Can it be treated with the laser?

Is it a safe procedure?
Yes, the Eufoton endovenous laser can replace the saphenous vein stripping (surgical stripping) and is also performed on minor veins (collateral, perforator, reticular and telangiectasias) in complete safety.
What is the endovascular laser?
The treatment includes:
The introduction of the laser fiber inside the vein through the injection of a small needle
The exact position of the laser is found via the light beam emitted by the laser
The effect of the laser causes the vein to wrinkle and disappear immediately
The limb is in an elastic compression stocking and mobilised as soon as possible.
How long does the treatment last?
Around 20-30 minutes.
Is it painful?
No, because it is performed under local anaesthesia or, at the request of the patient, with mild sedation.
How long must you rest?
After the procedure, it is recommended to immediately walk about to activate the foot pumps; intense sport is not recommended for at least 15 days.
What are the advantages of the endovenous laser?
Possibility of performing at an outpatient surgery and not needing to be in an operating room
No bleeding and scars
Preserved social and occupational functioning
