What is a Varicose Vein?

Most commonly found in the legs and ankles, varicose veins should not be ignored. Although this condition is not generally serious, it may lead to more serious problems. Varicose veins result from damaged or weakened valves and veins in the body. The pooling of blood entering the veins causes extreme swelling. Some of the most common factors that increase the risk of varicose veins include age, gender, injuries, weight, genetics, immobility, pregnancy, and previous DVTs.

The VenaSeal Procedure

In the past, doctors have used ablation procedures to heat the veins to reduce signs of varicose veins. However, new technology introduced through the VenaSeal procedure now enables surgeons to treat varicose veins through a less invasive method. VenaSeal is a medical grade glue used in this procedure to glue down the main defective vein. Gluing down this vein will not hurt your blood flow because blood will then be redirected to other healthy veins, leaving your sealed vein useless. After this vein has been shut, it will harden and eventually be absorbed by the body.

The glue used in this varicose vein treatment is medical grade and has recently been approved by the FDA and Medicare. The same materials used in the VenaSeal glue has been used in various other areas of medicine since the 1950’s and is not known to have any negative side effects on the body.

Benefits of VenaSeal

VenaSeal is noninvasive and offers an overall faster recovery time than other varicose vein treatments. Patients may experience mild discomfort VenaSealaround the site of the VenaSeal injection and around the affected veins for a few weeks, but recovery is usually very quick. Unlike with ablation treatments, patients do not need to wear compression socks after treatment, and they do not run the risk of burns and similar adverse effects.

Many patients experience positive, visible results within the first month, though the results may improve over the duration of 6 months.
