If you’ve ever suffered from varicose veins you know that not only are they unsightly, but they’re also uncomfortable. These bluish, swollen veins occur most often on the legs and are caused by veins that are too weak to pump blood back to the heart, causing it to pool. Patients suffering from varicose veins complain of aching, burning, and throbbing in the affected area.
Vein Ablation is the ideal treatment for patients suffering from this condition. During the out-patient procedure, a catheter is threaded into the affected vein and it is treated with either radiofrequency or laser. This causes the damaged vein to close up as blood is redirected through another path.
The Vein Ablation procedure is quick, low risk, and outpatient. Most patients can return home to recover the same day. Recovery from vein ablation is generally simple, and many patients resume normal activities within weeks of the procedure. Directly after, you can experience some swelling in the treatment area, it’s important to take some time to rest. Most people have great success from vein ablation and the results last many years.
