Endovenous Laser Treatment
The Endoveous laser delivers just the right wavelength of laser energy inside the vein to cause the incompetent vein to collapse and seal shut while your body automatically routes the blood to other healthy veins.
Both Endovenous laser and radiofrequency occlusion ablation procedures usually take less than an hour to complete in an office setting with local anesthetic. Following the procedure a bandage and compression hose is placed on the treated leg prior to going home. Both ablation procedures are FDA-approved.
Radiofrequency Occlusion (Closure-Fast Procedure)
The radiofrequency occlusion is a non-surgical treatment of the refluxing vein. A small catheter is inserted, through a needle stick in the skin, into the vein. The catheter delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein wall, causing heat. The vein then collapses and shuts.
