“Get your varicose veins treated during lunch time – without surgery !”
Echotheray is a revolutionary new way to treat varicose veins without surgery, general anesthesia, or any kind of incision. Using HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound), echotherapy destroys varicose veins from outside the body – with therapeutic ultrasound.
In the 1990s, endovenous surgery revolutionized varicose vein treatments which up to then where performed mostly by surgical stripping. Using radiofrequency and then laser, long, wire-like catheters were passed up the patient’s veins to destroy them using heat. For many years, this has been the gold standard way of treating veins.
Today, as medicine progresses, we enter a new aera: Echotherapy is the first totally non-invasive technique to thermally ablate varicose veins and the only way of treating varicose veins without scalpels, chemical sclerosant injections or insertion of wire-like catheters into the vein. The therapeutic ultrasound simply passes through the skin and is concentrated on the varicose vein where its thermal action will close the vein. It works like laser or radiofrequency treatments, but there is no intrusion into the body. Therefore, you will not be treated in an operation theater but in a normal physician office.
The patient is comfortably placed on a bed-like treatment table and then the echotherapy robot’s head is placed on the patient’s leg. Your physician will then identify the diseased veins and focus the therapeutic ultrasound beam on these veins. As the treatment is non-invasive you can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment and no scars will be left on your legs.
