Treatment for Varicose Veins With Minimal Recovery Time

Varicose veins can reduce an individual’s self-confidence and cause pain. VenaSeal uses a small amount of cyanoacrylate-based medical adhesive for the closure of saphenous veins. This new treatment is a non-tumescent, non-sclerosant and non-thermal procedure. This method provides an almost entirely pain-free treatment option.

How It Works

After an ultrasound of the area, VenaSeal, also known as sclerotherapy, uses a specifically designed adhesive to close the vein. This minimally invasive treatment is gentler than options that may physically remove or cauterize the targeted vein.  

During the procedure, a medical professional injects the vein with a specifically designed adhesive using a thin catheter to seal it off. Anesthesia is not required, and unlike a heat-based procedure, there is no risk for skin burns or nerve damage.

Expected Results

While it may take some time to see the desired results, this procedure allows patients to return to their daily lives quickly. There is little pain or discomfort during the outpatient healing process. There may be some slight bruising or soreness, but it should heal quickly. Unlike most varicose vein treatment options, there is no need for compression socks post-procedure.

Am I a Candidate?

VenaSeal is an extremely popular treatment plan for individuals suffering from varicose veins that would like to return to their daily lives as soon as possible. The success rate is high, but results often take longer than other, more invasive treatment methods. Another alluring factor is the lack of compression socks after the procedure.
