Use radiofrequency ablation to effectively treat varicose veins.

ClosureFast™️ Procedure for Varicose Veins

Spider and varicose veins are common complaints in women and men. These visible veins can be more than a source of embarrassment; they can also cause uncomfortable symptoms like achiness or swelling. 

The board-certified vascular physicians at Empire Vein Specialists perform ClosureFast™, as well as other vein services, to treat unwanted spider and varicose veins. The ClosureFast™ procedure is a minimally invasive vein treatment with long-lasting results.

What is ClosureFast™?

ClosureFast™delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy directly into the affected vein using a very narrow catheter, which is inserted via a tiny incision. Treatment is done using local anesthetic so you are comfortable throughout your procedure. Most patients return to regular activities the same day or the day after treatment.

The ClosureFast™ procedure is an innovative approach to eliminate unwanted veins and takes less than 30 minutes in our office. The procedure delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy at a precise temperature into the affected vein. RF energy heats the interior of the vein and causes it to seal closed. The treated vein collapses, and the body gradually absorbs it so it disappears from view. As the vein collapses and is reabsorbed by the body, symptoms accompanying the vein also subside. 

Some patients treat their spider or varicose veins to enhance their appearance. Others might experience uncomfortable symptoms with their visible vessels, such as: 

  • Leg heaviness or achiness
  • Swelling of the leg and ankle
  • Itching or burning
  • Skin changes 
  • Restless leg syndrome 

Benefits of ClosureFast™

The ClosureFast™ vein procedure offers numerous benefits over other vein treatments like laser ablation and vein stripping: 

  • Lower heat temperatures lower the risk of side effects like bruising and pain
  • Patients report improvement in their symptoms within one to two weeks after treatment
  • Studies show more patients report no pain and a higher quality of life after RF ablation
  • Most patients see continued improvement even five years after treatment 

How Much Does the ClosureFast™ Procedure Cost?

If your treatment is considered medically necessary due to a diagnosis of venous reflux, insurance may cover all or a portion of your ClosureFast™ procedure. The providers at Empire Vein will come up with a customized treatment plan and discuss all your related costs upfront so you don’t have any surprises on your bill.

You don’t have to live with unsightly, uncomfortable spider and varicose veins. Our team at Empire Vein Specialists offers free ultrasound screenings, and we accept most forms of insurance for treatments.
