An ultrasound is conducted to visualize the vein disease and to map the problematic veins. If treatment is required, you will be scheduled for laser therapy.
Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) is a minimally invasive treatment that is done in 1 hour in an outpatient setting. Small optic fiber is inserted through a needle into the varicose vein under ultrasound guidance. The laser is activated and as the optic fiber is removed from the vein, it heats and closes the vein. Once the vein is closed, the blood that was circulating through the vein is naturally rerouted to other healthy veins. Over time, the closed vein is absorbed by the body.
It is important that you follow your post-operative instructions and attend your appointments as scheduled.

Our team of surgeons are dedicated to providing non-surgical treatment of vein disease. More than 80 million Americans suffer from vein disease and there has been a recent evolution of treatment away from painful surgical stripping to laser elimination of veins. Plastic surgeons have dealt with cosmetic laser treatment of veins and sclerotherapy for many years. However, until recently, treatment of vericose veins has been completed through surgical stripping that used to be done by vascular surgeons. Newer treatments that replace stripping with laser elimiation has brought varicose veins laser treatment into scope of practice and expertise of our plastic surgeons. We have spent many years treating vein disease related wounds we quickly adopted a method for treating vein disease that we found to truly meet the needs of our patients.
As a result, we have opened VeinBusters. VeinBusters is a vein clinic that is dedicated to the use of lasers to treat varicose veins. We also continue to offer sclerotherapy to our patients as we always have. We find our VeinBuster brand to be fun and in its appealing. It is our hope as medical educators that our engaging approach to the vein disease will provide education and awareness to the public about new approaches to vein disease.
We suggest that you learn more about vein disease and our services at veinbusters.com.
