The Endovenous Laser Treatment procedure is designed to make sure there is minimal disturbance to the patient’s life and activities immediately following. There is no recovery time after this procedure for the treatment of painful varicose veins. You may feel slight tightening of the area and some mild bruising can occur, but this is normal and is not painful. After the procedure, there is no recovery time, but we do encourage that no heavy lifting be done afterward. We also encourage minimizing vigorous exercise, depending on each patient this will vary.
Once the varicose vein is closed by the Endovenous Laser Treatment procedure, the blood is then rerouted to deeper veins and circulation improves significantly. After a short time, normal exercise and physical activity will increase and be much less painful. Prior to the treatment of varicose veins with the EVLT, patients experienced high levels of discomfort in small movements. Walking that was once difficult will now be enjoyable after the laser treatment.
Not only will your circulation improve thereby improving your overall health, but also the appearance of unsightly varicose veins is significantly minimized. Varicose veins cause embarrassment, and attempts to conceal them are difficult. After this minimally invasive procedure is completed there’s no need to worry about showing off some leg, uncovering your hands and other areas.
