What Is Vein Ablation?
Vein ablation is a non-surgical treatment for varicose veins. Varicose veins are enlarged veins, and they are typically on the legs. They are caused by leaks in the valves of veins, causing the blood in the veins to pool.
Vein ablation closes these uncomfortable veins. Not only does this reduce their appearance, but it can help manage and reduce frustrating side effects of varicose veins, such as:
- Skin irritation
While varicose veins can be unpleasant to look at, they can also limit daily life. However, vein ablation allows you to better manage their effects.
What Could I Expect from Treatment?
Vein ablation is a minimally invasive treatment. Ultrasound technology is used to visualize the varicose veins or areas of concern. A catheter is inserted into the treatment area to deliver energy to the treatment area. This energy closes the vein.
Local anesthesia is used to help manage and reduce any discomfort associated with vein ablation. There is no set downtime associated with the procedure, and you should be able to return to your normal daily activities in Maryland. However, you may need to wear compression stockings as the treatment area heels.
Results achieved with vein ablation will vary for each person and their specific veins. Most people enjoy results shortly after treatment. It may be an effective choice for reducing the appearance of varicose veins for up to a year.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most generally healthy adults frustrated with varicose veins may be able to benefit from vein ablation treatments. It is important to approach treatment with realistic goals and expectations.
A consultation with our team in Maryland can help ensure this is the best venuous treatment method for you and your experiences. They can also help you determine if follow-up treatments can help you maintain your results.
