Millions of women and men are affected by varicose and spider veins, which can be ugly and frequently unpleasant medical disorders. When blood artery walls deteriorate and lead to irregular blood flow, varicose veins form. However, any disease or activity that exerts pressure on the veins, such as weight growth, sitting or standing for extended periods, or pregnancy, might contribute to their development. Varicose and spider veins are primarily caused by genetics. The Greater Saphenous vein is being treated with Varithena Treatment for Veins. Most varicose veins form when this major superficial vein of the leg becomes inefficient. EvLT is a powerful substitute for greater saphenous vein stripping, a common surgical procedure.

How is the Varithena Treatment for Veins?

A local anesthetic will be given to the length of the vein on the day of your laser vein treatment to make the procedure almost painless. A thin laser fiber will be inserted through a very small entry point, typically close to the knee, with ultrasound equipment. After being inserted, a specific laser beam will be given into the saphenous vein wall to seal the vein off and allow blood to flow in a different direction.
