Treating varicose veins RF treatment

RF treatment

Call us for an appointment 020 3055 811

In the RF treatment (VNUS ClosureFast), the varicose vein in the upper leg or calf is closed using radio waves. Under ultrasound guidance, the varicose vein is punctured at the level of the knee (if we treat the upper leg) or at the bottom of the calf (if we treat the calf). An RF wire is advanced into the vein through this access. The correct position of the RF wire is determined with echo. The vein is anesthetized and then cauterized with radio waves every 6.5 cm at 120 degrees Celsius. As a result, the vein wall shrinks and the varicose vein closes. After the treatment you will receive an elastic support stocking that you will wear for 36 hours. We already have the stocking ready for you.

Reimbursement for RF treatment

A referral letter for the first consultation, including vascular examination (duplex), is required in connection with the reimbursement thereof. Without a referral letter, these costs are for your own account.
After the vascular examination, it is known whether it concerns a medical or cosmetic treatment. If it concerns a cosmetic treatment, you must pay for the treatment yourself. This also applies to the stockings. If it concerns medical treatment, the costs will be submitted to your insurer.
