l3ELT is performed for the treatment of large, bulging varicose veins and their underlying cause, venous reflux. With endovenous laser therapy, no surgery is required and the entire procedure can be performed in less than an hour, making it the best laser treatment for varicose leg veins.

Local anesthesia is used for endovenous laser treatment (ELT). With the assistance of ultrasound, a small catheter is inserted into the greater saphenous vein (a large vein in the inner thigh); a thin laser fiber is threaded into the catheter and laser energy is delivered through the fiber into the vein, causing the vein to close.

After the endovenous laser treatment, a gauze pad and tape will be placed over the puncture site and a compression bandage will be worn for several days and replaced by compression hose for several weeks. Individuals are able to walk and return to work or resume usual activities on the same or the next day.

After approval by the FDA, Modern Vein & Laser Center acquired the most advanced laser of the latest generation, which emits an infrared laser beam. The laser energy delivered intravenously does not penetrate through the vein wall and, therefore, does not cause damage to the tissues, surrounding the vein. Result: less or completely absent post-procedure discomfort.
