Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) Treatment Auckland NZ

Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is a varicose vein treatment which we no longer offer as it has been superseded by radiofrequency ablation (RFA). Radiofrequency ablation achieves the same long term outcomes as EVLA but with significantly shorter recovery times and minimal discomfort following the procedure. Discover why radiofrequency ablation is now the treatment of choice for varicose veins at Palm Clinic, Auckland.

What is Endovenus Laser Ablation?

Palm Clinic now uses Radiofrequency Ablation instead of Endovenous Laser Ablation to treat varicose veins.

Endovenous laser therapy uses a laser fibre which is inserted into the abnormal vein and passed up to the groin under ultrasound guidance. The varicose vein is surrounded by local anaesthetic. No general anaesthesia is required. The laser fibre is turned on and slowly withdrawn to effectively seal the varicose vein by delivering laser energy to the vein wall.
After the saphenous vein main trunk of the varicose vein has been treated with the laser, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy (UGS) is used to treat the smaller branch veins.
