What is RFA vein closure?
RFA (radio frequency ablation) vein closure is a revolutionary approach that can help correct spider veins and varicose veins. This minimally invasive treatment utilizes radiofrequency energy rather than laser energy to gently heat up the wall inside the varicose veins. As the veins get warmer, it becomes damaged, resulting in scar tissue to form around it. This formation of scar tissue will help close off the veins, fading them from visibility through the skin.
What is the RFA vein closure process like?
Prior to treatment, a member of our staff will apply a local anesthesia at the treatment site for optimal patient comfort. At the start of treatment, a small incision will be made and a fine tube will be inserted into the varicose veins. Radiofrequency energy will be transmitted through the tube and into the veins, gently heating them up and closing them off. Once the treatment is finished, you will be provided with a compression stocking to be worn that will cover the treated area. Our medical staff suggests wearing this stocking for at least one week following your day of the procedure. To learn more about this process, contact us today!
