Yes, Endovenous Laser can be used to treat refluxing perforator veins. Insurance companies often times will not cover this treatment as they consider it to be experimental. However, in some cases doing an appeal with your insurance company can result in coverage.
If EVLT cannot be done due to location/size or insurance limitations, Sclerotherapy may also be a suitable treatment option.

Yes. The alternatives include phlebectomy to remove an adjacent varicose vein which may also remove the perforator; sclerotherapy; and radiofreqency ablation.

Yes, it is possible to do endovenous laser for perforators. However, not every perforator needs endovenous laser treatment. They can often be treated with the use of ultrasound-guided foam Sclerotherapy as well.

It is, but the use of it to treat perforators is highly selective and, at present, is mostly overused.
