Endovenous Laser Ablation

Endovenous Laser Ablation

Endovenous Laser Ablation is used to treat varicose veins.

A small laser fiber is inserted, through a needle stick in the skin, into the damaged vein. Pulses of light are delivered inside the vein, which causes the vein to collapse and seal shut. This treatment is FDA approved and is done in-office under local anesthesia. Patients can return to normal activity right away with minimal discomfort.

Endovenous Laser Ablation is a minimally invasive therapy for treating chronic venous insufficiency that uses laser energy to shrink and collapse the affected veins. Taking out varicose veins alone will not treat the source of your varicose veins. At OC Cosmetic and Vein Center, we eliminate the source of varicose vein development by Endovenous Laser Ablation.
The EVLA procedure uses laser energy to treat veins with extreme precision and accuracy while avoiding affecting the neighboring tissues. Lasers have long been used safely and effectively in various medical treatments, which has allowed them to be proven to be safe and efficient. Laser surgery is far safer than other traditional operations.
In EVLA, a thin fiber guided by ultrasound technology will be inserted gently to treat vein diseases. The fiber produces laser heat to close the veins and eliminate venous reflux. Once EVLA treats the unhealthy vein, the remaining blood flow is re-routed to normal veins within the legs to return to the heart and lungs.
Patients should get right back to their normal activities the same day after the procedure is completed. Get in touch with OC Cosmetic and Vein Center today to determine if Endovenous Laser Ablation is the right vein treatment for you.


EVLA is a quick, minimally invasive procedure that uses ultrasound guidance. A small puncture is made near the knee, and the laser fiber is inserted into the underlying vein via a tiny needle. The fiber is then passed up the injured vein. The laser heats and closes the vein when the fiber is removed.
The EVLA procedure is simple and does not require general anesthesia. It’s also a non-invasive treatment that produces few scars.
You’ll be completely alert and awake during the procedure, but you will not feel any pain since we will numb your leg with a topical and local anesthetic.
You could notice results right away following the treatment. If you have some pain or bruising after the procedure, it’s nothing to worry about. Over-the-counter pain relievers can be used to treat minor aches and pains. Because the operation does not require a surgical incision, there is no scar. Patients can resume their normal activities right away.
The Endovenous Laser Ablation procedure has a 97% success rate for first-time endovenous laser ablation treatments. It offers long-lasting results without requiring a hospital stay, with little risk of scarring.
Treatment is not advised for persons with deep vein thrombosis or incompetence and individuals who can’t walk for other reasons. Patients should wait three months or more after giving birth or undergoing significant surgery before receiving therapy for vein disease.
