent. This causes the veins to fill with blood, especially when you are standing.
The following treatments to treat varicose veins can be done in the office of a health care provider or in a clinic. You will be given a local aesthetic to numb your leg.
Laser treatment can be used on the surface of the skin. A few small bursts of light will make the small varicose veins disappear. Your doctor will slide a flexible tube (catheter) up along the vein.
