EVLA (Endovenous Laser Ablation), also known as Laser Varicose Vein removal, has raised the bar in terms of treatment standards, clearly emerging as a better option than traditional vein stripping surgery for 3 key reasons:
- Long term results for this difficult condition are significantly better with laser than traditional surgery.
- The convenience of ‘walk in, walk out’ treatment within a day and no hospital stay appeals strongly to anybody who has work or family commitments, as traditional vein stripping surgery involves several nights stay in hospital and 2-3 weeks of recovery at home in surgical stockings.
- The laser varicose vein procedure is carried out using local anaesthetic and takes around an hour to complete per leg, delivering instantly visible results.
Cosmedics’ founder, Medical Director and Aesthetic Doctor, Dr Ross Perry MBBS explains:
“EVLA treatment has been shown to deliver a permanent success rate of 95.4%, which is significantly higher than the traditional vein stripping method which has a 75.7% success rate after 5 years.”
“That’s why EVLA is considered the Gold Standard of treatment for varicose veins by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) whose guidelines outlined that stripping should no longer be considered except in exceptional circumstances as Laser Thermal Ablation is a far more effective and safe method.”
“Even as a cosmetic procedure, EVLA can be life-changing, but for many patients it is much more than a cosmetic issue. It is estimated that over 40% of patients experience discomfort as a result of varicose veins with aching, painful legs and throbbing, bulging veins.”
“EVLA is an incredible treatment for those suffering with varicose veins and our patients have been delighted with the results.”
Cosmedics’ London Vein Treatment Centre provides EVLA and varicose vein removal treatments in conjunction with a top vascular surgeon.
