Results and Patient Experience May Vary
This patient was seen in 2019 with large varicosities. They underwent radiofrequency ablation in late 2019. Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally-invasive option that heats and damages the inner walls of your varicose veins, causing scar tissue to form in the vein. This closes off the vein and results in blood flow redirecting to healthy veins, allowing the body to gradually absorb the varicose vein so it fades from view. The After photos were taken six weeks after treatment on saphenous veins and varicose veins. The patient is very happy!
