Varicose veins can be uncomfortable and unsightly. Procedures to eliminate or offer relief to varicose veins are known to be costly, require days of recovery, and result in tissue damage to the area surrounding the affected vein. But what if they didn’t have to be?
Here at The Vein Clinic, we offer the VenaSeal™ system in response to the negative repercussions of other varicose vein treatments. This system is revolutionary in the way that it treats problem veins and that it is a non-tumescent, non-thermal, and non-sclerosant procedure. The treatment is completed with a local, single-needle anesthetic. An ultrasound is used in the numbed area around the varicose vein to guide a catheter to the damaged parts of the veins. The catheter then ejects medical adhesive to the damaged vein.
The benefits of using the VenaSeal™ system are great. We’ve compiled them into a list for easy reading:
- Eliminated risk of nerve injury
- Safe and effective
- Removes unsightly varicose veins
- Minimally invasive
- Same-day recovery in which the patient can resume all normal activities
These benefits and many more are reason enough to choose the VenaSeal™ over any other varicose vein treatment. In fact, almost any other varicose vein treatments available today require multiple days of recovery and can be a cause of nerve or tissues damage.
Just as there are a wide range of benefits to the VenaSeal™, there are some risks that come along with this treatment, though they are minimal. Some of these possible side effects of the treatment include:
- Potential skin irritation from the VenaSeal™ system’s adhesive
- Minor bleeding from insertion area
- Temporary vein inflammation
- Inflammation of the skin
- A general tingling or burning at the insertion area
Experience the Benefits of the VenaSeal™ System
While there are some risks that come along with using the the VenaSeal™ system, they are vastly outweighed by the chances of nerve and tissue damage that are associated with almost any other type of varicose vein treatment. The benefits of this system are incredible, and the fact that patients can return to normal activity in the same day is unheard of in the realm of varicose vein treatments.
