After receiving a diagnostic ultrasound from the team at Central Florida Vein and Vascular Center, our specialists may recommend Venaseal treatment at one of our three locations: Ocoee, Kissimmee, or The Villages. This new, minimally-invasive procedure uses medical glue to seal varicose veins. Here’s what you can expect from this treatment.
Venaseal Therapy for Varicose Vein Treatment
During Venaseal treatments, a specialist will use an ultrasound to map out the varicose veins. After using local anesthesia, they’ll insert a small catheter into the affected vein in the leg. The Venaseal medical glue will be applied, causing the varicose vein to seal shut, which causes no harm to blood flow as blood is automatically routed to healthy veins. The sealed vein will harden and be absorbed by the body, effectively removing the vein without scarring. Depending on the patient’s needs, two or more veins may be treated at once.
After the Venaseal Procedure
Patients experience no downtime from this minimally invasive procedure and can return to their day-to-day activities immediately following treatment. It is normal to feel a small amount of soreness in the leg after a few days but patients normally don’t need to take pain medication or use compression stockings.
