Varicose veins can negatively affect the appearance and are sometimes painful. You may find it difficult or embarrassing to wear shorts, skirts, and dresses. You also may need to sit down frequently to relieve discomfort in your legs. Rather than subject yourself to the challenge and embarrassment that comes from having varicose veins, you may prefer to get rid of them entirely. You may achieve the cosmetic results you want by undergoing a simple vein ablation procedure.
What is Vein Ablation?
Vein ablation is a minimally-invasive procedure that is done on an outpatient basis in the comfort of our office. It reduces or eliminates the size and appearance of varicose veins in your legs.
Vein ablation is available in different types of procedures. The first type, laser ablation, utilizes laser or heat to diminish the size and appearance of varicose veins. The second type is called radiofrequency ablation and uses radiofrequency energy and heat to treat varicose veins.
The type of ablation that you undergo depends on the size and prominence of the varicose veins in your legs. Our specialist will recommend the best vein ablation procedure for you during a consultation at our office.
How is Vein Ablation Done?
Vein ablation is minimally-invasive and relatively simple. During the treatment, our medical professional uses a thin catheter to introduce the vein to the energy. This seals off and controls the flow of blood so that the varicose vein becomes smaller and less noticeable. In the weeks and months following the procedure, the problematic vein will gradually disappear from view.
Your recovery should be relatively short, and you should be able to resume normal walking in just hours. In fact, you may even be told to walk for a certain amount of time each day until you are fully healed. This is because walking prevents complications.
