What is Endovenous Laser Treatment?

EVLA utilises laser energy to close and seal the afflicted veins from within. In general, EVLA is regarded as a safe and efficient treatment for varicose veins. It has several advantages over traditional vein stripping, including a shortened recovery period, minimal scarring, and a decreased risk of complications.
