VenaSeal is one of the biggest breakthroughs in minimally-invasive treatment of varicose veins in the last 15 years. It is a major advancement in treating vein insufficiency, varicose veins, and other vein diseases. When veins don’t work properly, they do not sufficiently return blood from the legs up to the heart, which can result in pain, aching, heaviness, cramping, swelling, itchiness or tingling in the legs. VenaSeal treatment for varicose veins can seal off the damaged veins and reroute blood through healthier veins. The treatment is designed for varicose veins that produce mild to moderate symptoms such as pain, blood clots, or skin ulcers. Patients find relief from varicose veins with this non-surgical procedure and resume activities the same day.
How Does VenaSeal Treatment for Varicose Veins Work?
- One of the skilled and experienced doctors at Precision VIR will numb the site, and then insert a catheter. You may only feel a slight prick or sting from the single needle.
- Through the catheter and guided by ultrasound, the VenaSeal adhesive, like a superglue, is precisely injected into the damaged veins.
- You doctor will apply a bit of pressure to the area to ensure that the vein is sealed shut.
- The catheter is then removed, a bandage is applied, and you will begin to feel immediate relief.
The entire procedure only takes about 20 minutes. Recovery is short, side effects are minimal, if any, and the results are permanent.
Benefits of VenaSeal Treatment for Varicose Veins
If you are a candidate for VenaSeal, there are so many advantages to the procedure. Here are our top five:
- Minimally invasive – VenaSeal treatment for varicose veins is an outpatient procedure without anesthesia—just a bit of numbing at the catheter insertion site. There is usually only one small incision—avoiding discomfort associated with multiple needle sticks. Recovery times are practically non-existent; most patients are back to their regular activities immediately. Likely, you can even drive yourself home from Precision VIR’s office.
- Multiple veins can be treated at once – That saves you time because you don’t need to come back for additional treatment appointments. You’ll have to take less time off from work or other commitments. And you’ll feel relief from your symptoms completely, not in stages.
- No heat – Since VenaSeal treatment for varicose veins uses a “super-glue” like medical adhesive, there are no heat nor thermal sealants involved. That helps recovery time, too. It also reduces the risk of injuring surrounding tissue. VenaSeal also has minimal to no bruising in most patients. You will leave your appointment with a Band-Aid and healthier legs!
- Compression stockings aren’t required post procedure* – Most of our patients who qualify patients are thrilled that they don’t have to deal with the inconvenience of wearing compression stockings.
- Minimal discomfort – One of the best benefits of all is that VenaSeal treatment for varicose veins has minimal discomfort during the entire procedure. No pain, no gain? Not with VenaSeal! With clinical trials showing a success rate of 92-99%, you won’t feel pain, but you will certainly have a lot to gain! You’ll have almost immediate relief from the heaviness, achiness and discomfort of your vein condition.
