The skin on the inside of the thigh is injected with xylocaine, and then a thin radiofrequency catheter is fed into the vein. This highly sophisticated catheter then delivers energy to the inside of the vein, and is slowly withdrawn.
The catheter has temperature sensors on it, which are monitored during the procedure, making sure the vein is getting the exact amount of heat to close the vein permanently.
With this procedure, patients are back to near normal activities the following day.

Finally there is a solution to leg swelling and varicose veins that does not involve Stripping or Lasers!
The VNUS Closure procedure from Vein Care Specialists of South Florida is a minimally invasive approach to treat venous reflex disease in superficial veins, a progressive condition that worsens over time if left untreated.
Using ultrasound to scan your leg(s), Dr. Marzano determines if superficial venous reflex disease is present. Most major health insurance providers will cover the Closure procedure. Dr. Marzano will discuss the best cosmetic outcome for you, which may include additional adjunctive treatments such as stab phlebectomy incisions and/or sclerotherapy injections of spider veins.
The following video clip explains radiofrequency closure of varicose veins on ABC's "Good Morning America" show:
