Endovenous LASER: Myths and Reality


\"VaricoseNovember 17th, 2013. New York. The New York Vein Treatment Center is launching a new campaign designed to educate the public on endovenous LASER therapy (EVLT). According to the NYC Vein Treatment Center, EVLT is a minimally invasive form of vein treatment that eliminates varicose veins without the need for general anesthesia or hospital admission. These vascular specialists in Manhattan hope to encourage the public to consider this safe and effective procedure when choosing a form of vein treatment.

According to Dr. Lev Khitin, a leading vein doctor at the New York Vein Treatment Center, endovenous LASER owes much of its success to its minimally invasive nature. “This treatment involves the use of only a tiny catheter, allowing the procedure to be done quickly and with no pain. Immediately after the procedure, which usually takes about fifteen minutes, the patients can return to all their normal activities, including work and exercises”.

The NYC vein specialists at New York Vein Treatment Center are using social media to help distribute information on this form of vein treatment. Interested readers can learn more about EVLT by visiting the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages. This campaign will run throughout the month of November.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.

Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment modalities that provide excellent, most importantly permanent results with no side-effects or downtime. Some of these modalities are foam- sclerotherapy and cryo-sclero, radio-frequency ablation, micro-phlebectomy, endovenous LASER obliteration and many others.
