Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) performed by Dr Bokhabrine Khalil at Clinique Toulal with the support of our partner Medaf. This minimally invasive procedure has a shorter recovery time and longer-lasting results with minimal to no downtime.
EVLT | Laser technology have been recognized by Scientific boarders as one of the most valid tools used in phlebology. RAPIDO MED Laser provides a faster, safe and less invasive procedure compared to traditional methods. These kinds of operations, named Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT), are medical procedures that use laser light to treat damaged veins. The treatment requires the insertion of a thin fiber into the target vein, through cannulas, under local anesthesia. The energy delivered through the fiber causes the collapse and consequent closure of the affected vein, while the blood which flowed through the non-working channel will be redirected to healthy veins, improving circulation. Usually, no pain or just a little discomfort as sensitivity, tingling or tightness is related to Endovenous Laser procedures, with quick recovery time and no recurrence. Sometimes, the procedure may require more than one session, depending on the number and size of the veins.
These procedures represent a new and minimally invasive therapeutic option to treat varicose veins providing an effective alternative to conventional operations. Laser energy is administered either in a pulsed or continuous mode with a constant pullback of the laser fiber.
