What is a Microfoam Ablation?
This cutting-edge procedure uses a specially formulated microfoam that allows our specialists to relieve your symptoms without the use of the heat or tumescent. Not only does microfoam ablation treat enlarged veins, but it can also be used to treat tortuous or twisted veins and straight veins. This minimally invasive procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete and requires minimal downtime and a short recovery period.
What are the Benefits of Getting a Microfoam Ablation?
There are many benefits of receiving a microfoam ablation at Hamilton Vascular, including:
- Minimally invasive treatment
- Relieves enlarged, twisted, and straight veins
- Treats mild to severe varicose veins
- Minimal downtime and recovery period
What Can I Expect During My Microfoam Ablation?
Your microfoam ablation will be performed at your local Hamilton Vascular location by one of our board-certified vein specialists. Before your microfoam ablation begins, a topical or local anesthetic may be applied to your treatment area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment. Once numb, your specialist will begin injecting the specialized microfoam into your affected veins using a small needle or cannula. As little as three injections will need to be made into the veins in order to see results.
What Can I Expect After My Microfoam Ablation?
Immediately following your microfoam ablation, you may notice swelling, bruising, and tenderness around your treated areas. This is normal and typically resolves on its own within a few days of treatment. Most patients are able to their normal daily activities after one to two days following their treatment. Most patients are able to start feeling and seeing the results of their microfoam ablation within three to six weeks of treatment, with ultimate results becoming apparent within three to six months.
Is Microfoam Ablation Right for Me?
If you're suffering from varicose veins and the aches, pains, and discomfort that comes along with them, microfoam ablation at Hamilton Vascular may be right for you. The best way to find out if microfoam ablation is right for you is to schedule a private consultation with one of our board-certified specialists. They'll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, assess your veins' condition, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your ultimate health goals.
How Much does a Microfoam Ablation Cost?
The cost of your microfoam ablation will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage.
