Varicose veins can be extremely painful and embarrassing. They can also lead to other health problems. Traditionally, vein stripping has been used to treat varicose veins, but now there are more effective, less invasive, alternative procedures.
ClosureFast, also known as RadioFrequency Closure, is an alternative procedure to vein stripping. It is a minimally invasive treatment for pain and swelling caused by varicose veins. It is an outpatient procedure and patients can generally be back to daily activities within a day. Through the ClosureFast method, there is less pain and less bruising compared to traditional out-dated vein stripping methods.
The ClosureFast procedure closes veins by heating the vein wall using temperature-controlled RF energy. Heating the vein causes the collagen in the vein wall to shrink and the vein to close. Blood then naturally reroutes to healthy veins.
Some of the benefits of ClosureFast as opposed to vein stripping include being minimally invasive, reduction of postoperative recovery time and wound related complications. ClosureFast is also clinically proven to have less post-operative pain and excellent clinical outcomes that are cosmetically appealing.
