VenaSeal

VenaSeal is an extremely efficient procedure with minimal post-treatment side effects and a negligible risk of complications. This is the only vein treatment wherein you don’t have to wear compression stockings or bandages after the procedure. Furthermore, since this treatment doesn’t involve thermal or laser energy, there’s no risk of harsh side effects or nerve injury.

What is VenaSeal?

VenaSeal is a minimally invasive procedure wherein a medical adhesive is used to treat chronic venous insufficiency, the circulatory disorder responsible for most vein problems. Venous insufficiency is a medical condition wherein the collapse of your vein valves makes blood flow backward (due to gravity) and accumulate in your leg veins. Some of the most common signs and symptoms of vein disease include spider veins, varicose veins, restless legs syndrome, leg heaviness, frequent leg cramps, and skin discoloration.

If you have the signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency, we encourage you to consult our board-certified and fellowship-trained vein doctors in New Jersey. They will examine your leg veins and review your medical history to determine if you’re a viable candidate for VenaSeal, one of the safest and most effective treatments for varicose veins and vein disease.

How Does VenaSeal Work?

VenaSeal Closure System is one of the most effective treatments for chronic venous insufficiency and varicose veins. During this procedure, your vein doctor will insert a catheter through a small incision on your skin’s surface under ultrasound guidance. Once the catheter is lodged in place, your vein doctor will inject a medical-grade adhesive into the problematic vein. This will promote fibrotic growth within the veins, making the diseased saphenous vein seal shut. The accumulated blood will reroute into healthier leg veins and the diseased vein will get reabsorbed by your body.

What are the Side Effects of VenaSeal?

VenaSeal is an extremely safe and effective procedure with a nearly perfect success rate.
The following are some of the potential side effects of VenaSeal:

  • Common Side Effects: Mild irritation and temporary firmness on the legs because of the hardened veins
  • Rare Side Effects: Allergic reactions, vascular perforation, or vascular rupture

 

VenaSeal is one of the safest vein treatments for chronic venous insufficiency, but, like all treatments, it involves the potential for risks. You can minimize the risks further by contacting one of our board-certified vein doctors in New Jersey.

What Happens After the VenaSeal Treatment?

VenaSeal is an outpatient procedure that doesn’t involve any downtime. You can resume all your daily activities and work immediately after the treatment. In fact, this is the only vein treatment that allows you to swim, take baths, and get your legs wet after the procedure. And you don’t have to wear compression stockings or ACE bandages, a common requirement after most other vein treatments. Most of our patients request this treatment during their lunch breaks because of its convenience.

While VenaSeal doesn’t involve any downtime, you should be prepared for mild firmness and irritation on your legs. That’s a common side effect caused by the hardening of your veins once they’re sealed shut. The firmness should dissipate once your vein is reabsorbed by the body.

Do I Need Other Treatments With VenaSeal?

VenaSeal doesn’t just treat varicose veins but also the underlying vein disease. That means VenaSeal treats the root cause of your vein problems, thereby minimizing the risk of vein disease recurrence. As such, you don’t need multiple VenaSeal treatments or other additional procedures.

Our patients absolutely love VenaSeal treatment, and the reason for that is pretty obvious. VenaSeal is a safe and comfortable procedure involving no harsh side effects, complications, downtime, or the need for compression stockings and ACE bandages. Furthermore, since it concludes within 30 minutes with no downtime, you can easily fit it into a busy schedule and then resume your daily activities.
