Top 4 Questions About Radiofrequency Ablation: Answered

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a non-surgical treatment option for chronic pain that’s gaining popularity for both the minimal side effects it poses and its effectiveness.

It works by using heat—generated by electrical current—on affected nerve tissues, disrupting pain mechanisms. But even though it sounds like an intimidating treatment, it’s actually safe and relatively painless.

RFA is also used to treat varicose veins—enlarged and swollen veins that bulge above the skin’s surface, sometimes causing painful symptoms like cramping, aching, and swelling in the affected area.

In this post, our vein specialists will answer some common questions about radiofrequency ablation as a treatment for vein diseases:

1. How Does Radiofrequency Ablation Treat Varicose Veins?

During this procedure, the doctor uses radiofrequency energy to damage the vein wall, creating scar tissue. The scar tissue closes the vein, and the damaged vein is absorbed by the surrounding blood in the aftermath.

The doctor carries out this procedure by injecting radiofrequency energy through a small incision in the affected vein. The treatment is minimally invasive, treating varicose veins and spider veins from the inside.

This vein ablation procedure not only cosmetically removes bulging veins, but it also helps ease pain and aches.

2. What Is The Recovery Period Like?

Patients are encouraged to start walking immediately after the treatment, but are advised to avoid strenuous activities like weight training for at least two to three weeks following the procedure. This enables adequate time for the healing of treated veins.

3. What Can You Expect During This Vein Treatment?

Unlike invasive procedures like vein stripping—surgically stripping veins from the leg—venous ablation uses a catheter that’s inserted through a small incision. Before carrying out the procedure, the skin is sterilized and numbed.

The doctor studies the ultrasound to guide the insertion of the catheter and gauge the procedure’s effectiveness.

The laser energy seals off the vein, which eventually shrinks and is reabsorbed by the surrounding blood.

Radiofrequency ablation has few negative outcomes, and leaves virtually no scars. Swelling and numbness at the site of insertion are some common temporary side effects—both not major.

4. Is Radiofrequency Ablation Right For Me?

Only a vein specialist can determine if you’re a good candidate for radiofrequency ablation. Doctors recommend the treatment to patients if they don’t respond to physical therapy or pain medications.
