ELVeS Radial Laser™: With focused light against varicose veins
The ELVeS Radial Laser™ works with focused light in an optimised wavelength and only needs little energy. This energy is specifically used to heat and thus close the inner wall of the damaged vein before it is absorbed by the water in the vein wall. The radially (360°) emitting laser light penetrates the tissue only marginally. That means that the skin, the muscles and the fat tissue are not damaged at all. It is for this reason that the method of treatment is extremely gentle.
The outpatient treatment is performed under local anaesthetic or full
narcosis. The doctor uses an extremely thin and ultraflexible probe.
This laser fibre is inserted into the varicose vein through a tiny
puncture in the lower leg and then pushed forward to the groin. During
this process the tip of the probe emits the focused light circularly
(radially). By slowly pulling back the laser fibre the damaged vein is
sealed over the whole length of the leg. Thus the damaging reflux of
blood is stopped.
After the operation with ELVeS Radial Laser™ patients can pursue
their everyday activities at once. Wearing surgical stockings during the
first few weeks after the operation is not absolutely required. Sport
activities are allowed after just one week. The closed vain will, as a
rule, be absorbed by the body within a few months.
Should you suffer from varicose veins - even if they were surgically treated and have come back again - ELVeS Radial Laser™ can be a treatment option for you. Please, ask for our information and advice.
