What Is CTEV Laser Vein Treatment?

spider vein specialists san diegoThe CoolTouch CTEV, a device that Dr. Goldman helped develop, is a minimally invasive way to get rid of unsightly varicose veins in the leg. This laser treatment utilizes an endovenous ablation method using a special laser fiber paired with an infrared 1320 nm wavelength device. The CTEV treatment removes the need for surgical vein removal by targeting water in the walls of the vein, allowing the vein to be completely absorbed and eliminated. This innovative laser treatment is ideal for patients who want long-lasting results to treat varicose veins in the calf, thigh, or knee area that are less than one inch wide.
