Endovenous Thermal Ablation is Often the Best Way to Start Superficial Vein Treatment

Endovenous Thermal Ablation in San Antonio

This is the most common way to begin treatment of significant superficial vein disease that involves the great or small saphenous vein. This highly effective method of vein closure is done by inserting a laser fiber into the vein to be treated, surrounding the vein with a dilute local anesthesic and then slowly withdrawing the laser fiber. The fiber tip emits light energy into the vein wall and destroys the vein. The Cool Touch laser system is the most efficient laser system available. It requires about one half of the energy used by many other systems which leads to excellent, consistent results with minimal side effects.
