All I want for Christmas is Radio Frequency Ablation!

Christmas is a time of giving. But let’s be honest, we all love getting presents too. This holiday season, get yourself the gift of having varicose vein free legs. The cold months are the perfect time to seek vein treatment, too!

Venous Disease, CVI and Varicose Veins

Venous disease plagues the daily lives of millions of Americans. Varicose veins are a medical condition due to venous reflux disease or chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) leading to blood pooling in the lower legs. This can cause the vessels to swell and protrude beneath the skin’s surface. Varicose veins manifest themselves as thick, blue, purple or green rope like cords that twist and turn. Symptoms of varicose veins can be extremely uncomfortable and painful, especially after standing, sitting, or traveling for extended periods of time.

Radiofrequency Ablation as the perfect Christmas gift

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of the diseased veins is an excellent treatment option. It is quick and easy. It is nearly painless. In fact, the average length of time for the Radiofrequency Ablation procedure is only about 30-45 minutes. If you start the RFA treatment now, your legs will be cleared of unsightly veins in time for the warm weather. Radiofrequency Ablation involves inserting a small catheter into the diseased vein through a very small incision. The catheter is then threaded through the vessel up to the groin area. Carefully controlled radiofrequency waves are applied in intervals to heat and seal the vein in small increments. After each segment is treated, the catheter is manually withdrawn down the vein and the process is repeated until the entire length of the vein has been sealed. Blood automatically reroutes through healthy veins, eliminating uncomfortable symptoms.

This is the season for vein treatment!

Compression stockings come with treatment of varicose veins. You’ll need to wear these medical grade stockings for a short period of time after treatment. Compression stockings are much more comfortable in the winter, because of the cold weather, the extra layer beneath clothing will be beneficial. Some don’t feel comfortable wearing this hosiery with shorts, out in public. In the winter months, you will be wearing lengthier clothing, that will cover your compression stockings with ease.

More benefits to Radiofrequency Ablation in the winter:

● The procedure is easy to incorporate into even the busiest holiday schedules; the entire procedure is completed in less than an hour and there is little to no downtime following your appointment.

● Symptoms of varicose veins are gone very soon after the procedure is over.

● The procedure has a very high success rate.

● Keeping your newly treated legs out of the sun will be a breeze
