Lucere’s Evla Laser Vein Treatment
Endo Venous Laser Ablation (EVLA) is a highly effective, minimally invasive laser treatment for varicose veins. This treatment is much gentler than more invasive treatments, such as surgery or vein stripping. This method is the most advanced treatment for symptomatic and bulging varicose veins. It uses 1470nm energy and expert techniques to coagulate the targeted vessel with minimal impact on surrounding tissue or skin.
Upon activating the laser, the heat tip essentially produces a reaction in the walls of the vein, which causes them to collapse. Blood reroutes through deeper circulation, causing the varicosities associated with the vein to disappear.
This treatment has high efficacy with low complication rates. As opposed to more invasive and surgical procedures, EVLA has speedier recovery rates and fewer complications overall.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Lucere’s EVLA Vein Treatment?
Lucere’s EVLA treatment works to effectively treat varicose veins in a minimally invasive way. This treatment requires no hospitalization or surgery like other methods, such as vein stripping. EVLA Laser treatment permanently collapses large and poorly functioning leg veins with a 95% initial success rate. This method is the most advanced treatment for symptomatic and bulging varicose veins. This treatment uses 1470nm energy and expert techniques to coagulate the targeted vessel with minimal impact on surrounding tissue or skin.
How does Lucere’s EVLA Vein Treatment work?
The treatment begins with carefully inserting a laser fibre very precisely into the damaged vein. This is done using ultrasound guidance. You will then be injected with an anaesthetic (freezing) around the entire area surrounding the vein. We then deliver laser energy to the targeted vein as the specialized laser fibre is pulled out. This process essentially collapses the vein and seals it. A surgical incision is not required.
The treatment itself is completed in under an hour and then we apply a compression stocking. You may then resume light activities, and most of our patients are able to return to work within 24-48 hours post treatment. We do see a very high success rate with EVLA Vein treatments.
How soon will I see results after my EVLA treatment?
It is common for clients to notice a difference in the appearance of their veins about one week post treatment. However, it will take at least a month, if not more, to see the complete result of this treatment. Some clients require several complementary vein treatments to improve the results.
Who should be performing my EVLA Vein Treatment?
The EVLA Laser Vein treatment should only be performed by medical professionals. At Lucere, our team is led by an experienced physician and a Nurse Practitioner injector.
What areas of the body can be treated?
At Lucere, we currently offer Endo Venous Laser Ablation treatments for the legs.
How many treatments do I need and how long do the results last?
Varicose veins can be treated, but do not have a cure because it is a genetic condition. Success rate is high, however, and there are other options to complement your treatment, including Sclerotherapy and/or Phlebectomy.
How much does Lucere’s EVLA Vein Treatment cost?
Lucere’s EVLA Vein treatments costs $3,000 and includes the Endo Venous Laser Ablation (EVLA) treatment and up to three Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS) treatments every 3 months for one year.
Does the EVLA Vein treatment hurt?
There is very minimal discomfort associated with this treatment. There is no more than a simple injection with the laser fiber being about 400 microns (less than half a centimetre). Post treatment, there is little downtime and patients can return to normal activities within 24-48 hours.
