Radiofrequency VNUS Closure®
VeinSolutions™ currently utilizes the radiofrequency VNUS Closure®
procedure. This procedure is a minimally invasive treatment alternative
for patients with a condition known as superficial venous reflux, which
often results in varicose veins and other painful symptoms.
Approximately 25 million people suffer from venous reflux. It’s is the
treatment of choice to traditional vein stripping surgery.
The Closure procedure is an outpatient treatment performed in the
outpatient department of the hospital, or surgical center. Local,
regional, or general anesthesia may be used during the procedure. A thin
catheter is inserted into the damaged vein through a small opening. The
catheter delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to the vein wall, causing
it to heat, collapse and seal shut. Once the diseased vein is closed,
other healthy veins take over and empty blood from the legs. As normal
return flow is re-established, your symptoms should improve noticeably.
Following the procedure, the catheter is removed, a compression bandage
placed over the insertion site and your leg to aid healing. Recovery
time varies, but most patients are walking the same day and return to
work within three to five days.
Sclerotherapy is an injection treatment used to eliminate spider
veins and reticular veins. These treatments are considered cosmetic and
are not a covered benefit through your insurance provider. Patients can
resume normal activities immediately after treatment. All of the
sclerotherapy solutions are FDA approved, safe, effective and virtually
pain-free. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired
outcome. Plan to schedule your treatment sessions four to six weeks
apart, so it may take several months to achieve your optimal results.
Without needles or incisions, laser/light therapy treats facial
spider veins, rosacea, and vascular birthmarks such as port wine stains
Successful treatment of facial lesions may be
accomplished with as little as one treatment but usually requires two to
three treatments. The number of treatments needed to successfully treat
vascular birthmarks varies depending on their size and density. The
treatment is tolerated by most people with minmal discomfort. Patient
preparation requires the area being treated be without sun exposure or
the use of sunless tanning products for four weeks before and after each
