Spider and varicose veins represent two similar vein problems that can be unsightly and painful. They can make you cover up otherwise beautiful features of your body because you feel ashamed due to the presence of these conditions.
Treatments for these conditions, while considered effective in most cases, bring a number of unwanted side effects. They may be painful, uncomfortable for the patient, or require a large recovery period to ensure the stability of the treatment.
VenaSeal™ exists as an emerging alternative to these treatments. It can quickly resolve vein-related issues with significantly fewer injections, less anesthetic than other treatments, and reduced appointment times.
Understanding Spider and Varicose Veins
Spider and varicose veins are two very similar conditions. They develop due to increased blood flow in the veins, genetics or another condition that forces the walls of the veins to be pushed outwards.
While normally veins would return to normal, the veins begin to retain this expanded shape. This leads to the visible and physical symptoms associated with these conditions.
While treatments like compression and creams can help minimize the appearance of these effects, they may only do so temporarily. The symptoms will emerge once the veins and the surrounding tissue return to normal.
The only effective way to permanently treat these conditions was through surgical means.
The Problem with Traditional Treatments
Traditional treatments involve blocking the flow of blood in the veins. This can be accomplished through injecting a foam-like substance that initiates clotting in the veins, or it can be done by destroying the veins in such a way that induces clotting.
The problem with these procedures is that they tend to be uncomfortable, and they can even be painful. This can require significantly more anesthetic to be injected at the treatment site.
This pain can continue to persist after treatment has been completed. It can translate to soreness, tenderness and swelling.
VenaSeal™: A Better Alternative for Treating Vein Conditions
VenaSeal™ approaches the idea of “sealing” veins in a way that is remarkably different than traditional methods use. It adheres the walls of the vein together, providing for a permanent closing of the veins. This can resolve vein conditions in a way that is more convenient and lasts longer than traditional treatments.
