A world leader in specialty fiber and fiber optic-based products for medical applications.
Venous reflux disease is a common condition. Up to 40% of women & 20% of men suffer from symptoms such as fatigue, pain & swelling of lower limbs. Primary causes include congenital connective tissue weakness, hormonal changes & long periods of standing & sitting. Impaired veins can be more than a cosmetic problem.
Left untreated, venous reflux disease can progress to skin changes, discoloration, inflammation & venous ulcer. Biolitec™ is a global pioneer in state-of-the-art medical laser technology. Biolitec has now introduced the ELVeS™ Painless Laser System – a versatile & easy to use system allowing for minimally invasive treatment of venous reflux disease.
Dual Wavelength Diode Laser
The biolitec® EVOLVE® DUAL laser system is the world’s first dual wavelength diode laser. The combined characteristics of the 980nm and 1470nm wavelengths result in a minimally invasive procedure with enhanced patient benefits such as quick recovery, local anesthesia, low risk of complications and minimal post-treatment side effects or discomfort.
The addition of the 1470nm wavelength results in maximum safety due to the increased affinity for water. This also allows for uniform vaporization of tissue similar to a TURP procedure, decreased energy per case with faster ablation rates and decreased post-operative symptoms.
The combination of the EVOLVE® DUAL and the new TWISTER™ fiber enables ablation rates of 2-3 grams per minute and can significantly reduce treatment time.
