- Before & After
Biolitec, Inc.'s Endo Laser Vein System, or ELVeS, is a cost-effective, minimally-invasive vein treatment option for men and women suffering from unattractive, painful varicose veins. This non-surgical laser treatment provides immediate relief for varicose vein patients, including a reduction in the unsightly appearance of bulging veins, as well as minimizing or taking away the pain that is often associated with problem veins. In a single appointment, usually lasting less than one hour, patients can experience a significant reduction of, or complete relief from, symptoms related to varicose veins and can resume regular daily activities right after their appointment. ELVeS is an effective option for treating superficial reflux of the greater saphenous vein, and general venous incompetence, and allows patients to experience a non-scarring, non-surgical treatment that involves only minimal discomfort.
To conduct an ELVeS Endo Laser Vein System treatment, a vein specialist uses ultrasound imaging to determine the location of faulty veins. The specialist will then prepare for the procedure by using a local anesthetic for patient comfort prior to the insertion of a laser fiber into the venous system. Ultrasound is used to assist with fiber placement, followed by the delivery of laser energy to cause the problem veins to close.
Costs associated with receiving ELVeS treatments for varicose veins are generally much lower than surgical treatment options and can vary greatly depending on the provider's fees and geographical location. If this procedure is used to alleviate pain associated with varicose veins it is typically covered by insurance companies.
