The treatment involves using heat to destroy the vein, which is then absorbed by the body. EVLA is typically performed in an outpatient setting and does not require general anesthesia. 

What is endovenous laser ablation (EVLA)?

EVLA is considered a safe and effective treatment for varicose veins, with a success rate of over 90%. It can be performed on any size or type of vein and has a shorter recovery time than traditional surgery. EVLA is also less likely to cause scarring or other side effects. EVLA is most performed on the great saphenous vein (GSV), which is the largest vein in the body and runs from the thigh to the ankle. The procedure usually takes less than an hour, and patients can typically return to their normal activities immediately post-procedure. If you are considering EVLA for the treatment of your varicose veins, be sure to consult with an experienced vascular surgeon who has experience performing the procedure.

How does EVLA treat varicose veins?

The abnormal vein is heated with laser energy, which causes the vein to collapse and close. This helps improve blood flow in the affected area and relieves pain, swelling, and cramping symptoms. Endovenous Thermal Ablation is a safe and effective treatment for varicose veins and can be performed in an outpatient setting.

What are varicose veins and why do they occur?

Varicose veins are swollen, twisted veins that usually occur on the legs. They are caused by valves in the veins that do not work properly, which allows blood to flow backward and pool in the vein. This can cause the vein to become enlarged and twisted. Varicose veins are a common condition, and they can be uncomfortable and painful. In some cases, they can also lead to more serious problems such as blood clots. Treatment for varicose veins often includes wearing compression stockings, elevating the legs, and exercising. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the veins.

What are the advantages of EVLA?

When it comes to vein procedures, the EVLA (endovenous laser ablation) is one of the most popular and effective methods available. Here are some of the key benefits that make EVLA such a popular choice:

Minimally Invasive

The EVLA procedure is minimally invasive, meaning that there is very little scarring or damage to the surrounding tissue. This is in contrast to other vein procedures which can often be quite invasive and cause extensive damage to the surrounding area.

Quick Recovery Time

Because the EVLA procedure is so minimally invasive, patients often experience a quick recovery time. In many cases, patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately following the procedure.

Highly Effective

The EVLA procedure has been shown to be highly effective in treating varicose veins. In fact, studies have shown that EVLA is successful in eliminating varicose veins in over 95% of patients who undergo the procedure.

Safe and Well-Tolerated

The EVLA procedure is very safe and well-tolerated by most patients. Complications from the procedure are rare and typically mild, such as temporary bruising or swelling at the treatment site.

If you are considering a vein treatment, the EVLA should be at the top of your list. This minimally invasive, quick, and highly effective procedure can provide you with the relief you need from varicose veins.

Am I a good candidate for EVLA?

EVLA is an ideal treatment option for patients who are seeking a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery for the treatment of varicose veins. EVLA can provide relief from the pain and discomfort associated with varicose veins, and can also improve the appearance of the affected area.

Patients who are pregnant or who have active cancer are not good candidates for EVLA. In addition, patients who have had previous vein surgery or who have clotting disorders may not be suitable candidates for this procedure. Dr. Ahn will perform a thorough evaluation to determine if EVLA is right for you.
