Do your legs feel heavy, tired, or swollen at the end of the day? These symptoms may be caused by venous insufficiency such as varicose veins, and at Fox Vein Experts our VenaSeal™ treatments can help clear these deficient veins from your skin using the latest micro-invasive, ultrasound-guided technology.
What is VenaSeal™?
Traditionally, twisted or protruding varicose veins near the surface of the skin have been treated with extensive procedures that required a recovery period and downtime. But major advances in vascular medicine now make it possible for these veins to be treated without any disruption to your normal activities.
VenaSeal™ requires a small point of entry in the skin, which is typically too small to require sutures. It targets varicose veins in the legs where blood has begun to pool, stretching these vessels out and causing them to visibly protrude from the skin. A very thin catheter is inserted into the tiny entry in the skin and is positioned in the affected vein, allowing for proper dispersal of the VenaSeal® medical adhesive.
How Does VenaSeal™ Work?
In order to ensure accuracy and precision during treatment, Dr. Fox and our medical team utilize ultrasound-guided technology to properly position the catheter. Along with gentle compression on the treated vein, the VenaSeal™ adhesive permanently seals the vein, rerouting blood through healthier veins and improving overall blood circulation in your leg. Although varicose veins can be asymptomatic, leaving these untreated can lead to more serious complications over time. VenaSeal™ has been tested and approved for safety and efficacy by the FDA and allows for quicker healing and recovery than heat-based therapies.
