5 Reasons to Consider RF Treatment for Your Varicose Veins
Radiofrequency (RF) treatment, also known as Venefit, has become a popular method for eliminating painful and unattractive varicose veins. This procedure uses RF energy to damage the veins from inside, causing the vessels to seal shut and fade from view. If you are looking for a vein treatment that will offer you good results with minimal risk, the staff at Center for Vein Restoration have five good reasons to make RF treatment your procedure of choice.
Venefit is a minimally-invasive treatment, which means it can be performed at our office on an outpatient basis. Local anesthesia is commonly used, which reduces risks associated with the procedure, as well as recovery time. Patients experience little or no discomfort during and after the procedure, and there is little or no recovery time needed.
Quick Procedure, No Downtime
Most Venefit procedures can be completed in under 60 minutes. Patients are encouraged to walk immediately following the procedure and are usually able to return to regular activities right away or the day after their treatment. This allows you to reap the long-lasting benefits of vein treatment without a major disruption to your daily life.
Fewer Side Effects
Some studies have suggested that patients undergoing Venefit experience less discomfort than those opting for other types of vein treatment, such as endovenous laser treatment or EVLT. Other studies have found that Venefit may result in less bruising and swelling. Because laser heat is not used to treat damaged veins, there may also be a lower risk of damage to surrounding tissue, skin and vessels.
In many cases, varicose veins may be merely a cosmetic concern that can be effectively treated with procedures like Venefit. However, patients experiencing painful symptoms with their varicose veins, such as aching, swelling or cramping, will also see relief. In fact, symptom relief may come as soon as the procedure has ended and the painful veins are effectively treated.
Venefit has proven just as effective as other minimally-invasive methods of vein treatment, which means around 90 percent of the patients that undergo the procedure will see positive and permanent results. Damaged vessels are completely damaged and eliminated from the body, while blood is rerouted to healthy vessels nearby. Recurrence rates are low, making Venefit a good investment of both time and money.
