What to expect with the VenaCure EVLT procedure


• Your doctor uses ultrasound to map out your vein
• Local anesthetic is applied
• A thin laser fiber is inserted through a tiny entry point
• Laser energy is delivered to seal the faulty vein
• Walking immediately after the procedure is encouraged; normal daily activity can be resumed, just avoid rigorous activities such as gym workouts
• There may be minor soreness and bruising two–fivedays after the procedure; any discomfort can be treated with over-the-counter, non-aspirin pain relievers as necessary
