Vein Treatment: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) For Varicose.

Posted By Fred Burton     October 28, 2021    


Are you aware of the fact that sixty percent of leg ulcers are caused by varicose veins? Some people do not consider it a serious health concern. They want to eliminate them due to cosmetic reasons. With time they can cause serious medical issues. It has been observed that about fifty percent of people with inflammation tend to have leg ulcers.  


Luckily, there are lots of treatments that involve several nonsurgical options but RFA is considered the best one. 


Radiofrequency ablation (RFA):


It is a minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins. Ablation refers to the process in which a doctor uses heat energy to damage a diseased tissue and convert it into scar form. This scar tissue closes the vein eventually. This method is based on radiofrequency energy to transmit directly into the diseased tissue in order to maintain a healthy blood flow. This process seals the varicose veins in the legs. 




In order to deal with varicose veins, your vein doctor inserts a thin tube known as a catheter. This method can be used to treat large veins in the leg. This method is performed at a doctor’s office under the administration of local anesthesia or a mild sedative. The treatment time and recovery period are short. 


After the treatment, you will be recommended to wear compression stockings for a minimum of a week or more. In order to monitor your recovery status, the doctor will use a duplex ultrasound so that he/she can be sure that the vein is closed.  


Is this procedure safe?


The patients may experience some side effects after the procedure, including:


  • The patients may feel burning sensations after recovery. 
  • Some patients notice blood clotting over the treated area.  
  • Prickling sensation


The following side effects might disappear on their own, if not consult your doctor

Get the following vein treatment only from a vein specialist to reduce the possibilities of severe side effects.  

How well does it work?


The results of  RFA are effective. Sometimes, you may need more than one RFA treatment when the diseased veins do not close properly. 


Varicose Veins: Do you require a Surgical Procedure?


If you have decided to undergo RFA, inquire about the treatment from your doctor including the size of the treatment, recovery time, treatment cost, and many more.  RFA is a great alternative to surgical treatment.


Benefits Of RFA:


Fast and safe:


RFA (Radio Frequency Ablation) is the procedure that can be completed in about thirty-five to forty minutes to perform. Since it is a non-surgical procedure, therefore, eliminates the risks after the surgery. 


Minimally invasive:


The doctor makes an incision of ¼ inch for transmitting heat energy through it. The following treatment can treat the vein of about thirty inches. 


Little to no pain:


Since the doctor administers local anesthesia during the procedure, you may not experience the pain. After the treatment, you might experience slight pain or no pain at all. 


Minimal bruising:


This procedure does not cause as much bruising and swelling as other surgical procedures can cause. Signs of mild bruising or swelling may last no more than ten to fourteen days. 


You should opt for any vein treatment only after the consultation of a vein specialist.
