EVLT painful? This treatment for varicose veins can be done without sedation, ivs, etc but typically a numbing solution is injected to "float" the vein in numbing medicine. Those injections are uncomfortable but it is rare for a patient who needs both legs treated to fail to come back for their second leg. I conclude, therefore, that while uncomfortable, most patients don't see this as too troublesome.
Very little pain. Endovenous laser treatment (evlt) is a minor, outpatient procedure that is performed with local anesthetic. It causes little pain, essentially no down time, is well tolerated, and has few complications.
Evlt. Very little discomfort.
EVLT. "EndoVenous Laser Treatment" or EVLT is a minimally invasive method of treating leg varicose veins using thermal energy from a laser fiber that is inserted into a faulty vein. It is typically performed in a doctors office by a vascular surgeon under local anesthesia. Associated w/ little discomfort (some injections with a small needle) & pain afterword tends to be mild & controlled with ibuprofen.
