The Venefit procedure comes as a blessing for those suffering from persistent varicose veins. The procedure promises you a perfectly painless way to get rid of your varicose veins.
Varicose veins are veins that have become overfilled with blood at certain spots, thus causing them to dilate and enlarge. This lump-like vein condition is often found on the lower legs and can be extremely painful. Sometimes they can even be spotted from afar because of the bluish-purple color they impart to the legs. Not only are they painful, but they’re also an inconvenience in the daily lives of the people suffering from them.
The condition is extremely common in women over the age of 50. Causes include obesity, pregnancy, pressure on the middle section of the body, especially excessive weight gain in the tummy area, menopause, chronic heart conditions, and standing for long periods of time.
Removing Unwanted Varicose Veins
There have been many ways in which varicose veins have been treated. With further research and better technology, skin specialists have been able to come up with treatments that are less invasive, less painful, and can even be conducted in an outpatient style. You just walk in, get your treatment done, and walk out. The beauty of these non-invasive treatments is that not only do you get your legs back in shape, you get to do so without suffering any downtime.
The Venefit Treatment
The Venefit procedure is an easy, safe, and non-surgical method of having your varicose veins removed. The treatment offers a very efficient and effective way of addressing this problem and also lowers and eliminates the risks associated with the disease itself.
The procedure uses radiofrequency energy, which helps in heating and thus contracting the collagen that is found inside the walls of veins. This process leads the veins to collapse and seal themselves. Upon closure of the veins, the symptoms of discoloration, swelling, pain, and heaviness reduce substantially.
Thousands of patients across the US and Europe have undergone the Venefit procedure successfully and have found the treatment effective.
Benefits of the Venefit Treatment
• An outpatient procedure, so it does not require a hospital stay
• Minimally invasive through local anesthesia – no general anesthesia needed
• A patient can go back to resume daily activities in little time
• Lasting relief from pain and other related symptoms
During a Venefit treatment, the physician will use ultrasound to position the catheter into the affected vein via a small opening in the skin. The Venefit catheter is powered with tiny radio-frequencies that supplies the vein wall with heat, which leads it to contract and seal shut. This allows the blood to flow into the healthy veins and leaves the affected veins looking less enlarged. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes, after which the doctor will place a simple bandage at the incision area. The entire procedure is done under local anesthesia to eliminate any pain that the patient might feel.
