Varicose veins occur when valves in the vein become damaged, causing blood to pool. The result is bulging veins that are not only unsightly and make sufferers self-conscious, but also painful. Radiofrequency Ablation (RA) is a minimally-invasive treatment that uses thermal energy to destroy the great saphenous vein (GSV) in the thigh or the small saphenous vein in the back of the calf.
Fast, effective and good for business
Proven to be extremely effective at treating varicose veins, RA is also efficient, with the process able to be performed within 3 minutes in an in-and-out patient setting. This rapid treatment time is excellent news for clinicians as it allows for higher patient turnover, while the procedure’s minimally invasive nature is a huge drawcard for potential patients and leads to a higher conversion rate.
RA also allows the patient to recover faster, especially when compression stockings – such as SIGVARIS’ range of Sclero X compression stockings – are used in the aftercare. The stockings apply pressure that promotes blood flow from the legs to the heart while also reducing pain and swelling in the legs and ankles, especially after treatment.
Two generators, two top choices for treating varicose veins
RF Medical offers two generators for the safe and reliable treatment of patients suffering from varicose veins.
The Mygen V-700 boasts a pre-set ablation algorithm that adjusts to vein diameter, improving the locating, testing, and targeting of varicose veins as well as PC compatibility for observation and data download.
The Mygen V-1000 automatically identifies and function tests electrodes, and features a voice information system.
Both generators are easy to operate with an LCD touch screen and advanced self-test function, making the treatment of varicose veins through RA straightforward and efficient for the practice, while achieving excellent patient outcomes.
The RF Medical Radiofrequency Ablation treatment and generators offer a fast and efficient, and minimally invasive solution to varicose veins that is easy to operate, provides accurate data, and speeds up treatment times for an increase in patient conversion. When used in conjunction with compression garments as part of the aftercare, it ensures a smoother and safer recovery for the patient.
