Take Pain Free Steps

Get back to what you love doing by treating your varicose vein leg pain, swelling, and tiredness with ClosureFast™ Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA).  Radio frequency energy (heat) is used to close the diseased vein, which redirects blood flow to healthy veins, relieving painful leg symptoms. ClosureFast™ is used to treat large varicose veins and often replaces the need to surgically remove a vein. The success rate of radiofrequency ablation in varicose veins is 97%.

What is ClosureFast™

ClosureFast™ is a minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins, also known as endovenous radiofrequency ablation (RFA). It is a medical procedure used to treat varicose veins by closing them off from the inside. During the procedure, a thin catheter is inserted into the affected vein through a small incision. The catheter delivers radiofrequency energy to heat and seal the vein, causing it to collapse and eventually be reabsorbed by the body.

ClosureFast™ is often preferred over traditional vein stripping surgery because it is less invasive, requires only local anesthesia, and typically results in less pain and faster recovery times for patients. This procedure has been shown to effectively relieve symptoms associated with varicose veins, such as pain, swelling, and discomfort, while also improving the appearance of the legs.

Common Symptoms from Varicose Veins

Many of the symptoms associated with varicose veins are very similar to symptoms of other health-related problems. Most people don't even realize that their symptoms come from varicose veins and end up taking a while to discover the root of the problem, unfortunately delaying care. Here are several symptoms to be aware of associated with varicose veins.

  • Swelling in the legs & ankles
  • Heaviness
  • Itching around the veins
  • Achy or heavy legs
  • Bulging or twisted veins
  • Burning or tingling in the legs
  • Pain from standing or sitting for an extended time
  • Veins that are dark purple or blue

Causes of Varicose Veins

The exact cause of varicose veins can not be attributed to just one factor and can vary from patient to patient. Over time, and sometimes from trauma, veins become damaged, causing bulging or twisted veins near the surface of the skin. While some causes can be prevented some people are predisposed to developing varicose veins in their lifetime. Causes of varicose veins may include:

  • Family History
  • Personal Health History
  • Lifestyle
  • Gender
  • Hormonal Changes
  • Age

Treatments for Varicose Veins

ClosureFast™ is an excellent treatment option for those suffering from varicose veins. ClosureFast™ uses radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to deliver energy and heat to collapse and seal the vein to eliminate blood flow through the damaged veins. Blood will divert to other healthy veins nearby, improving and possibly eliminating the symptoms of varicose veins.

Ultrasound testing will be conducted to determine if ClosureFast™ is the right treatment plan for your individual needs. The ClosureFast™ procedure is a simple office procedure that takes around 1 hour from beginning to end.  

Tepas Vein Center recommends CloresureFast™ for all patients that meet the criteria as it is a minimally invasive and highly effective in-office procedure that offers fast recovery.

Does Insurance Cover the Cost?

Office consultations, diagnostic testing (ultrasound), and procedures such as ClosureFast™ are covered by most insurance plans. However, each specific insurance plan may have unique criteria or limits in the policy that cover only certain treatment options or possibly only cover treatments such as ClosureFast™ after other treatment methods have been implemented.  

Tepas Vein Center has a dedicated pre-authorization department that works to determine what coverages are available that fit the needs of the patient so that out-of-pocket expenses are kept to a minimum.  

Patients can expect to pay standard out-of-pocket co-pays for seeing a specialist for a consultation or any follow-up visits. 

  • Insurance plans may have a co-pay, co-insurance, or deductibles
  • Self-pay & HSA Plans accepted

Please remember insurance policies vary and coverages can be different for each patient.
