The VNUS Procedure at Laser Vein Institute (LVI)

►A minimally invasive treatment for venous reflux disease (varicose veins).

The VNUS Closure Procedure, offers patients an efficient alternative for treating varicose veins to improve the skin’s appearance and to reduce health risks related to large varicose veins. The VNUS Closure Procedure utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat and contract the collagen found inside the vein walls, causing the vein to collapse and seal shut.

►Advantages and Benefits of the VNUS Closure Procedure include:

  • Outpatient procedure
  • Very little downtime; normal activity can be resumed within 1-2 days
  • Minimally-invasive; not an open surgical procedure
  • Little to no scarring
  • Long lasting relief from symptoms

Extensive clinical tests involving thousands of patients throughout the United States and Europe demonstrated that the VNUS Closure Procedure is effective at occluding (closing) veins and reducing patient symptoms. Published studies have shown that at 12 and 24 months following the VNUS Closure Procedure, over 90% of treated veins remained reflux free.
