WHAT IS EVLA?
Endovenous Laser Ablation Treatment 101
In EVLA (sometimes referred to as “laser treatment”), 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 destroyed veins are absorbed by your body, and circulation naturally improves.
The procedure is nearly always performed under ultrasound guidance, giving the doctor a live view of your veins, for accuracy and safety.

Real Patients, Real Results
Not only has the pain in the back of my knees disappeared, but my thighs and calves now look fabulous. Haven't seen this clear skin look in more than 20 years. I can now spend time in the garden, cleaning the floors, and playing with my fur babies on the floor without any pain.
Benefits of laser treatment.
Endovenous Laser Ablation Treatment, also known as laser therapy, is a method that treats both the symptoms of varicose veins, and also treats the underlying condition that causes them. Here are a few reasons to consider laser therapy:
– It’s safe, proven, does not require hospitalization
– The outpatient procedure time is usually less than an hour
– Recovery time is generally a matter of hours
– Most people do not find endovenous laser ablation to be overly uncomfortable
Unfortunately, laser treatment cannot treat veins that are too small, twisted, and/or close to the surface of the skin. For these cases, sclerotherapy is likely a better option. Your VCA vascular specialist will tailor a treatment plan specifically for your condition.
