How Does Venaseal Work?

The Venaseal closure system is a revolutionary Las Vegas vein treatment used to treat abnormal veins. This procedure is offered as an alternative to other vein treatment options, including laser vein treatment

What Is Venaseal?

Venaseal is a vein treatment procedure that uses a medical glue to treat varicose veins. This glue works by sealing off the abnormal vein. After the vein has been sealed off, it undergoes a hardening process and is ultimately absorbed by the body. All of your blood is rerouted to healthier veins, and your symptoms fade away. 

What Happens During the Procedure?

During the Venaseal procedure, the surgeon begins by using ultrasound to map out the veins in the affected area, which is usually your leg. Next, a local anesthetic will be applied to the skin above the vein, and your surgeon will insert a thin catheter. Using the catheter and a special applicator, your surgeon will administer the Venaseal glue to the inside of the targeted vein. 

After the procedure, you will be able to get up and walk immediately. You won’t need to wear a compression stocking, and you can resume most of your normal activity right away. However, you will need to avoid rigorous activity, such as intense exercise, for a small amount of time. Your surgeon will discuss all of these restrictions with you before you leave the clinic. 

Benefits of Venaseal

Venaseal offers a variety of benefits that make it a good choice for patients with abnormal veins. Venaseal is minimally-invasive, and the risk of side effects is very low. Serious complications are rare with this procedure, and you won’t need to be admitted to the hospital or placed under general anesthesia. In addition, Venaseal provides excellent results, improving the appearance of your abnormal veins and relieving any symptoms associated with these veins.
