Endovenous laser ablation treatment focuses on the large veins that cause unsightly, bulging varicose veins, usually on your legs. “Endovenous” refers to the inside of your veins, as the laser directs amplified light energy inside your veins. “Vein ablation” means the laser destroys a vein in a way that causes it to shrivel away.
To put it all together, endovenous laser ablation refers to the process that uses lasers placed in your vein to destroy it from the inside. Since venous ablation, also called EVLA or EVLT treatment, is minimally invasive, the procedure can be done in your NYC vein center.
Endovenous Laser Ablation Procedure
This is a completely safe procedure. If you have concerns regarding the consequences of destroying a vein, you do not need to worry. When deep-seated veins become enlarged enough to cause varicose veins, they are no longer healthy and may even be hindering healthy circulation. In fact, it’s safer than vein ligation, which is the surgical removal of varicose veins.
