Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is a minimally invasive procedure that has significantly improved the treatment of varicose veins. Not only is this treatment the most effective method of treating varicose veins, but it is also a minimally invasive alternative to the traditional surgical stripping. The procedure uses laser energy to close off the damaged vein so that blood reroutes to healthier veins. You can see a quick demonstration of this procedure in this video so that you are prepared for your treatment and recovery.
