Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)
Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) is a minimally invasive, clinically proven alternative to surgical vein stripping that effectively and safely treats varicose veins by using a laser fiber to deliver energy inside the vein, directly into the vein wall to close down the non-functional vein completely.
The precise laser energy achieves optimal therapeutic effect while limiting collateral damage.
