Vein removal with no pain with VenaSeal
tired of unsightly and bulging veins?
VenaSeal™, which utilizes a safe and powerful medical adhesive to seal targeted veins, forcing blood to flow only through healthy vessels. By sealing vessels without heat, VenaSeal gives patients incredible results while lessening the risks of complications. For many patients, this groundbreaking new technology from Medtronic may be the perfect minimally invasive option.
The first step for patients receiving VenaSeal™ for their varicose veins is a thorough evaluation of the leg vessels. The entry site is chosen, and the area treated with local anesthetic to ensure minimal discomfort. A tiny puncture is made in the skin, through which the VenaSeal™ device may be inserted. The FDA-approved adhesive is then delivered along the entire length of the targeted vein, to guarantee complete closure.
After only 30 minutes, the average VenaSeal™ procedure is completed, and patients can resume their normal daily activities with only minimal recovery time. Rates of complications are much lower, as no heating element is involved, and only one needle stick is required. It is not necessary for patients to wear compression stockings after treatment with VenaSeal™. Instead, patients can live their lives with improved confidence and reduced symptoms.
- Little discomfort
- Fast procedure
- No downtime
- No compression stockings needed post-procedure
- Combinable with other vein procedures for maximum results
- Conducted in a comfortable, luxury medical setting
VenaSeal treats the following conditions
Spider veins are small veins that are red, purple or blue and resemble spider webs.
Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged veins. Any veins in the body may become varicose, but the veins most commonly affected are those in your legs and feet.
Chronic Vein Insufficiency
Chronic vein insufficiency occurs the valves in the veins are not working properly.
Sometimes venous insufficiency can lead to leg swelling, pain and cramping (also known as restless leg syndrome).
The best candidates for this procedure are patients who have symptoms like pain, cramping, swelling, burning, itchy sensation, or heaviness in their legs. Patients who present with visible spider or varicose veins may have underlying vein disease which would qualify for VenaSeal.
During VenaSeal anesthesia is applied to numb the area of the procedure site. A small incision is made on the leg and a small catheter is then inserted into the varicose vein that has venous insufficiency. Using a medical adhesive solution, the vein is sealed off. This procedure is minimally invasive and has a quick recovery time.
There is minimal discomfort with this procedure. An anesthetic is used on the leg of the patient in order to numb the inside of the leg so the patient has no pain. Patients are able to walk and return to their normal activities within the same day.
VenaSeal reduces discomfort and recovery time since it is the latest in vein removal technology. This special vein adhesive seals the vein and only with one needle stick to perform. Also, something else that is very unique is that is not necessary to use compression stocking after the procedure. It is unlike traditional procedures such as laser or radiofrequency that uses thermal energy, which need to have compression stockings used afterwards. Compared to heat procedures, the VenaSeal experience is less painful and results in less trauma or bruising. Patients may go back to their daily activities following the procedure.
Some potential risks include an allergic reaction to the adhesive, and phlebitis among others. However due to the minimal invasive technique and reduced recovery time, VenaSeal is a favorable treatment for venous insufficiency.
