RF Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is the ideal minimally invasive procedure for large varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency, the root cause of most vein problems. RF ablation involves inserting a specialized catheter into the diseased saphenous vein to generate radiofrequency waves. The radiofrequency waves turn into thermal energy and destroy the diseased vein responsible for your vein problems. The accumulated blood reroutes into healthier leg veins, restoring optimal blood circulation to the heart.

What to expect during the procedure?

Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive procedure for varicose veins and underlying vein disease. It’s a simple, in-office procedure performed on an outpatient basis, allowing you to resume your daily activities and work immediately.
Radiofrequency ablation is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure. It involves a small incision on the skin’s surface — no major excisions, surgeries, or hospitalization.
Radiofrequency ablation doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort. The vein doctor administers local anesthesia before making an incision, so you don’t feel any pain — only a little pressure.
Radiofrequency ablation doesn’t involve any downtime. You have to wear compression stockings for a few weeks and avoid heavy lifting for a few days. But you can resume your daily activities and work immediately after the treatment.

Before and after Vein Doctor treatment


The primary advantage of RF ablation is that it’s a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure. There’s no need for extensive preparation or hospitalization, and the vein doctor can perform the treatment as a simple, in-office, outpatient procedure without downtime.

Radiofrequency ablation targets the root cause of your vein problems, i.e., chronic venous insufficiency, and not just the symptoms. Since it destroys the diseased vein responsible for your vein problems, it minimizes the risk of spider veins and varicose veins returning.


Radiofrequency ablation involves surrounding the diseased vein with tumescent anesthesia to ensure comfort. In the hands of an inexperienced vein doctor, you may experience considerable discomfort because of the need for additional injections.

Radiofrequency ablation can be performed using numerous techniques and technologies. You must find a vein doctor who uses cutting-edge technologies for radiofrequency ablation to ensure optimal safety and comfort.
