Ultrasound is a non-invasive treatment used to eradicate varicose veins. It projects ultrasonic energy and then focuses it onto the problem veins. This causes tissue disruption around the varicose segment of the vein and ultimately destroys thereby eliminating the diseased vein. Ultra-sound can also be used to induce fibrosis in the overlying tissue of the varicose vein resulting in an inelastic barrier forming around the vein which reduces its unsightly appearance. These procedures are very effective and produce permanent and highly satisfactory results.
