Book Now

There are a variety of reasons our veins become weaker over time, including age or lifestyle. When our veins are weakened, the flow of blood can be obstructed, causing leg pain, swelling, and varicose veins.  This can be treated with radio-frequency vein ablation in Windermere at Lumina Vein & Aesthetic Institute.

During this out-patient procedure, the heat from the radio-frequency collapses the weakened vein, and your body naturally reroutes your blood flow to stronger, healthier veins.

RF Vein Ablation Before & Afters


The RF Vein Ablation Process

What to Expect?


Before receiving radio-frequency vein ablation in Windermere, you'll meet with one of our trained providers at Lumina Vein & Aesthetic Institute for an in-depth consultation. During this consultation we'll discuss your medical history and symptoms, then we will explain how the procedure works. With your goals in mind, your provider will work with you to determine which serums and or fillers to include in your microinfusion blend. This serum can include vitamins, Botox/fillers, and even plalette-rich plasma (PRP).


The whole treatment take 45 to 60 minutes. You'll lie down on a hospital bed and your provider will inject the treatment area with a numbing agent. After the area is numb, they will make a small incision in order to insert the thin catheter into the vein. Radio-frequency waves heat the vein, causing it to collapse. The catheter is removed and pressure is applied to stop the bleeding. Your provider will dress the wound and advise you to wear your compression stocking following treatment.

Next Steps

Follow all directions given to you for aftercare. Keep your leg elevated and avoid vigorous exercise, but be sure to walk a few times a day. You will come in for a follow-up appointment a week after your treatment.

Follow any specific instructions that your provider at Lumina Vein & Aesthetic Institute gives you prior to your procedure. Here are some general guidelines:

  • Make sure you are well hydrated prior to your ablation
