Endovenous Laser Ablation

In association with Aquilant we use the latest laser technology - 1470nm wavelength lasers giving high treatment reliability with low post-operative discomfort and rapid recovery. Using an ultrasound to identify the vein, a fine tube is passed up the vein. Local anaesthetic injections are given along the line of the vein, before a laser fibre is inserted inside the tube in the vein. This is then pulled-back, sealing the vein from top to bottom. This treatment works by sealing the main varicose veins using infrared heat delivered by passing a laser fibre inside the vein. We use high-quality Platinum jacketed fibres shown to be the least painful option for your laser treatment. The treatment time can vary between 20 and 40 minutes.
