Varicose veins are a medical condition that occurs when your leg veins are not able to properly circulate blood throughout the body. This malfunction will lead to enlarged and lumpy veins becoming visible through the skin. The circulation problems associated with varicose veins can also lead to pain and discomfort if left untreated for an extended period of time.
One of the best ways to treat varicose veins is by permanently closing them with VenaSeal™. Once the problematic veins are completely closed, blood will be able to properly circulate throughout the body thanks to the other leg veins. Sealing off the damaged vein and promoting normal blood flow will remove all of the painful symptoms you are experiencing in your legs.
Your VenaSeal™ appointment will include an ultrasound exam of your legs. This will allow the doctor to see inside your veins to determine the best possible plan for your treatment. The vein access site on your body will be numbed. Once the numbing effect has taken effect, a catheter will be placed into your leg. You may feel some pressure once the catheter is inserted.
An ultrasound will be used to help guide the catheter through the problematic vein. Small amounts of medication will be placed inside the vein during this process. Once enough medication has been administered, the catheter will be removed from your leg. The medication works instantly, so the diseased vein will be permanently sealed once the catheter is taken out of the body.
Soon after your VenaSeal™ procedure is finished, you will be allowed to go home. Since there are no incisions used in this procedure, there is virtually no recovery time with VenaSeal™. It is also entirely safe to resume your normal activities the same day as your treatment.
Your body will naturally absorb the medical adhesive using during your VenaSeal™ treatment, but you do not have to worry about the vein opening up at any time in the future. The absorption of the adhesive is also safe on the body, so there will be no harmful side effects. Due to the nature of the VenaSeal™ treatment process, you will experience almost no discomfort following the procedure. The instant results and lack of any side effects makes VenaSeal™ a great choice for anyone who wishes to quickly remove their painful varicose veins.
