What is ClosureFast?

One non-invasive option for treating unsightly veins in the legs is ClosureFast, which is a kind of radiofrequency ablation. The ClosureFast treatment involves inserting a thin catheter into a vein and then heating it with radiofrequency radiation. This causes the vein walls to collapse. Your varicose veins will go away once the vein closes because your body eliminates the treated tissue. Redirecting blood flow via healthy veins is another way your body returns circulation to normal.

ClosureFast uses an alternative method to seal off unhealthy varicose veins. A small amount of radiofrequency energy is applied to the vein walls via the ClosureFast system, which causes the vein to constrict and eventually collapse.

What to expect with the ClosureFast procedure?


The majority of patients have symptom reduction within two days, and a substantial improvement within one to two weeks. People who undergo the ClosureFast technique may resume regular activities at a faster rate compared to people who have surgical vein stripping or laser ablation. The ClosureFast treatment allows the average patient to normally return to regular activities within a few days. After the treatment, your vein expert may advise you to maintain a consistent walking routine and avoid engaging in strenuous lifting or lengthy periods of standing for a few weeks.

How does ClosureFast cure varicose veins?


This treatment is less intrusive than other surgical methods, resulting in less pain, bruising, and recovery time.

Catheterization and Ultrasound: Ultrasonography accurately places a tiny catheter into the affected vein for the primary therapy.

Anesthetic Use: To make the procedure more comfortable, a local anesthetic is injected into the knee, and then further anesthesia is administered down the vein’s length.

Treatment of Thermal Energy: The ClosureFast gadget produces homogeneous heat energy in 7cm intervals, resulting in the collapse and sealing of the vein. The human body undergoes a natural process of reabsorption of this vein during a period of 6 to 9 months.

Fast Recovery: A normal ClosureFast operation takes 45–60 minutes. Outpatient therapy allows many patients to return to work the same day.

What happens after my ClosureFast procedure?


Because varicose veins may make a person seem unattractive, many choose to have the Closurefast RFA technique done to restore their skin’s appearance. When seeking relief from lower leg aches, edema, and cramps, many people choose this therapy option. Using the Closurefast RFA, patients are able to endure less discomfort, bruising, and agony during and after the surgery. A bandage covering the little wound on your leg should suffice. Additionally, for a minimum of seven days, you must wear compression stockings. Stockings enhance circulation by compressing the vein walls and keeping them in place. Although some patients report temporary discomfort, bruising, or swelling, the vast majority report no adverse effects as all. You will get detailed instructions on the care of your leg from your clinician before you leave the office.

Prior to the surgery, an ultrasound imaging examination is performed on the afflicted leg to evaluate the superficial vein and choose the best course of therapy. One method of treating varicose veins is using Closurefast RFA, which makes use of radiofrequency radiation or heat. By rerouting blood flow to healthy veins, it alleviates varicose vein pain and other symptoms.

When compared to conventional vein-stripping surgery and laser treatments, ClosureFast a less invasive therapy procedure may cause less discomfort and bruising. By placing a ClosureFast catheter into an unhealthy vein and heating the vein wall using temperature-controlled radiofrequency radiation, medical professionals may seal off the affected vein.

When the vein’s wall is heated, the collagen inside contracts, sealing off the vein. Blood flows back to healthy veins when a vein is shut. If you have any questions about this procedure, the experts at the EliteVs vein clinic can answer them. Because varicose veins will not go away on their own, this procedure is often used to treat them.
