How Endovenous Laser Ablation Can Repair Your Damaged Veins

If you’re bothered by bulging or lumpy varicose veins, you aren’t alone. An estimated 20% of adults will experience varicose veins at some point, according to data published by the Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care. The good news is that if you’re part of that 20%, you aren’t stuck with those pesky veins forever.

Many options for treating varicose veins are available, including endovenous laser ablation.

Repair damaged veins with CoolTouch CTEV™ 

Endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive used to treat varicose veins through a small incision. The procedure treats diseased veins through the use of:

  • Catheters: used to place the laser fibers into the diseased vein
  • Lasers: used to warm up the vein, which closes down the vein
  • Ultrasounds: used to allow visuals during the procedure

During the procedure, the laser fibers (which are guided into place using the ultrasound) gently heat up the problematic vein. This causes the vein to shut down. As a result, the blood flow is redirected into other veins. 

Because the laser shuts down the problematic vein, you should experience relief from the symptoms of the varicose vein. Over time, the vein itself will start to fade as the body absorbs the vein. 

Benefits of endovenous laser ablation

Endovenous laser ablation repairs your damaged veins without damaging other surrounding tissues. That’s all thanks to the technology behind the CoolTouch CTEV ™. Even better, you’ll also experience the following perks:

  • No downtime: You’ll need to wear compression stockings, but you’ll be able to walk after your procedure
  • Less bruising than traditional vein stripping
  • Results you can count on: the CoolTouch CTEV ™ has a very success rate — 98-100%!

This procedure can treat varicose veins in just about 45 minutes, which means you can get back to your daily activities in no time.
