Endovenous Ablation is an advanced treatment (used mostly for larger varicose veins) that harnesses heat energy to shut down the vein. The heat can be produced through either a radio frequency or with laser technology. The goal of the procedure is to tighten and shrink the vein to the point that it is no longer viewable through the skin. Although the valves are still not able to function, the procedure gets rid of the vein swelling and the pain/discomfort that commonly goes along with it. Endovenous Ablation is used more and more today in place of an older technique called vein stripping. The reason for its rise in popularity is its high success rate for a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure. READ MORE >>>
