Pro-V Treatment with the Sciton Joule™ Laser
Treatment with the Pro-V Sciton Joule laser is a safe, fast and effective solution for treating venous insufficiency and is often performed on an outpatient basis. Under local anesthesia, a fiber is inserted in the vein and the heat generated by the absorption of laser energy closes the incompetent vein. The 1319 nm wavelength targets water in the blood, which captures heat in the vein and, since treatment temperatures are lower and injury to surrounding tissue is minimized, patient satisfaction is significantly higher compared to other hotter modalities.

Varicose veins, along with edema, skin changes, dermatitis and venous ulcers, are typically caused by incompetent valves in the greater saphenous vein (GSV). Healthy valves in the veins stop the backflow of blood between heartbeats. When these valves are damaged, the blood leaks and pools in the legs and feet. This venous insufficiency puts significant pressure on the veins, causing them to bulge into varicose veins or resulting in the other symptoms associated with venous reflux disease.
