Radiofrequency Vein Ablation - Varicose Veins Treatment
Varicose veins are abnormally swollen, twisted or painful veins that have filled with blood. They often stick out or are blue in color and typically occur in the legs. Radiofrequency Vein Ablation is one of the many methods to treat varicose veins.
Ablation uses intense heat for varicose veins treatment. During these procedures, the surgeon will puncture the varicose vein and will thread a flexible tube (catheter) through the vein up to your groin. The catheter will then send intense heat to the vein. The heat will close off and destroy the vein. The vein will disappear over time.
