What is RFA?
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is yet another procedure that Vein Care Medical Center incorporates in its repertoire of services for our valued patients. Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) represents the most current non-surgical alternative that can help reduce the appearance of unwanted veins, which can affect patients both cosmetically and medically.. Targeted, uniform heat is precisely delivered to the vein in question, contracting collagen within the vein walls, which will cause the collapse of the vein, sealing it shut, directing and re-routing blood through healthier veins back towards the heart.
Vein Care Medical Center utilizes ClosureFast™ endovenous radiofrequency ablation, a special catheter inserted into the affected vein through a tiny incision just below the knee, threaded throughout the vessel. In contrast to laser therapy, ClosureFast™ eliminates the need for the constant pull back to the source of energy, which promotes a more controlled, constant radiofrequency ablation, targeting 7 cm segments of the affected vessel at a time. ClosureFast™ helps facilitate blood flow, redirect blood through healthy veins, ensuring a seamless recovery process. The closed vein is then absorbed through the body’s natural processes.
ClosureFast™ Radiofrequency Ablation results in the entire length of the vein being sealed. It’s one the most precise, thorough, and safe minimally-invasive treatments for unwanted veins.

You’re only a consultation away from the targeted treatment you need.
