Vein Ablation Treatment

Vein ablation treatment is one of the most commonly used treatments, mainly for larger varicose veins located on the legs. This particular extremely effective procedure boasts a success rate of 98 percent to 100 percent! For those suffering from the pain, discomfort, and frustration with developing varicose veins, Endovenous Vein Ablation,  a top choice treatment, is preferred by vein doctors all over the world. 

Vein ablation uses two ultrasound and laser technology in order to permanently seal the vein from the inside, allowing the blood to reroute to healthy veins. The affected vein is naturally absorbed by the body, eventually fading away completely. The ultrasound is used to precisely insert the very thin laser fiber directly into the vein, and the laser energy emits into the vein in order to cauterize and seal it.

Some patients may start to see results from vein ablation within a week of the treatment, but every patient’s outcome differs. Full results take anywhere from weeks to months. In some cases, a patient’s severe varicose veins require additional procedures to reach optimal results.
