EVLT (EndoVenous Laser Treatment) is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat varicose veins. A probe is inserted into the affected vein, which then sends laser energy inside and along the length of the vein. This energy damages the the vein, shrinking it closed so that blood can no longer flow through it. Blood is then re-routed into other healthy veins in the leg. EVLT requires no downtime, but bandages and compression stockings may be worn for up to three weeks after treatment.
