Blue veins around the eyes are best treated with a 1064nm yag laser which seals the veins from the outside. This should only be performed by an experienced practitioner or doctor. We prefer not to inject, but there are experienced doctors who can do this.

An ablation cannot treat facial veins. These are best treated by a topical laser, sclerotherapy, IPL or micro needle RF.

I occasionally have pain in my hands. I noticed one vein in particular is dark purple and appears to be purple to other people. But one vein next to it looks fine. I'm kinda worried but nor sure I should be. Do I have anything to worry about?

I have previously had sclerotherapy for my veins with excellent results. Now, a doctor, said my valve is problematic so the Laser should be used. I guess I'm a little nervous about the procedure.

Most you tube videos I have watched show only thigh veins being tackled by EVLT. No videos show leg veins or tortuous veins. Does this mean, it is difficult to use lasers in these situations?

I'm confused. Is ELVeS the same thing as EVLT and Endovenous Laser Ablation? They all sound kind of the same in terms of how the procedure is performed.

Does Veinwave cause more tiny veins in the same area? There's a group of them that I think popped up because the others were closed. The nurse told me it could take up to 6-8 weeks...I'm worried.

Could the ELVeS procedure be performed on varicose veins in the lower leg? I realize that the endovenous laser treatment cannot be used for the lower leg and I was wondering if ELVeS could be an alternative for me. Thank you.

I regret having this procedure done, as I look much worse than before. The nerve is damaged at the incision site of the laser treatment and this extends to the leg and foot, making sleep difficult. It is also pin prickly during the day, and borderline painful. I am experiencing heart palpitations as well. Could the vagus nerve be affected? Is this life threatening? What should I do?
