Lasers remove varicose veins with light
Endovenous laser treatment is another alternative to surgical removal of varicose veins. In this procedure, the doctor inserts a catheter into your vein, after which a carefully guided laser is activated. The focused light pulses cause the vein to collapse and over time it disappears. The procedure takes between one to two hours, after which you will be able to walk out of the office. Your leg will be bandaged and you may wear a compression stocking for up to three weeks. At follow-up visits, you might be treated to remove nearby veins. Endovenous laser treatment has an excellent success rate and a low incidence of complications, which our doctors will discuss with you.

“My experience with Dr. Afshar and his practice could not have been more positive. I was treated with so much caring and respect. The wait time was minimal to none. All procedures were carried out with the utmost concern for my comfort and safety. Everyone was so nice, and Dr. Afshar is an absolutely exceptional physician. He is so kind to his patients, knowledgeable and highly skilled. I wish all of my doctors were like this, it is a standard that is not met by many. I have been spoiled!” ~ Suzanne F.
