Frequently asked questions at our San Diego varicose vein treatment center

How much does radiofrequency ablation varicose cost in San Diego?

The cost of RFA for varicose veins can vary depending on factors like the extent of treatment needed and individual healthcare plans. During your consultation, our medical team will provide a personalized cost estimate and discuss potential financial options.

Is radiofrequency ablation varicose covered by insurance?

Insurance coverage for RFA can differ based on your specific insurance plan and the medical necessity criteria defined by your insurer. We recommend contacting your insurance provider to understand your coverage and eligibility.

How successful is radiofrequency ablation for varicose veins?

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is considered a highly successful and effective treatment for varicose veins. Studies have shown excellent outcomes, with most patients experiencing relief from symptoms and improved vein appearance. However, individual results may vary, and your doctor will discuss your expected outcomes during your consultation.

Is there a downside to vein ablation?

While RFA is minimally invasive and generally well-tolerated, potential downsides may include minor discomfort, bruising, or temporary skin discoloration at the treatment site. These side effects are typically mild and temporary, resolving within a few weeks.

Is radiofrequency vein ablation painful?

Radiofrequency vein ablation is usually well-tolerated, with most patients experiencing only minimal discomfort, often described as slight pressure or a mild sensation of heat. Local anesthesia is administered to ensure patient comfort during the procedure.

How long does it take for varicose veins to go away after ablation?

Following RFA, varicose veins typically improve gradually. You may notice relief from symptoms within a few weeks, with the full cosmetic benefits becoming more apparent over several months as the treated veins gradually fade and are absorbed by the body.

How to prepare for radiofrequency ablation varicose?

Preparation for RFA will be discussed during your pre-procedure consultation with our medical team. Typically, preparations include avoiding certain medications, fasting before the procedure, and wearing loose, comfortable clothing. Your doctor will provide detailed instructions tailored to your specific needs.
