What Is VNUS Closure Therapy?

VNUS Closure therapy, also known as Venefit, is a treatment method for varicose veins that uses radiofrequency energy to close off diseased blood vessels. Minimally-invasive and non-surgical, this vein treatment makes it easy to target problem veins throughout the legs.

VNUS Closure is effective at treating veins of all different kinds, including the greater saphenous vein. This technique is fast and efficient, allowing patients to address varicose veins in under an hour. You may need additional appointments if you need treatment for multiple vein areas.

How VNUS Closure Therapy Works

The VNUS Closure procedure uses a catheter to burn off and seal diseased veins using invasive segmental radiofrequency.

The doctor uses an ultrasound machine to map out the veins that need therapy. A slit is made near the knee after the application of a local anesthetic. The doctor places a thin catheter into the slit and navigates it toward the groin. Radiofrequency energy collapses the vein by applying heat at a level around the boiling point. This begins the process of breaking down the vein. The body reabsorbs the vein eventually.

Undergoing VNUS Closure Therapy

VNUS Closure is minimally invasive and relatively painless. Patients can return home and take up normal activities immediately after receiving therapy. Most patients notice near-instant relief. Some discomfort may occur once anesthetic wears off in three to six hours. This should resolve quickly. Bruising and swelling occur. These symptoms resolve after a few days. You can wear a compression stocking for up to a week after treatment to reduce these side effects.

VNUS Closure therapy can provide fast relief to patients suffering from varicose veins. If you are seeking a solution to your vein conditions, Southern Vein and Laser Center can provide the resources you deserve.
