Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is performed to close damaged and malfunctioning veins that are responsible for causing varicose veins.
What to Expect
Varicose veins do not function properly and do not return blood back to the heart. The pressure that causes these veins to enlarge can also eventually damage normal surrounding tissue and overlying skin. RFA is used to seal off defective or diseased feeder veins, eliminating the source of surface varicose veins. This treatment is very safe and effective.
