In conjunction with EVLA, we can inject — under either light or ultrasound guidance — a foam or liquid agent to close bad veins, including smaller varicose veins and spider veins.

You can plan 60-90 minutes to complete the exam after finishing a medical history. You will be provided with disposable shorts during the ultrasound of veins in your leg(s). The vein specialist will need to access the site from groin to ankle freely.

You’ll lie on your back for the procedure and be asked to remain still throughout the exam. The sonographer will apply some gel to the skin over the area where the wand will travel. The gel is a conductive medium that allows the sound waves to travel from the wand through the skin. You will feel some pressure as the sonographer moves the device over the veins, recording the images created by the echoes of the sound waves.

Once they have captured the images they need, the healthcare provider will review the vein mapping and explain the results to the patient.

First, an ultrasound vein mapping will be performed, and the veins marked on the skin with a pen. The endovenous laser ablation procedure takes place while you’re laying down on the exam table. The vein specialist will administer local anesthesia before inserting a laser catheter into the vein. The laser light travels through the laser catheter to heat and destroy the vein without impacting the surrounding tissue. You should feel little-to-no pain during the procedure, but you may experience some bruising.

Since EVLA is a non-surgical procedure, you do not have to abstain from eating or taking medication in preparation; in fact, you should eat a light meal one to two hours prior to the procedure. You should plan on being at the vein clinic for as long as two hours. Patients are on their feet immediately after the procedure and walking is encouraged. Endovenous laser ablation should not leave a visible scar, as the laser catheter only requires a tiny incision.

Though EVLA is considered a relatively minor procedure requiring little downtime, there are some recommended post-procedure recommendations. First, abstain from running or heavy exercise for two weeks after the laser treatment. Second, wearing a compression hose for up to two weeks can help with healing. If you have any discomfort, an over-the-counter pain reliever should take care of it quickly.

Sclerotherapy is a common treatment option used to correct spider veins and varicose veins. It’s a non-surgical procedure that is generally quick and painless. With Sclerotherapy, you’re out the door of our vein clinic in anywhere from 15-45 minutes. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution called sclerosant into the veins, causing them to scar. This forces the blood in your legs to run through healthy veins instead of problem veins.
