What Is Radiofrequency Ablation Treatment?
Radiofrequency Ablation is a form of ablation that instead of using laser energy, it uses microwave energy. In Hattiesburg, MS, board-certified vein specialist Dr. J. Keith Thompson provides radiofrequency ablation (RFA) treatment for varicose veins. RFA is an innovative, quick procedure that uses RF energy to heat the problem vein, which in turn collapses the vein and closes off blood flow to it. As a result, your varicose veins should disappear with a noticeable improvement in the way your legs feel, and if you also have venous ulcers, they should begin to heal. For more information about RF ablation treatment, reach out to Vein Institute Hattiesburg today to schedule an appointment.
What are the Benefits of RF Ablation Treatment?
Varicose veins can be unsightly, painful, and embarrassing for adults of all ages and backgrounds. But with RFA, you can finally get rid of them for good! Radiofrequency ablation is often a preferred treatment option because it is minimally invasive and does not require general anesthesia. It also has a lower risk of serious complications compared to other procedures. And since RFA is done in our office, you can get treated and go right back to your day. Our patients report that results are almost instantaneous, and they have seen a noticeable difference in their appearance right away. We are proud to provide advanced options for that allow our patients to get back to life without varicose veins.
What Can I Expect from RF Ablation Treatment?
Radiofrequency ablation treatment generally takes 30 minutes to complete, and no general anesthesia is needed. Instead, we may inject or apply a numbing agent to the treatment area to minimize any potential discomfort. After the treatment, there is little to no downtime so you should be able to return to your normal daily routine. Strenuous activity, like intense exercise, should be avoided for a few days, but your normal day-to-day activities may be resumed immediately for most patients. You may also experience some minor swelling and bruising post-procedure, but this should dissipate within a few days up to two weeks.
