What is EVLT? This ultrasound-guided technique used for treating varicose veins uses laser energy. During an EVLT procedure a tiny (less than 1mm) laser fiber is inserted into the vein followed by an application of laser energy to heat and close the malfunctioning veins. EVLT usually takes 15 to 20 minutes. At Metro Pain and Vein Centers EVLT is considered a lunchtime procedure, and most of our patients resume normal activities immediately after the treatment.
