What is VNUS® RF Ablation?
VNUS® RF ablation is a treatment for spider veins and varicose veins that relies on radio frequency energy to destroy the damaged veins. The treatment is a great alternative to vein stripping, a procedure that requires surgical incisions to directly remove veins. Patients who undergo vein stripping often have lengthy recoveries. With VNUS® RF ablation, the recovery is minimal, and you can return to your activities right away.
What Are the Benefits of VNUS® RF Ablation?
- Little to no downtime
- Minimally invasive
- Helps eliminate spider veins and varicose veins
What Should I Expect from My VNUS® RF Ablation Treatments?
Ultrasound is used to determine the location of the damaged vein. A tiny incision is made in the skin, and a small tube is fed through the opening. The tube is placed all the way into the vein. As the tube is slowly pulled out, radio frequency energy is administered to the walls of the vein. The energy damages the vein which causes your body to re-route blood. The vein is eventually absorbed by the body.
How Long Do the Results Last?
VNUS® RF ablation destroys the damaged vein. It is possible to develop spider veins and varicose veins in the neighboring veins.
