VenaSeal Q & A
What is VenaSeal?
VenaSeal is a treatment system for varicose veins. The VenaSeal procedure delivers a specially formulated medical adhesive into an enlarged, twisted vein to seal it off. Blood re-routes to nearby healthy veins, and the treated veins collapse naturally over time.
The team at the Centers for Pain Control and Vein Care also uses Varithena™ to treat spider veins and varicose veins. Varithena is an injectable foam that irritates and collapses damaged veins.
When should I consider treatment with VenaSeal?
VenaSeal and Varithena may be a treatment option for your varicose veins if you’re bothered by the appearance of the bulging, twisted veins in your legs. You can also treat spider veins with Varithena if you’re unhappy with the noticeable veins on your skin’s surface.
You may also wish to undergo a VenaSeal or Varithena procedure if you have pain or leg heaviness due to enlarged varicose veins.
The vein specialists at the Centers for Pain Control and Vein Care can evaluate your vascular health to determine if VenaSeal or Varithena is the best option for your needs.
What can I expect during a VenaSeal procedure?
Your provider at the Centers for Pain Control and Vein Care performs VenaSeal procedures in a comfortable office environment.
You can expect to lie still on an exam table while your provider delivers the VenaSeal adhesion into the vein through a small catheter. They apply pressure to the treatment area to help seal the vein shut before removing the catheter.
The incision to insert the catheter is very small and you only need a bandage to cover the wound. You can expect to get back to your usual activities quickly after your treatment.
What are the benefits of VenaSeal?
The VenaSeal system is a simple outpatient procedure that addresses the underlying cause of enlarged, bulging veins by destroying the damaged vessel.
VenaSeal is less painful than phlebectomy and other varicose vein procedures. Your risk for bruising is also minimal.
You can expect to recover faster than you might with other treatments and won’t need to wear compression stockings after your VenaSeal procedure.
