An innovation in vein treatment, VNUS Closure is an effective solution for treating varicose veins. This minimally-invasive procedure uses radiofrequency technology to close affected veins so they disappear from view. Blood is rerouted through healthy veins in the area.
VNUS Closure is performed at Daniels Vein and Cosmetic Center as an outpatient procedure, using local anesthesia. Ultrasound imaging is used to locate and map the affected vein. A narrow catheter is then inserted into the vein, which delivers radiofrequency energy to seal the vein shut. Ultrasound is used once again at the end of the procedure, to confirm the vein is sealed completely.
Patients are able to return home immediately after VNUS Closure, and are instructed to walk for a number of days after to encourage healthy blood flow. Compression stockings are also prescribed to promote the healing process. Symptoms associated with varicose veins dissipate within a few days after treatment, and cosmetic results are seen within a matter of weeks.
VNUS Closure is one of the newest treatments for addressing painful, unsightly varicose veins. The procedure is minimally invasive and offers excellent results for most patients. For more information about VNUS Closure, contact Daniels Vein and Cosmetic Center today.
