Radio Frequency Ablation (Venefit)
The Venefit procedure treats larger varicose veins and is indicated for those patients who meet certain medical guidelines. Our procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, eliminating the need for a hospital visit. Radiofrequency (RF) energy is applied to the inside wall of the damaged vessel. As the RF energy is delivered the vein wall heats up, shrinks, and the closes down.
Venefit causes less bruising & pain than laser procedures. Patients who undergo this procedure resume normal activities quickly with excellent cosmetic and therapeutic results. Venefit is covered by most insurance plans & does not require Medicare pre-certification.
Endovenous Laser Procedure (EVLT or ELVeS)
The endovenous laser procedure (EVLT) is a non-surgical treatment option for varicose veins performed in our clinic in the past. In 2012, we determined that better results were always achieved by using the latest procedure Venefit. EVLT is still performed by many surgeons who do not have the Venefit available to them.
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose & spider veins. It is the “Gold Standard” for small to medium sized varicose veins in the lower extremeties.
In sclerotherapy, a chemical solution is injected into small or medium-sized veins near the skin surface causing them to become inflamed and eventually close. Sclerotherapy treatment often requires multiple injections per treatment Depending on the number & size of veins, several visits may be necessary before the veins disappear completely.
Small superficial spider veins are treated by the injection (with a very fine needle) of a sclerosing solution that causes them to fade over time. A sheer compression hose is prescribed to be worn for about a week after the procedure. No anesthesia is required for this simple office treatment. Sclerotherapy is generally considered a cosmetic procedure by insurance companies but fees are quite reasonable.
