Everything you need to know about VenaSeal

July 6, 2018 • Desert Vein Institute • Vein Treatment

VenaSeal is a vein treatment available to people with varicose veins. This option offers several advantages over other procedures that make it ideal for many patients with this condition. Below is some basic information about VenaSeal and the benefits it provides. 

What Is VenaSeal?

The VenaSeal closure system is non-tumescent, non-sclerosant and non-thermal. Instead, this procedure utilizes a medical adhesive to close varicose veins and eliminate them from view.

During the procedure, the surgeon will inject the special adhesive into the affected veins. This adhesive seals the veins shut, directing the blood to healthier veins in the area. Over time, the abnormal veins will fade from view.

Benefits of VenaSeal

Some of the primary benefits of VenaSeal include:

  • No risk of damaging nerves – Thermal-based procedures can potentially damage nerves when certain veins are treated. VenaSeal does not pose the risk.

  • No anesthesia – VenaSeal doesn’t require general or tumescent anesthesia, which reduces the incidence of side effects and complications.

  • Safe and effective – Studies have shown that VenaSeal treatment is both safe and effective in the treatment of varicose veins.

  • Flexible – VenaSeal can be used to treat most cases of varicose veins, regardless of their size or location. 

  • Fewer visits – VenaSeal allows for the treatment of multiple veins in one visit, which can eliminate the need for multiple visits and allow patients to get the treatment they need faster. 

Seeking Treatment

If you have varicose veins, you may benefit from treatment with VenaSeal. However, other treatment options are also available, such as laser vein treatment and ClosureFast. The best way to find out which treatment is best for you is to make an appointment with an experienced vein doctor who can examine your abnormal veins, evaluate your overall vein health and make an appropriate recommendation that is customized to meet your needs.
