Radiofrequency (RF) Varicose Vein Treatment

This procedure is often called RF, RFA, VNUS Closure™ or Closure

A tiny tube, similar in diameter to the laser fiber described in the laser treatment section, is inserted into the vein. The difference is that the thermal energy is generated using radiofrequency energy (radio waves) instead of laser energy. This thermal energy is generated in a manner which is very similar to how a microwave oven works. This device is the mainstay of vein treatment in most practices, and like laser, results in rapid relief of symptoms with little to no downtime, minimal bruising, and no scarring.

Dr. Rothstein performs both the Radiofrequency and Laser procedures in approximately 30-45 minutes in the comfort and convenience of his three offices in Georgetown, DC; McLean, VA, and Purcellville, VA. Dr. Rothstein has performed these procedures thousands of times on his patients in the Washington, DC metro area.
