Varicose veins are enlarged veins that can be blue, red, or flesh-colored. They are often raised above the skin on legs and look like twisted bulging cords. Varicose veins occur when the valves in the veins that carry blood from the legs toward the heart no longer function, causing blood to pool in the legs.

Do you suffer from varicose veins?

Varicose veins are gnarled, enlarged veins that most commonly appear in the legs and feet. Damage in the lower extremities of the body is more common due to standing and walking, which increases the pressure of those veins. These veins can appear as bulging and twisted with a dark purple or blue color. Some people want to get rid of varicose veins for just cosmetic reasons, but others decide to seek medical help due to aching pain and discomfort. Painful symptoms include an achy or heavy feeling in the legs, itching around one or more veins, burning, throbbing, swelling, and hardening of the vein. If you suffer from these symptoms, the Venefit procedure might be right for you!

Venefit™ Targeted Endovenous Therapy is an effective treatment for varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).


What is the Venefit procedure?

The Venefit procedure offers patients a non-surgical method of treating varicose veins to not only improve the skin’s appearance but to reduce the pain and health risks associated with large varicose veins.

Is Venefit right for me?

To determine if the Venefit procedure is right for you, we invite you to speak with our vein specialist at Ideal Body Institute (formerly Atlanta SurgiCare).

Proven results for varicose veins with Venefit at Ideal Body Institute in Atlanta

In a comparative multi-center study on the treatment of varicose veins, the Venefit™ procedure delivered by the ClosureFast catheter demonstrated less pain, less bruising, and fewer complications than traditional methods.


How does the Venefit procedure work?

During the Venefit procedure, the surgeon will insert a special catheter, known as the Covidien ClosureFast endovenous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) catheter, through a minor incision below the knee. The catheter is then guided using ultrasound imaging, and the target vein is treated using heat that does not exceed 120°C. The heat, which is produced by radiofrequency energy, affects the collagen, causing the vein to shrink around the catheter. After the enlarged vein is sealed shut, the blood will naturally find its way to healthy veins.


What are the advantages of the Venefit procedure?

The advantages of the Venefit procedure are that it is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require general anesthesia. The procedure results in less pain, less bruising, little to no scarring, and faster recovery than older treatments, such as vein stripping.

Are there any risks associated with the Venefit procedure?

Risks associated with the Venefit procedure include infection, nerve irritation, skin burn, bruising, vessel perforation, pulmonary embolism, and inflammation of the vein.


How long does the Venefit procedure take?

On average, one vein can be treated in as little as 15 minutes.

When will I start seeing results? How long will the results last?
