What Is Venaseal?
This technologically-advanced injectable treatment is an FDA-approved and a non-surgical solution for effectively diminishing varicose veins. Varicose veins are known to occur when there is a reversal in venous blood flow or reflux in the large and small saphenous vein. Other treatments work to surgically remove varicose veins, but run the risk of them coming back. However, Venaseal provides an effective solution for treating the underlying cause of varicose veins without an incision.
How Does It Work?
This is a unique solution that involves the closure of unhealthy veins without the need for tumescent local anesthesia or the risks associated with thermal-based closure treatments. The treatment first begins with a local anesthesia in order to ensure optimal patient comfort. The doctor can then insert a small catheter tube with the help of an ultrasound guide. There is minimal-discomfort involved in the process, with a reported feeling of sight pressure. Once the catheter is in the correct location, the Venaseal treatment adhesive is then injected at specific points. The vein is then closed through a specific method. This procedure successfully helps to redirect the blood to surrounding healthier veins. The remainder of the varicose vein then falls off and is removed from the body’s natural processes.
This highly effective treatment can successfully eliminate varicose veins without the need for a surgical procedure. If you are unsatisfied by the appearance of varicose veins, the advanced VenaSeal treatment could be the solution you have been searching for.
