veins. It is simple, quick and extremely effective; its
objective is to heat the inside of the vein and cause to seal
shut and therefore, disappear.

(EVLT) can be performed under local anesthesia and
only takes 45 minutes for your legs to obtain a whole new
appearance. The recovery from this treatment is extremely
quick, and since it a very precise procedure, the risks of
scarring are minimal.

Before you submit yourself for surgical
treatment of your varicose veins, you need to be evaluated
by your vein specialist in order to make sure that all potential
issues have been brought to the surface. Patients should consider
surgical treatment when the veins commence to cause discomfort
and pain, and especially when self-help procedures have not
rendered any results.
Whenever it comes to cosmetic treatments, you need to keep
in mind that no procedure will ever provide an 'ideal' aspect
to your body. The aim of cosmetic
treatment is to achieve an improvement, to enhance your
appearance. This can help you boost your self-confidence and
make you feel better about yourself, while keeping realistic
expectations. This is one of the core values we have here
at Better Looks; we want our clients to be completely satisfied
with the results of their procedure and to heighten their
Before any type of procedure is
performed, patients at Better Looks are required to have a
detailed discussion with their doctor.
By doing so, both parties have the opportunity to contribute
in the whole process and to increase the client's level of
satisfaction. The patient must discuss his/her expectations
openly with their doctor, who will help determine what isn't
or what is possible to accomplish. All the different aspects
of the treatment you are willing to undertake (the cost and
recovery process) must be extremely clear to you.
will need to inform you doctor of any allergies you might
be prone to or if you have any serious medical conditions.
Make sure to ask your doctor concerning the diverse details
that the procedure entails. For example, you should know if
you should stop taking certain medications (eg: aspirin) or
if you will need to refrain from drinking or eating for a
certain time period before your treatment.
During this initial discussion, your
specialist will most likely mark the affected areas of your
legs with a black marker and will examine you to see if you
suffer from more serious circulatory problems. This will most
likely include a physical examination of the leg and an ultrasound
evaluation to map the veins which will be treated.
You will be giving instructions so
that you may prepare for the procedure properly and you might
need to refrain from applying moisturizer, oil or sun block
on your legs sometime before.

This technique requires for a thin
laser fiber to be inserted into the problematic vein. By using
an ultrasound machine, your doctor maps out the vein and then
applies the local anesthesia. Using a small needle at the
end of the vein, the fiber is inserted inside and advanced
until it reached the end. This laser fiber then heats the
inside of the vein and once the procedure is done, it is withdrawn
back down as it was inserted.
This procedure leaves no scars and
has minimal pain and discomfort prior to the operation. Your
recovery period will be extremely quick and you can expect
to resume normal activities the very next day, which means
that you do not need to wear any uncomfortable compression
stockings for long periods of time.
Better Looks recommends for you to resume walking right after
the procedure, so that any type of swelling you might experience
will be kept at bay. You can expect a small amount or bruising
and soreness, which can be addressed with non-prescribed pain
At the moment, scientific research
has not discovered any risks related to EVLT, since it is
a highly advanced procedure and uses the latest technology
in the industry. In precaution, you will be giving some special
goggles to wear during the treatment to protect your eyes
from an accidental firing of laser outside the body.
