VenaSeal is an alternate treatment of choice for Varicose veins. It’s a non-thermal treatment option which enhances blood flow and relieves symptoms by sealing the diseased vein. During the procedure, a small amount of a specially formulated medical adhesive is delivered to the diseased vein by the VenaSeal system. The adhesive seals the vein and blood is rerouted through a near by healthier veins, hence, allowing complete relief of relieves the symptoms.
What to expect during VenaSeal?
Most patient feels a very little pain, if any, during the procedure. You might experience a slight discomfort from the tiny needle sticks. The adhesive that VenaSeal system delivers to the veins may cause a mild sensation of pulling.
