When you are at a point in your life when you are ready to do something about your varicose veins, you should definitely consider the benefits that are associated with using Venefit™ for varicose vein treatment. We understand that varicose veins are not only unattractive, but they are also painful and can cause many problems. It is important for you to learn about the different types of varicose vein treatments that are available in order to choose the one that is right for you.

The first thing that you should understand about Venefit™ is that it is only a minimally-invasive treatment. It uses radio frequency energy in order to target specific veins. Once the vein has been treated, blood will no longer go through it. The blood will find a way through other veins that are healthy.

The idea behind this procedure is pretty straightforward. You may be wondering how it is different than the VNUS™ Closure varicose vein treatment. Basically, it is the exact same thing. However, it has a new name. It provides the same benefits that individuals enjoyed using the other treatment.

There are a wide variety of benefits that come from using Venefit™ as opposed to using a treatment like vein stripping. When you go through vein stripping, there are incisions that are made in your legs. The vein is actually pulled out through the incision. This is an invasive procedure that has a variety of negative side effects and many risks. When you use Venefit™, you do not experience the same discomfort that is associated with a procedure like vein stripping.

During your first consultation, we will discuss what treatment options are available for your comfort. The Venefit™ procedure is usually done using local anesthesia. It is performed right here in the comfort of our office.

As you are looking at all of the different options that are available for varicose vein treatment, definitely take some time to learn more about Venefit™. There are a lot of benefits that can come from using this treatment option as opposed to other treatments that are currently available.

During your consultation with Dr. Wieters at The Vein Center in Mt. Pleasant, he is going to examine your varicose veins and your health history in order to come up with a treatment plan that is best for you and your veins. Contact us today to schedule a consultation to find out more.
