What is the ClosureFast™ procedure?
The ClosureFast™ procedure is a modern method designed specifically for the treatment of varicose veins. Utilizing targeted radiofrequency energy, it heats and collapses the problematic veins, leading to their eventual disappearance.

How does the ClosureFast™ procedure work in treating varicose veins?
Unlike some traditional surgeries, this approach is minimally invasive, often resulting in less pain, reduced bruising, and quicker recovery times.
Ultrasound & Catheter: Using ultrasound for precision, a tiny catheter is inserted into the affected vein, preparing for the main procedure.
Anesthetic Application: A local anesthetic is applied inside the knee for numbing, followed by further anesthesia along the vein's length for enhanced comfort.
Thermal Energy Treatment: The ClosureFast™ device, progressing in 7cm segments, emits uniform thermal energy, causing the vein to collapse and seal. The body naturally reabsorbs this vein in 6 to 9 months.
Quick Recovery Time: The entire ClosureFast™ procedure typically takes between 45 to 60 minutes. Being an outpatient treatment, many patients find they can return to their regular activities, including work, on the same day.
