The Venefit™ procedure is the only minimally invasive segmental radiofrequency (RF) ablation treatment that utilizes radio-frequency energy to provide an even and uniform heat to contract the collagen in the vein walls, causing them to collapse and seal. Once a leg vein is closed, blood flow is redirected to healthy veins.
The Venefit™ procedure allows for a quick, comfortable recovery and a return to everyday activities, while also improving the appearance of varicose veins.
Endovenous laser treatment is a minimally invasive varicose vein treatment alternative to the more traditional method of ligation and vein stripping.
A thin fiber is inserted into the damaged vein via a very small skin nick. Laser light energy, the same type of energy that is used in other types of medical procedures such as eye surgery and dermatology, is delivered to the targeted tissue, which reacts with the light, causing the vein to close and seal shut.
The veins that are closed are superficial veins that handle less than five percent of the body's blood flow. The blood is automatically routed to other, healthy veins. The VenaCure EVLT system uses this technology to treat varicose veins.
