Radiofrequency Vein Ablation
What is Radiofrequency Vein Ablation?
Radiofrequency vein ablation, also called thermal vein closure, is a minimally invasive in-office treatment. Virginia Advanced Medical offers to eliminate unhealthy veins. We use The ClosureFast™ procedure to perform radiofrequency vein ablation.
The ClosureFast system uses radiofrequency energy to heat and close the diseased vein. Your body then reroutes the blood flow through a healthy vein, improving your skin's appearance, and relieving your symptoms.
Schedule online. It's easy, fast and secure.
What Happens During Radiofrequency Vein Ablation Treatment?
Our licensed professionals will perform radiofrequency vein ablation in our office. To ease discomfort, they first administer a local anesthetic along your leg at the site of your diseased vein.
Using ultrasound-guided imaging, they will insert the ClosureFast catheter into your vein, where it releases heat, which causes the vein walls to collapse and close.
With radiofrequency vein ablation, you can expect less pain and bruising than laser treatment, along with a faster recovery. You'll need to use compression stockings for no longer than a week.
More than 2 million people in over 100 countries have found relief from their diseased veins with the ClosureFast procedure. To schedule your consultation, contact Virginia Advanced Medical, by phone or through the online booking tool today.
