Yes that is the purpose. If the vein is bad your circulation should be improved.

Yes, endovenous ablation destroys the treated vein. You must understand that this is an abnormal vein with reflux that is the cause of your varicosities and symptoms. By ablating the poorly function vein, venous blood is re-routed to the deep venous system which hopefully functioning well. This improves your venous circulation and that is why symptoms improve.

Ablation of a saphenous vein which refluxes actually improves the venous circulation of blood out of the leg by eliminating the downward leak of blood through the saphenous vein.

When the great saphenous vein is refluxing (leaking) it causes pooling of blood in the lower extremity. By ablating it, the venous circulation improves and relieves the pooling.

Endovenous ablation does destroy the saphenous vein by heating the wall of the vein causing it to clot and ultimately be reabsorbed by the body. After this is done, the blood in the leg is pushed into the deep veins as the muscles contract. This should actually improve your venous circulation.

There are more than 54000 miles of veins, capillaries and arteries in the body. Ablating the saphenous vein therefore has little effect on your circulation except for relieving you of venous reflux.
