How does EVLA work?

First and foremost an ultra sound is done and checked by our vascular surgeons at The London Vein Treatment Centre and the affected vein is marked. The ultra sound scanning is extremely important as it is what ensures that the results would be accurate and visible.

This state of the art procedure for varicose vein removal does not require an operating theatre; instead it can also be done in a simple room. The patient is asked to wear a drape and is asked to lie down or sit down depending on the area that is affected. A local anaesthetic is applied and within 20-30 minutes, the procedure is over before you know it!

The gist of this treatment for varicose vein removal is to heat the venous walls using a laser and kill them so that the dead tissue can be naturally absorbed by the body and the abnormality is no longer visible. There is no surgery involved.

When can the patient go home?

Firstly, the patient can go home immediately and it is advised that he does not drive when he leaves the clinic. Secondly, he is asked to wear stockings for two weeks. During this time, it is advised to not get the stockings wet. Apart from this, there are no restrictions and it is advisable to stick to their normal daily routine. Mild tingling sensation may be experienced but it is not persistent and goes away.

Are there any complications?

There are no complications of EVLA, due to which it is the most famous treatments that The London Vein Treatment Centre offers to its customers for varicose veins.
