What Is VenaSeal™, and How Does It Work?

Featured Image

Varicose veins are easier to treat now than ever before, thanks to the latest breakthroughs in modern medicine. One innovative solution that can help treat varicose veins is VenaSeal. This procedure seals or closes diseased veins and moves blood to other healthy veins, and reduces the appearance of varicose veins with very little discomfort.

Our board-certified surgeons at Vitality Vein Care in Prosper, TX are proud to offer the VenaSeal solution to patients dealing with varicose veins near Frisco, Plano, McKinney, Celina, Gunter, Aubrey, Little Elm, or Pilot Point, TX.

Understanding what makes VenaSeal unique

VenaSeal is a practice that closes varicose veins without requiring sedatives or anesthesia. The treatment is for people who have varicose veins that are painful and are triggering swelling.

The procedure seals the veins and keeps blood from entering those areas. The blood moves toward other veins that aren’t damaged, allowing the damaged veins to weaken and eventually fade.

The practice is easier to manage because no anesthesia is required. It does not produce as much pain or bruising as a thermal ablation procedure. The recovery time is also minimal, as you can return to regular activities about one or two days after treatment. You won’t even need to wear compression socks following your procedure.

You also won’t require too much work to treat your veins. VenaSeal works with about 2 – 3 treatments per patient, on average, with the treatments scheduled about a month apart. Our experts at Vitality Vein Care in Prosper, TX can prepare a treatment schedule that fits whatever unique needs you may have.

How the process works

Here’s a look at how the VenaSeal process works:

  1. An adhesive material enters an impacted vein. A small catheter will enter the area to apply the adhesive. The site will be cleaned from the outside at the start, but the spot will be minimal and thin enough that no anesthesia is necessary.

  2. Pressure is applied to the leg. The pressure helps the vein connect with the adhesive, allowing the vein to seal itself up.

  3. The catheter is then removed from the vein. The adhesive should still be inside the body.

  4. A bandage will go over the access site to protect the spot.

  5. After a few weeks, the adhesive will start to dissolve as the vein weakens and dies off. The blood that used to go through the vein will begin entering other veins in the local area.

The practice is simple and doesn’t produce as much pressure as you might assume. You will appreciate how well it works when finding a treatment plan you can trust.
