When looking to avoid the use of injection the salt solution into your veins, radiofrequency ablation could be the answer. Also used to help with chronic neck and back pain, this form of treatment can work wonders for eliminating your varicose veins and spider veins. This procedure is minimally invasive, making it a favorite among our patients.
How Does It Work?
During this procedure, our team will insert a device called a catheter into the vein being treated. Once it is in place, an electrical current runs through the device and attacks the vein with thermal heat. The goal is for the heat to damage the vein enough to cause scar tissue to form. Once this occurs, the problematic vein gets absorbed by the surrounding blood, eliminating the issue.
