Varicose Vein Treatment
Reliable VenaSeal Treatments by Dr. Varu in Cedar Park
If you suffer from unsightly, achy varicose veins, our practiced vein surgeon
is here to help. Varicose veins are dark, usually twisted veins that often
swell and become visible just under the skin. This issue often occurs
after the veins have been damaged in some way, causing a back-up in blood
flow, making the veins swell. Varicose veins can impact people of all
ages, genders, and body types, and can cause swelling, aches, pains, cramping,
itchiness, and discoloration around the affected area.

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.

and removal of varicose veins. After your initial consultation, we will

methods. From laser treatment and endogenous ablation therapy to Sclerotherapy,

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
around 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.
