Endovenous Laser & RF Ablation

How Endovenous Laser Ablation Works

Endovenous laser ablation is performed in comfortable and safe office environment & not in the hospital.

Endovenous

radiofrequency ablation

  • After local anesthesia vein is accessed.
  • Laser Fiber is advanced into the vein.
  • Tumescent anesthesia is administered around the vein.
  • Laser energy is carefully delivered to treat the vein.
  • Veins get treated as the laser fiber is pulled out slowly.

Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (Closurefast)

Venefit is similar to endovenous laser ablation as far as treatment steps are concerned, the only difference is the energy used is radio-frequency instead of a laser.
