Beverly Hills 6750 Multi-Specialty Aesthetic Institute now introduces its comprehensive approach to the treatment of varicose veins and the pioneering use of the BH Veno-Laser Procedure to address problematic varicose veins — generally appearing as twisting, bulging rope-like cords on the legs, anywhere from the groin to the ankle.
It all starts with a vascular ultrasound to assess the valve competence of the larger veins. It’s important to understand that if the valves are incompetent, no amount of superficial treatments (e.g. sclerotherapy, laser pencil treatments) will provide a long-lasting solution to varicose veins. In this situation, what is required is a technique of obliterating the segment of veins with valve incompetence. Traditionally, this was done surgically — the so-called “vein-stripping” that resulted in multiple disfiguring skin incisions along the course of the vein.
The BH Veno-Laser Procedure is a technique where a laser fiber is inserted via a needle puncture inside the vein — the so-called endovenous approach — and laser energy is fired along and inside the varicose vein. The energy from the laser damages the vein walls, shrinking them closed to prevent blood from flowing through. This technique is also called Endovenous Laser Treatment (ELVT)
