Endovenous Laser : A gentle, minimally invasive, and quick treatment.
Endovenous Laser Treatment is a quick, neat and efficient treatment for varicose veins, in particular for dealing
with the greater saphenous vein and the small saphenous vein, as well as tributaries, branch varicosities, reticular
veins, spider veins and telangiectasia, and may help the cicatrisation of venous ulcers.
No more hospitalisation, operating theatres, general anaesthetic, time off work, painful side effects,
scars or uncontrollably recurring varicose veins!
Endovenous Laser Treatment treats the vein directly, without the need to remove it, by using a very narrow
optical fibre which is introduced under local anaesthetic.
This partly explains the minimal trauma involved in the treatment. The procedure is performed at the clinic and lasts between 1 and 2 hours. You will be able to walk straightaway and can return immediately to your
normal daily activities, including returning to work the day after the procedure, if you so wish.
- This new technique was described for the first time in 1979 and it has been in general use for just over six years.
Several thousand patients have benefited from this treatment throughout the world, especially in the USA,
where the procedure is very well developed.
- Impressive efficiency: studies performed in this area show excellent mid-term results.
