Advantages of VenaSeal® Vein Treatment

Varicose veins affect millions of Americans. This common manifestation of venous disease can lead to decreased confidence, discomfort, pain and other unwanted side effects.

The cause of varicose veins can typically be traced back to an inherited disposition to developing them (which is why they are common in men and women) as well as pregnancies (which is why they are more common in women).

Ultimately the underlying problem relates to improper, wrong-way flow within superficial veins that have malfunctioning valves. This improper flow allows blood to pool within stretchy veins and ultimately cause veins to bulge on the surface of the skin (varicose veins).

VenaSeal® represents a new way to treat improper flow in veins that can lead to varicose veins. It differs from other treatments in the unique way it polymerizes within the vein, which in turn provides a reliable way to treat large varicose veins.

How Does VenaSeal® Work?

The first step to understanding the benefits of VenaSeal® is to understand how this procedure works. It utilizes a special polymer (medical glue) that causes the vein walls to permanently stick together. This polymer effectively seals the vein shut. This forces the blood to find an alternate route instead of pooling within the leg.

The Advantages of VenaSeal® for Treating Varicose Veins

The unique nature of VenaSeal® treatments afford it a few unique advantages.

These advantages include:

• No need to use heat to seal incompetent veins. The use of heat with traditional endovenous laser ablation or radiofrequency ablation requires the use of extra local anesthetic; it’s the placement of local anesthetic that causes discomfort during these procedures. Non-heat treatments such as VenaSeal® require minimal local anesthetic.

• Lasting success – VenaSeal® has been shown to have similar efficacy as endovenous thermal ablation.

• Quick treatments – VenaSeal® procedures can be performed within 90 minutes

• Minimal bruising
