Endovascular Laser Ablation Treatment (EVLA) is a safe, proven medical procedure that not only treats the symptoms of varicose veins, but also treats the underlying condition that causes them. The outpatient procedure time is usually less than an hour and does not require hospitalization. Most people do not find endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) therapy to be overly uncomfortable, and recovery time is generally a matter of hours.
Endovenous Thermal Ablation Treatment
In EVLA, the doctor uses a small optic fiber inserted directly into targeted veins, and laser light is delivered to heat and collapse veins with unhealthy valves. The procedure is nearly always performed under ultrasound guidance, giving the doctor a live view of your veins, for accuracy and safety.

HOW EVLA TREATMENT WORKS
Healthy Blood Flow Restored For Improved Circulation
EVLA treats varicose veins by destroying veins with damaged valves; they are eventually absorbed by your body. After EVLA, blood flow is diverted to healthy veins, improving circulation.
CUSTOMIZED TREATMENT FOR VARICOSE VEINS
Every Patient Is Unique, So Is Every Treatment Plan.
EVLA cannot treat veins that are too small, twisted, and/or close to the surface of the skin; that’s what sclerotherapy is for. Dr Sharier will tailor a treatment plan specifically for your condition; it may involve a combination of three types of treatments. The goal is to improve your health and restore your active lifestyle as quickly as possible.
