Vein AblationA reliable treatment for varicose veins
Vein ablation uses radio frequency to completely remove varicose and spider veins. A catheter enters the vein thru a tiny cut in the skin and is pushed in to the end of the vein. As the catheter is pulled back out, a radio frequency is activated. This frequency causes the vein to collapse and eventually to be absorbed by the body. Vein ablation takes about an hour to complete and causes no scarring and little or no pain. Some patients experience an immediate relief of their symptoms.
30 million people have symptomatic varicose vein disease.
Leg pain, throbbing and heaviness are good indicators that you should see a specialist.
Why Should I Get Treatment?
Damage or disease in leg vein valves can lead to a variety of problems, like varicose veins. Varicose veins can be painful, and may indicate a more serious condition: venous reflux disease, also known as chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). The chief characteristic of this condition is that the valves in the legs become damaged or diseased.

When venous reflux disease is left untreated, vein valves eventually do not close properly. This is what can cause varicose veins, and a number of other problems:
- Leg pain, cramping
- Leg or ankle swelling
- Leg heaviness or fatigue
- Skin changes
- Ulcers, sores, open wounds
