CoolTouch continued to set new standards in the industry with the launch of CoolTouch CTEV
in 2004 for varicose vein treatment and with CoolLipo for laser lipolysis and skin tightening in 2007.
The CoolTouch CTEV laser system received approval in late 2004 from the U.
With the CoolTouch CTEV, a small single needle incision is made in the leg and a fiber is inserted into the varicose vein.
Preliminary studies have proven the CTEV as an effective method to treat tributaries; the FDA approval confirms it is a safe and effective method of treatment.
Robert Weiss, associate clinical professor of dermatology at John Hopkins University School of Medicine, recently conducted a preliminary study to determine the efficacy of the CTEV laser for treatment of the tributary vein.

endovenous laser procedure are extremely satisfied with the overall procedural experience.
With this recent FDA clearance, the CoolTouch CTEV can treat a wider range of varicose veins, including both the GSV and SSV.
The CoolTouch CTEV non-surgical treatment for varicose veins has been available to the public for almost a year now, and we have had tremendous success in treating reflux of the GSV and helping patients rid themselves from unsightly and painful varicose veins.

Without the difficulties of processing claims without a dedicated code, CTEV 1320 nm endovenous laser will now have assured growth as the preferred endovenous treatment of varicose veins.
