Venefit FAQs at Aluna Vein Centers
How long does Venefit take?
The actual procedure takes less than an hour, but you can expect to spend 2-3 hours in your treatment facility to accommodate regular pre- and post-treatment procedures.
Is Venefit painful?
The operation is performed under local or regional anesthetic, so patients feel little to no pain.
Will I need anesthesia?
You may opt to have the procedure under local, regional, or general anesthesia, but because the procedure is minimally invasive, most patients are comfortable with local anesthesia.
Will I need to go through a recovery period?
Most patients can return to normal activities quickly. Your doctor may recommend a walking regimen and that you refrain from strenuous activities like heavy lifting for a few weeks after treatment.
How fast will the treatment work?
Patients generally start seeing improvements within two weeks after the procedure.
Will I have scarring, bruising, or swelling?
Because Venefit is minimally invasive, most patients experience little to none of these symptoms.
Are there any complications I should worry about?
Just like with all medical procedures, risks and complications are present with the Venefit treatment. Doctor Massoudi will review your unique case and assess any risks that may be prevalent for you. While complications from Venefit are rare, they may include vessel perforation, thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, phlebitis, hematoma, infection, paresthesia (numbness or tingling) and/or skin burn.
Can anyone get Venefit?
To find out if Venefit is right for you, you'll need to have a consultation with a dedicated vein specialist like Dr. Massoudi. If you'd like to see if Venefit can help treat your varicose veins, feel free to schedule a consultation at one of our Aluna Vein Centers in Southern California: Beverly Hills, Encino, Glendale and Irvine.
Does my age matter?
Venefit has been used to treat men and women of all ages, so age alone isn't a determinant of whether or not Venefit is right for you. We'll use a comprehensive ultrasound examination and comprehensive consultation to decide if Venefit is the right treatment.
How effective is Venefit?
Large, international studies have shown Venefit to be 93% effective after 3 years.
What happens to the vein once it closes?
The vein will turn into fibrous tissue after treatment, eventually being fully absorbed by surrounding tissues.
