Varicose veins can be treated for cosmetic purposes and medical reasons. Sometimes the veins can become sore and swollen, especially when sitting or standing for more extended periods of time, so it is essential to seek treatment to avoid more severe complications such as bleeding and blood clots.
Why do varicose and spider veins occur?
The body has one-way valves that carry blood to the heart. Some of these valves are closer to the surface of the skin, and some are much deeper. The reason these valves allow blood to only travel one way is to prevent backflow, but sometimes there are problems with the veins or valves and blood will start to pool and collect inside the veins.
This is what causes veins to appear swollen, raised, and cause it to twist and turn. If a lot of blood is collecting and staying there, it can also become painful. Pain can happen especially if the person is standing or sitting in the same position for large periods of time because the blood is being stagnant. This could make work that requires a lot of sitting or standing to become uncomfortable or painful, as well as traveling.
What is radiofrequency thermal ablation and how does it work?
Radiofrequency thermal ablation, also called ClosureFast, is a treatment used to eliminate varicose or spider veins. The way it works is by using controlled heat through radiofrequency energy which contracts the collagen within the vein walls and causes the veins to collapse and seal. The blood that was in those veins will then move to other, healthy veins. The procedure will usually take 45-60 minutes and will be performed using local anesthesia.
This procedure works well for people who want a minimally invasive treatment because radiofrequency thermal ablation only requires small incisions or punctures to be made.
What are the possible side effects of radiofrequency thermal ablation?
Possible side effects could include feeling like the skin is burning, pain, and prickly, likely from nerve damage after the procedure. There is also the possibility of having blood clotting in the vein.
