Jena, 17.04.2024 – The warm season is just around the corner again. Varicose veins can hardly be concealed with light, spring-like clothing. However, varicose veins are not just about beauty. Because if left untreated, there are health risks. If you suspect you have varicose veins, you should therefore play it safe in good time. With the doctor finder at, you can easily find out which doctor in your area offers the proven minimally invasive ELVeS laser therapy from biolitec, one of the world’s leading medical technology companies for laser applications. In addition, experts explain the function of minimally invasive laser treatment of varicose veins, doctors report on their experiences with ELVeS in practice and you can carry out a vein check yourself online. Thanks to modern minimally invasive treatment options, the diagnosis of varicose veins needs no longer be a cause for concern.

Nevertheless, varicose veins must be treated. Symptoms include bluish, nodular veins under the skin, heavy legs, a feeling of tightness and swollen legs, itching in the legs, brown discoloration of the skin on the legs and inflamed areas of skin on the leg. If left untreated, this can lead to eczema, open legs, thrombosis, inflammation and even bleeding. The risk of thrombosis increases especially during periods of summer heat. Anyone suffering from venous disorders such as varicose veins will quickly notice restrictions in the heat due to feelings of heaviness in the legs or swelling. This is because the body dilates the vessels in the limbs to ensure natural cooling. The blood collects in the legs, but in people with venous insufficiency or varicose veins, it cannot usually be pumped back up out of the legs completely. This leads to the symptoms mentioned.

A visit to a specialist is then recommended at the latest. The treatment of varicose veins with laser therapies, for example with the ELVeS procedure from biolitec, is now also possible on an outpatient basis and without general anesthesia. A short local anesthetic is usually sufficient. The laser fiber is inserted into the diseased vein via a small puncture without any incisions. The varicose vein is closed or obliterated from the inside by laser light without affecting the surrounding tissue. Even highly tortuous veins can be sclerosed with the ELVeS Radial 2ring Pro fiber from biolitec with minimal pain – with excellent aesthetic results. Swelling and bruising are usually minimal after minimally invasive ELVeS therapy, meaning that patients can leave the specialist practice quickly and return to their usual activities. This means that patients who decide at short notice do not miss out on the good weather because of long hospital stays. Numerous doctors throughout Germany work with ELVeS therapy from biolitec.
