What is radiofrequency ablation?
Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive treatment option we offer to treat unwanted or discomforting varicose veins. Rather than using laser energy, this specialized procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat and alter the wall within the vein, causing the vein to close off and the blood to be rerouted to other veins. The treated varicose veins will then form into scar tissue. Over time, the body will process this scar tissue, resulting in the once varicose veins to fade.
What can I expect from the radiofrequency process?
At the start of your treatment, a local anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area to ensure patient comfort. A fine, thin tube called a catheter will be administered through a tiny incision into the vein. Radiofrequency energy will then be delivered into the vein through the catheter. Patients may feel a gentle warming sensation at the site of treatment. To learn more about what you can expect from this leading-edge procedure, meet with our medical personnel today.
What is recovery like after radiofrequency ablation?
Patients will be able to walk after their treatment session. Precisely how long recovery will take varies from person to person. However, the recovery period is typically very short. In the week or so following your radiofrequency ablation procedure, our medical personnel will advise that you wear a compression stocking to protect the treated area. We will have you schedule a follow-up appointment to check on the progress of your healing.
