Radiofrequency energy has been used to treat a variety of aesthetic skin conditions associated with the aging process. It can also be used to treat varicose veins and other vein-related problems that show through the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin. Venefit™ treatment is an effective solution for such conditions.
What is Venefit™ Treatment?
There are other forms of treatment for venous diseases, including sclerotherapy. This involves injecting a special solution into the affected vein or veins. The solution irritates the lining of the vein, causing it to shrink and close over time.
The Venefit™ treatment is even less invasive than sclerotherapy. A special catheter that emits radiofrequency energy is inserted into the vein. The heating effect of the RF energy causes the vein to shrink and close very quickly.
Once the troubled vein has been closed, the blood will redirect itself to other healthier veins in the leg and painful symptoms will subside. The appearance of the treated veins will diminish over time.
For Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is another condition that can benefit from Venefit™ treatment. CVI occurs when the blood vessels in the legs, which send blood back to the heart, don’t work properly. The one-way valves in the veins fail to move the blood back upwards sufficiently, resulting in the collection of blood in the veins in the legs.
This causes a condition similar to the kind caused by varicose veins. The veins will soon become noticeable and, if not treated, can causes ulcers in the legs. It can also cause swelling, itching and pain. If you suffer from CVI, you could be a good candidate for Venefit™ treatment.
