The procedure seals the diseased vein through heat provided by a laser. The laser is carried by a tiny catheter into the problematic vein. Because the insertion area is treated with a local anesthetic most patients do not experience any discomfort.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
The New York Vein Treatment Center is launching a new campaign about Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT). The New York City-based vein center describes EVLT as a safe, effective, and virtually pain-free minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins. The center hopes that a better understanding of the procedure will encourage the public to be proactive in pursuing varicose vein treatment.
Dr. Lev Khitin, a leading vein doctor at the New York Vein Treatment Center, explains that EVLT requires no surgical incisions, general anesthesia, or lengthy recovery periods. “The procedure seals the diseased vein through heat provided by a laser. The laser is carried by a tiny catheter into the problematic vein. Because the insertion area is treated with a local anesthetic most patients do not experience any discomfort.”
EVLT is an effective way to eliminate unsightly varicose veins and reduce the risk of more serious complications. The New York Vein Treatment Center will be providing information on this form of treatment through its social media outlets, including Facebook and Twitter. Interested readers can learn more about the topic throughout the month of August.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.
Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy and other forms of injections, different forms of endovenous ablation, phlebectomy, phlebotomy and many others.
