Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Varicose vein treatment. Patient undergoing endovenous laser (EVL) treatment for varicose veins. The light from the laser can be seen shining through the patient's skin (red glow, upper centre). The laser has been inserted through a sheath (not seen), into the affected vein. It will be withdrawn down the vein at a set rate, heating it from within and effectively sealing it as it passes. EVL treatment is non-surgical and is performed as an outpatient procedure, using an ultrasound probe to help the doctor keep track of the position of the laser.
