Clinical & Lifestyle Benefits


Patients treated with the ClosureFast™ Procedure may resume normal activities more quickly than patients who undergo surgical vein stripping or 980 nm laser ablation (see charts below).  With the ClosureFast™ Procedure, the average patient typically resumes normal activities within a few days.1  For a few weeks following the treatment, your vein specialist may recommend a regular walking regimen and suggest you refrain from very strenuous activities (heavy lifting, for example) or prolonged periods of standing.


Most patients report a noticeable improvement in their symptoms within 1-2 weeks following the ClosureFast™ Procedure.  Most patients report limited to no scarring, bruising (ecchymosis), or swelling following the ClosureFast™ Procedure.



As with all medical procedures, there is a chance that complications may occur, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Hematoma
  • Vessel perforation
  • Thrombosis
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Phlebitis
  • Infection
  • Adjacent nerve injury
  • Skin burn or discoloration
