Dissolve Unwanted Varicose Veins

Get ready to feel like a new you with RF vein ablation — a minimally invasive procedure for varicose veins! This procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat the vein walls, causing them to collapse. Over time, these varicose veins dissolve, resulting in smoother and clearer skin you can enjoy for years.

Benefits of RF Vein Ablation

Long-Term Relief

Vein ablation permanently closes the treated vein, ensuring that you won’t have issues from that vein again! Once you have fully recovered from the treatment, you can enjoy complete relief from varicose vein symptoms.

Minimal Downtime

After we perform your RF vein ablation in Columbus, you can return to your normal activities, except for intense exercise. That means you can go back to work, school, or wherever you may need to be right after your procedure.

No General Anesthesia

We do numb the area with a local anesthetic before insertion, but you won’t have to go under general anesthesia for the procedure. This minimizes your recovery time and allows you to drive yourself home afterward!

How RF Vein Ablation Works

We first inject a numbing solution before inserting a catheter into the vein. This catheter heats with radiofrequency energy and, as we slowly draw it back out, it collapses the vein walls. This blocks blood flow to the problem vein to break it down — you’ll see an immediate reduction in the appearance of your varicose vein. Your body will naturally absorb it over several weeks to several months to get full results.

    What to Expect

    • Step 1: Consultation

      During your consultation, one of our specialists assesses your previous medical history and examines the preferred treatment site. They’ll discuss your treatment options, explain how your procedure works, and determine if RF vein ablation in Columbus is a suitable treatment option for you.

    • Step 2: Treatment

      Your specialist will make sure you are completely comfortable before beginning the procedure. We will inject the numbing solution into the area to reduce any discomfort and then insert the catheter. For most patients, this procedure will take less than an hour, depending on the number of veins you’d like to treat.

    • Step 3: Next Steps

      After the procedure, most patients can notice an immediate difference in their varicose veins, with results continuing to improve over time. However, some patients may need more than one treatment session to complete treatment of all of their varicose veins. We will provide our expert recommendations for treatment in your initial consultation with us.
