Radiofrequency procedure to eliminate varicose veins
The varicose veins and Painful Spider Veins are one of the aesthetic problems that bring head over to our patients. This pathology affects women more than men, to the point that specialists, in practice, ensure that for every 10 women who suffer varicose veins, only 1 man suffers.
The varices are affected veins causing them to dilate and increase in size, causing visible through the skin. In addition, these symptoms are accompanied by others such as heaviness in the legs and a feeling of swollen legs and even cramps, especially at night.
On the other hand, spider veins are often confused with varicose veins, but they are smaller and not usually accompanied by pain, unlike varicose veins.
Many women take advantage of autumn and winter for Varicose Veins Cure since it is the best time to do it, by not exposing our legs and avoiding the effects of solar rays, which can alter the result.
The intervention of ablation with intravenous radiofrequency uses an RFG generator (Best Treatment for Spider Veins) and a Closure Fast catheter, a device that improves the efficiency and reduces the ablation time of the previous option.
The radiofrequency Varicose Vein Removal procedure is totally eco-assisted. Prior to the intervention, you must make an eco-Doppler mark from the groin to the ankle to mark the stretches with complications.
The Varicose Veins Remedy requires the use of tumescent local anaesthesia, that is, by means of the eco-guided Varicose Vein Injections of the Klein solution at the perivenous level. It is carried out with anaesthesia with a triple purpose:
- Protects the skin and nearby structures against the heat of radio frequency
- Favour the collapse of the veins
Access to the varicose vein (Skin Discoloration Disease) to treat can be surgical through a small incision or percutaneously using the Salinger technique.
How To Remove Varicose Veins
- Ablation is generally free of complications and safe.
- Most veins treated are effectively invisible even by ultrasound 12 months after the procedure.
- Most patients have immediate symptomatic relief and can return to normal activities within one or two days with little or no pain.
At the end of the intervention, the algologist should follow the ultrasound of the treated area, as well as a control with Eco-Doppler in the first days after the treatment to rule out possible complications.
Radiofrequency, the best treatment for varicose veins
VNUS Closure FAST intravenous radiofrequency ablation is currently a technique that has been shown to be safe and effective in the elimination of varicose veins, with high patient satisfaction. With a faster recovery time, it allows incorporating before the normal routine and does not present bruises or pains.
Radiofrequency has demonstrated its superiority over previous treatments, as well as the endolaser, the other most common option of minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins.
Complications such as venous thrombosis, skin burns and neuritis with this technique are very infrequent. Even so, to prevent them the patient should be put in the hands of an angiologist with experience in techniques such as infiltration of tumescent anesthesia or eco-Döppler, which is essential for an optimal procedure and proper follow-up of the patient after treatment.
