Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLT)
Dr. Krikorian offers patients in the St. Louis, St. Charles, Chesterfield and surrounding areas of Missouri with endovenous laser ablation.
Endovenous laser ablation, also known as EVLT, is a recent FDA approved procedure that has been shown to have a 98% success rate on the treatment of varicose veins. Dr. Krikorian has extensive experience helping patients in the St. Louis, St. Charles and Chesterfield areas eliminate painful and unsightly varicose veins in their legs and ankles with EVLT.
How is Endovenous Laser Ablation Performed in St. Louis?
EVLT is a treatment used specifically for the deep varicose veins. A local anesthesia will be used to numb the leg, and with the guide of an ultrasound Dr. Krikorian will insert a laser fiber into the abnormal vein. When the laser is activated, the abnormal vein will seal and be absorbed into the body.
The entire procedure takes approximately an hour, and there is little to no downtime. Similarly to other procedures, Dr. Krikorian will ask you do a lot of walking and wear compression stockings to aid the process.
