Endovenous Laser Ablation is a drug free treatment that involves the use of a laser to heat varicose veins which causes them to collapse shrink and disappear. It is safer than traditional Sclerotherapy and is a minimally invasive procedure performed in the office. This method can be more effective particularly with those with badly swollen veins.
Radiofrequency Occlusion is a method in which a small tube is inserted into the vein and pushed through it. This causes the vein to collapse and disappear.
