ENDOVENOUS LASER TREATMENT (EVLT) FOR VARICOSE VEINS
Dr. Parish has been performing EVLT since 2001 and was one of the first physicians in the country to pioneer EVLT.
EVLT (Endovenous Laser Treatment) – The no-surgery, no-scar way to treat varicose veins. The EVLT® procedure is simple and effective. It takes less than an hour at Parish Vein Laser Dermatology to eliminate varicose veins and get our patients back to their everyday activities right away. With a success rate of up to 98% and minimal side effects, EVLT® is the new gold standard in varicose vein treatment. Dr. Parish performs EVLT along with ambulatory phlebectomy for optimum cosmetic results.
A laser fiber is gently fired inside and along the length of your faulty, varicose vein. The laser energy damages the vein walls, shrinking them closed so that blood can no longer flow through.There are many veins in the leg and after treatment the blood in the faulty veins will be diverted to normal veins with functional valves. The resulting increase in circulation will significantly relieve symptoms and improve appearance.
EVLT® is commonly reimbursed by most insurance carriers. Parish Vein Laser Dermatology is a Blue Cross Blue Shield provider and will submit necessary documentation for insurance coverage for EVLT. Clinical data with up to 5 years of follow-up show success rates of 93-98%. Dr. Parish will go over all of the alternative treatments for varicose veins and will give you a treatment plan that best suits your needs.
