Varicose Vein Treatment
How does the InvisiVein Laser treat varicose veins?
The InvisiVein endovenous laser is ideal for patients diagnosed with abnormal saphenous vein valvular insufficiency. An in-office ultrasound combined with a provider consultation determines if patients have GSV reflux. Typically patients present with bulging varicose veins with associated symptoms including pain and swelling. InvisiVein Laser Treatment (EVLT) uses heat to attack the underlying cause of varicose veins, the abnormal GSV. Leg veins have valves. When those valves don’t close properly, blood flows backwards by gravity towards the feet.
The increased pressure and backflow causes swelling which presses on nerves resulting in many symptoms. In our office we use the InvisiVein Laser uses to heat seal the abnormal GSV. If needed, during the same session bulging branch varicosities are then removed through tiny punctures using a minimally invasive ambulatory phlebectomy technique. When performed together the procedures are commonly referred to as EVLT/AP. Procedures take about an hour and are performed in our office using local anesthesia.
