Endovenous Laser Treatment for Varicose Veins
The latest laser vein treatments achieve incredible results with minimal downtime and little discomfort.
Today, Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT™) is the standard of care in vein treatment because it’s minimally invasive, quick, convenient, with little to no downtime. Dr. Jimenez performs EVLT right here in our offices without the need for general anesthesia. After your varicose vein treatment in Destin, Florida; Pensacola, Florida; or Foley, Alabama, you’ll be able to get up, go home and go about your day.
EVLT resolves problem veins from the inside.
In the EVLT procedure, Dr. J threads a tiny catheter into the broken vein underneath the skin. As the catheter is pulled out, energy is delivered to the vein wall, causing it to “ablate” or close down. This eliminates varicose veins at the source. Your body automatically re-routs the blood flow to the heart through other, normal deeper veins, and the treated vein is naturally absorbed into the body.
EVLT ensures optimum treatment outcomes.
Because EVLT is minimally invasive, complications are quite rare. Unlike traditional surgery, there is no general anesthesia or hospitalization required. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia with typically minimal associated discomfort. Patients are encouraged to walk at the end of the procedure and resume activity. Dr. Jimenez performs the EVLT procedure at The Vein Center of Florida and The Vein Center of South Baldwin offices, so you can enjoy the utmost in convenience and privacy.
