VenaSeal Q & A

What is VenaSeal?

VenaSeal is a specially designed system that uses a medical adhesive to close varicose veins and treat venous insufficiency, the condition that causes varicose veins.

As the adhesive quickly seals the vein walls together, the vessels return to their normal size and your bulging, visible varicose veins disappear. VenaSeal is formulated to safely stay in your veins, keeping them closed and preventing future problems.

What are the benefits of VenaSeal?

Varicose veins can affect anyone, no matter your age, sex, or race. Medicaid and private insurance carriers recognize vein disease as a medical condition that is definitively diagnosed by ultrasound.

When it comes to eliminating varicose veins, you have treatment choices, notably sclerotherapy and radiofrequency ablation. So why go with VenaSeal?

The advantages of choosing VenaSeal over other options include:

  • You can return to activities the same day
  • There’s no tumescent anesthesia
  • There’s no risk of heat injuries
  • You don’t need to wear compression stockings
  • You get long-lasting results

Five years after receiving VenaSeal, 94.6% of patients studied still had great results and well-sealed veins.

What health concerns improve after my VenaSeal procedure?

After the veins are sealed, your body restores normal circulation by rerouting blood through healthy veins. Using VenaSeal to close the vein also does away with venous insufficiency.

Venous insufficiency develops when valves inside your leg veins weaken. The damaged valves let blood flow backward, going down the leg and accumulating in the vein.

The buildup of blood causes varicose veins and leads to serious complications in your lower leg, such as eczema-like rashes and nonhealing venous ulcers.

After your VenaSeal procedure, those issues may begin to heal. The treatment eliminates uncomfortable symptoms caused by varicose veins, including:

  • Itching
  • Fatigue
  • Burning
  • Leg pain
  • Tingling
  • Heaviness
  • Soreness
  • Throbbing
  • Cramping
  • Night cramps
  • Restless legs
  • Swollen legs
  • Discoloration of the skin 

What happens during a VenaSeal procedure?

Dr. White makes a small nick in your leg, just large enough to allow her to insert the slim VenaSeal catheter. Using real-time imaging to view your veins and the device, she guides the catheter to the end of the varicose vein.

During the procedure, she releases a drop of the adhesive, pulls the catheter back a short distance, and places a little more adhesive in the vein. Then she gently pushes against your leg above the treated area, applying just enough pressure to close the vein and seal the walls together.

Dr. White repeats this process until the entire vein is treated. Then she removes the catheter and places a bandage over the tiny incision.
