Laser Varicose Vein Removal

Are Varicose Veins Keeping You from Living Life to the Fullest?

As one of Kansas City’s original outpatient vein treatment centers, Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz has performed over 12,000 successful vein treatments, many of which have focused on varicose veins. Bulging, knotty varicose veins aren’t only aesthetically problematic, but they can be painful, itchy, throbbing, or burning, and more importantly, can lead to significant complications down the road. You no longer have to live with them thanks to laser varicose vein removal treatments.

How Does Laser Varicose Vein Removal Work?

Dr. Schwartz employs the Sciton Pro-V Laser System for Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT ) or Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) to treat venous insufficiency – the cause of varicose veins. Thermal heat is delivered into the dysfunctional vein deep within the venous system via a laser fiber, placed through a tiny needle or catheter. The heat irritates the vein’s lining to seal the vein shut, form scar tissue, effectively blocking the vessel, and causing its collapse and absorption. EVLT provides fast symptom relief with less trauma to surrounding tissues, and there’s no scarring.

Am I a Good Candidate?

EVLT is a well-tolerated treatment. A thorough assessment of your vascular condition by Dr. Schwartz will help determine the best therapy for your varicose veins.

How Long Does the Treatment Take?

The procedure is performed in the comfort of the Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz office, under local anesthesia,  and takes between 30-60 minutes.

What Results Will I See?

The treated leg may experience mild bruising – usually along the thigh – that will typically resolve in 1-2 weeks.

Is There Any Downtime?

EVLA has minimal downtime. Patients will wear a post-op compression wrap for the 1st 36 hours, and are limited to normal, light activity around the house during that time. After 36 hours, normal work and activities are resumed, with strenuous activity or exercise in less than one week.
