Surgery involves considerable preparation including general anesthesia, the risk of infection, pain in the affected areas, and a lengthy recovery period. The medical laser technology used in Endovenous Laser Treatments eliminates all of that.
Laser procedures are minimally invasive, meaning that the entry point through which your physician gets the laser fiber to the target area is so small that it does not even require stitches after the procedure. Additionally, the risk of infection is much lower with laser procedures, and there is really no “recovery” to speak of. In fact, you’ll be up and walking as soon as it’s over, able to return to normal activity quickly.
