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 and hemangiomas. 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 treatment.
