Sometimes mistaken for laser vein treatments, radiofrequency (RF) energy treatments treat varicose veins through a process called ablation. At VeinSolutions Flint, we perform minimally invasive radiofrequency ablation right here in our office.
During veinous ablation, your surgeon will apply a device that generates energy to gently break down the diseased vein or veins. After a few days or a week, the damaged veins will start to disappear and become reabsorbed into your body. The body will then create new veins and capillaries to ensure there is healthy blood flow to your vital organs.
How Well Does Radiofrequency Vein Removal Work?
Radiofrequency vein removal has been used for over 20 years and has proven to be both safe and effective. Our patients report almost immediate improvements and relief from vein-related leg pain. Our facial spider vein patients report noticing results after a day or two after facial vein therapy. If you’re interested in another option for your vein treatments, our surgeons can recommend sclerotherapy and microphlebectomy treatments.
