It's not even the end of the day and you can't wait to sit down and put your feet up. The heaviness, aching and throbbing you feel in your lower extremities may even be clearly visible by the bluish trails along your legs. If so, you probably dislike what you see as much as the discomfort it causes.

VNUS Closure

The Closure Fast procedure is a safe and effective treatment for venous reflux and symptomatic varicose veins. It replaces the older form of treatment, vein stripping. "Closure" is used to seal large veins beneath the surface of the skin that cause venous symptoms and visible varicose veins. The procedure is performed in our office under local anesthesia. Through a small needle stick, we insert a thin catheter into the vein. As the catheter is removed, it delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein wall causing it to heat, swell and seal. After the diseased vein is sealed, healthy veins continue to return blood from the leg.

Patients experience only minor discomfort during and after "Closure". Symptoms are usually improved within a few days and varicose veins diminish over several weeks. We encourage our patients to exercise daily beginning on the day of the procedure. Most patients return to work the next day. The surgeons of Vein Specialists of the Carolinas have performed thousands of "Closure" procedures. Our patients experience minimal downtime and excellent functional and cosmetic outcomes.
