Common Types of Varicose Vein Treatment
The most common treatment options that provided for patients suffering from varicose veins are radio frequency ablation and endovenous laser therapy.
Radio Frequency Ablation is a minimally invasive treatment method is used to treat varicose veins by delivering radio frequency energy to the vein using a small catheter. The radio frequency energy heats up vein causing the veins to shrink around the catheter. The catheter is then removed. The vein is then sealed shut to allow blood to flow naturally through healthy veins.
Endovenous Laser Therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that offers patients a more convenient and quick way to eradicate varicose veins. It uses laser energy to close malfunctioning veins so as to improve blood flow as well as causing faulty veins to be absorbed by the body.
