Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
Varicose veins--those protruding, twisting veins that often appear on one’s legs, are not only unappealing in appearance but can also cause issues such as restless leg syndrome, chronic pain and/or swelling. At Bellava Medaesthetics & Plastic Surgery Center, we offer the most advanced form of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to our patients in Westchester. This treatment helps to correct the appearance of varicose veins as well as alleviate venous insufficiency. What’s more, most medical insurance plans, including Medicare cover this procedure.
At Bellava our board-certified vein specialist Dr. Rahul Sood (Go here to read more about Dr. Sood) carries out radiofrequency ablation with the Venefit™ procedure, a highly effective varicose vein treatment that can be performed without general anesthesia. It is a minimally invasive treatment that improves the appearance of varicose veins with radio waves. The Venefit™ procedure is considered a lunchtime treatment and takes approximately 45-60 minutes so you can fit it into your busy day.
