Endovenous Vein Ablation
This is one of the most modern and least invasive methods of treating varicose veins in the legs. Endovenous vein ablation treats damaged veins safely, with minimal surgery, and no downtime.
Your Treatment Experience
Endovenous vein ablation is an in-office treatment that takes about one hour. We use a topical anesthetic to numb the affected vein, so the procedure is painless. We make a tiny incision and insert a catheter into the affected vein, then use either laser or radiofrequency to seal the vein and disable it.
Typically, the incisions are small enough they don’t require sutures, just small bandages. Afterward, you may experience mild pain for 1-2 weeks, which you can treat with over-the-counter pain medication. You’ll be able to resume normal activity 1-2 days.
Endovenous vein ablation completely relieves the aching pain, skin discoloration, swelling, and inflammation some people experience with varicose veins in their legs. With endovenous vein ablation, treated veins are permanently disabled, but left in place to reduce recovery time. It is possible for new varicose veins to appear in other areas of your legs. However, we work to address the conditions that led to varicose veins to minimize the chance of ones appearing.
