What Is VenaCure EVLT?

With a strong success record of 98 percent in treating varicose veins, VenaCure EVLT is among the most popular treatments offered at Southern Vein and Laser Center. With our assistance, VenaCure patients can resume daily activities without pain or unsightly veins just hours after laser treatment.

How VenaCure Works

The revolutionary VenaCure EVLT procedure works by using a laser to seal diseased varicose veins.

Ultrasound imagery helps doctors to map out diseased veins. Then, a small entry point is made in the skin, generally right below the knee. A laser fiber delivers pulses of energy to the affected veins through a thin laser fiber threaded through the incision. Removal of the laser follows the treatment. A bandage covers the incision after the procedure.

During and After VenaCure EVLT

Local anesthetic numbs the area during the procedure to reduce pain. Patients may feel tugging or pulling while the laser is in place. Sealing off the veins should be completely painless. Removing the laser fiber is quick and patients shouldn’t feel any discomfort.

Most treatments take under 45 minutes. Recovery may take 30 minutes to one hour. Normal activities can resume within 24 hours. Walking immediately after therapy is advisable. Wait 36 to 48 hours for high-impact activities. Minor bruising or soreness may occur in some patients. These should fade within the days following your procedure.
