In previous years, individuals suffering from varicose veins and severe spider veins were forced to undergo an invasive vein stripping procedure in which the diseased veins were removed from the body. Fortunately, new advances in medical technology have led to the development of the VNUS Closure® procedure. Continue reading to learn more about VNUS Closure® for varicose vein treatment.
The VNUS Closure® procedure is a revolutionary treatment option designed to close diseased veins without open surgery. This procedure is performed using radiofrequency energy to treat affected veins.
What to Expect Prior to the Procedure
Before you can undergo any type of vein treatment procedure, your physician will perform a physical examination of your legs. Your physician may also recommend an ultrasound to assess the severity of your abnormal leg veins before determining if VNUS Closure® is right for you.
What Occurs During VNUS Closure®
The VNUS Closure® procedure is done on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia. Using ultrasound guidance, your surgeon will insert the Closure® catheter into the affected vein through a miniscule opening in your skin. This catheter then delivers radiofrequency energy into the vein wall, heating the vein from the inside and causing it to shrink and seal shut. Once the vein has been closed, blood flow is naturally re-routed to healthy veins.
The Benefits of VNUS Closure®
The VNUS Closure® procedure provides a number of benefits over traditional vein stripping procedures. This outpatient procedure not only results in minimal to no scaring, bruising, or swelling, but also eliminates many of the risks associated with traditional surgery. Additionally, individuals who undergo the VNUS Closure® procedure are usually able to resume their normal activities the very next day.
The best way to determine if the VNUS Closure® procedure is the best treatment option for your needs is to consult your New York vein specialist. Get the information you need regarding your vein treatment options by contacting Advanced Varicose Vein Treatments of Manhattan at (212) 204-6501.

Spider veins and varicose veins are not only unsightly, but can also increase your risk for leg ulcers. This video takes a closer look at the causes and treatment options for spider veins.
Spider veins develop when the valves within your veins become damaged or weakened, allowing blood to pool within the vein and ultimately causing the vein to swell. Spider veins usually develop on the legs and backs of the knees—however, some individuals may also develop spider veins around their nose and along their cheeks. Watch this video to learn more about radio frequency treatments for spider veins.
