Procedures & Services

Vein Treatments:


EVLT® uses targeted laser energy to close the vein shut and helps in making you look and feel better fast.

The EVLT® procedure is a minimally invasive laser procedure in treating varicose veins without scarring. The laser energy minimizes the vein walls, shrinking them and closing the faulty vein so that the blood cannot flow through it. After the treatment, the blood in the faulty veins will be diverted to the many normal veins in the leg.




Sclerotherapy is a treatment for the removal of spider veins and smaller varicose veins. Veins are injected with a sterile chemical sclerant, which irritates the vessel's lining, making it become inflamed, harden, and eventually fade away completely.
