Why Do We Use EVLT at Vein Care Melbourne

EVLT varicose veins laser therapy is offered as an alternative to traditional surgical vein “stripping” procedures, with the advantages of being more effective and less painful with minimal downtime.

EVLT utilises both ultrasound and laser technology to optimise varicose veins treatment, making it one of the most technologically advanced treatments available at Vein Care. After all, it’s suitable in both the summer and winter, and unlike traditional surgical vein stripping, you can be up walking right away.

EVLT Procedure – What to Expect

To ensure patient comfort, local anaesthetic is used for the affected area during EVLT varicose veins laser treatment. After anaesthetic is applied, ultrasound guidance is used to insert a laser fibre into the abnormal vein. The laser is then activated, and the fibre is drawn through the length of the vein, causing it to seal. Adjacent abnormal veins are typically treated with ultrasound guided sclerotherapy or ambulatory phlebectomy.

The total treatment time takes approximately 1.5 hours and after treatment, compression stockings are required to speed up the recovery process.

Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) Recovery 

Thanks to the compression stockings and local anaesthetic, there is very minimal discomfort with endovenous laser treatment for varicose veins, both during the procedure and throughout the recovery period. Patients can go home right away and just need to keep bandages on for the next 48 hours. 30 minutes of walking a day also ensures proper recovery from this low-risk procedure, with the lone possible side effects being bruising and minor discomfort.

Plus, the success rate for EVLT over a 3-5-year period is approximately 90 percent, which makes it a highly recommended option for our patients who need fast, effective laser therapy for varicose veins with minimal recovery.

Is Endovenous Laser Treatment Suitable for You?

Endovenous laser treatment is a relatively new treatment option for varicose vein management, but it is not appropriate for all cases. To determine your suitability for EVLT treatment, it is required that you discuss this option with our expert medical staff during a consultation.

Your vein doctor will help relieve any worries by going through each step of the laser treatment, which also includes aftercare management so you can get back to your everyday life as soon as possible.

Having my varicose veins was something I had thought about for a while but was hesitant. After my initial consult with Dr Dhillon, all my fears and doubts were put to rest.Dr Dhillon thoroughly explained all the procedures and answered my questions , so much so that I booked my procedures the very next day. Over the next few months Jo and Dr Dhillon really took care of me.Dr Dhillon explained everything he was doing at the time and always ensured that I was comfortable with the procedure. The results have certainly exceeded my expectations and not having bulging varicose veins on the back of my leg has certainly made me more comfortable wearing dresses. I cannot recommend Dr Dhillon highly enough, a very talented, personable and humble man.

Excellent to the highest standard ! I would have to go back in time 25 years since my legs looked this good, all the bubbly varicose veins gone. Everything is explained and costed beforehand, this removed all the anxiety before I underwent surgery. After every surgical procedure a review was carried out a week or so later. There's quite a number of appointments involved to cover everything on both legs but the appointment schedule has a degree of flexibility. It's a bit of a journey at the start but you'll be glad you stayed the journey to the end when you see the results.

I had bad varicose veins in my legs and decided after 20 odd years to do something about it. I did my research found Dr Dhillion on line and saw the amount of years he had been practising in this type of treatment. I booked a consultation with him and he took me through the process of what to expect. Over the next six months i had three types of treatment and the results are just amazing. No more self conscious moments when summer arrived and my legs don't ache or itch anymore. I cannot thank Dr Dhillion enough and highly recommend him to anyone who wants to get rid of varicose veins and feel so much better about themselves, i do. Thank you Dr Dhillion for everything you have done for me and for fixing my legs. Special mention to Jo and Abbie on reception who were always kind and helpful with any appointments and queries i had. Thank you all 🙂
