Is the CoolTouch procedure performed under general anesthesia? 
No, the CoolTouch procedure for varicose veins only requires a local anesthetic.


Does the CoolTouch procedure hurt? 
You will feel very little pain, if any, during the procedure.


Will the CoolTouch procedure leave a scar? 
Since the procedure is minimally invasive, the access to the vein is so small it only requires a steri-strip or bandage after the procedure. 


When will my symptoms disappear? 
Your symptoms will begin to improve immediately after the CoolTouch CTEV procedure is completed. However, depending on the severity, some symptoms may take 1-2 weeks to completely disappear.


Aren’t all laser varicose vein procedures the same?
No, the CoolTouch laser is a 1320 nanometer wavelength, which has been found to be the most comfortable and effective laser treatment for varicose veins. The 1320 wavelength requires less heat to close the vein than other lasers do. In addition, some other laser wavelengths can actually rupture the vein causing significant pain, swelling and bruising. With the CoolTouch CTEV you will receive the best results available. You will experience minimal if any pain, bruising or post-op complications and the success rate is greater than 95%. 


When can I get back to my regular activities?
After your procedure your leg will be wrapped in a compression bandage and you will be up and walking the same day. You will be able to resume light routine activity the next day and athletic or strenuous activities within several days to a couple of weeks depending on your specific case.
