Default Endovenous Laser Treatment

Very interesting article and seemingly innovative treatment. I am not sure if this is FDA approved, as the article is from a British website.

I know laser treatment for varicose veins has been around for a while now, is this EVLT (Endovenous Laser Treatment) drastically different? Of course it is a different type of laser, but from what I can gather, it works the same on varicose veins as the older lasers... or am I wrong?

Supposedly, the results are more dramatic. Maybe someone who has had it can fill us in???

Yes, hopefully an endovenous laser treatment patient will stumble upon this post and give us a review.

I'm always skeptical of new lasers because (in my opinion) there's seems to be more marketing than science behind them. When a new one is approved, they always say it's better than what's out there, but in reality it's no better, no worse.

"They" (the elusive they, always say newer is better, and it's always the same results, if not to a lesser degree, unfortunately.

Spider vein lasers hurt beyond belief! I had treatment on my thighs a few years back. It hurt so badly that I've held off on going again for the slight re-occurrence. When and if I do it again I will surely be put under. The Endovenous Laser any less painful?

Endovenous laser is supposedly equally painful. Wish I could tell you different info!

Laser treatments simplify the treatment process in no time. There are no immediate side effects like irritation though long-term effects are still subject to medical discussions.sell gold

Laser therapy and treatments for a variety of medical conditions is becoming more and more common as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approves the use of several brands of therapeutic lasers.kamagra uk
