The VenaSeal Closure System is the only procedure that uses adhesive agents to treat abnormal veins—and it’s the only one that doesn’t cause pain or swelling.
Most vein treatment options involve a sclerosant that acts as an irritant within the vein(s). The solution is injected directly into the vein, which inflames the lining of the blood vessel and causes it to collapse.
How the VenaSeal Closure System works
While many vein treatment options are available, like laser ablation and MOCA (Clarivein), innovative new treatment options, like VenaSeal, are now available thanks to recent technological advancements in medicine.
VenaSeal uses a similar technique as laser ablation or MOCA (Clarivein). The adhesive agent goes into the larger, invisible veins under the surface of the skin that feed into the varicose veins. It’s a quick, minimally invasive and painless procedure that takes approximately 15 minutes per treated vein.
Benefits of VenaSeal
This innovative treatment option for vein disease eliminates the risk of thermal nerve injury, which is a known risk associated with certain thermal-based (laser) procedures. Additional benefits of VenaSeal include:
- Minimally invasive
Only one needle stick is required to administer the adhesive and post-procedure compression stockings are (typically) not required.
- Faster recovery
This innovative treatment option for vein disease is specifically designed to allow rapid return to normal activities. Compression stockings are typically not required following treatment and people report lower levels of post-procedure discomfort as compared to other treatment options (e.g., radiofrequency ablation or endovenous laser treatment).
- Clinically demonstrated results
The VenaSeal Closure System is backed by multiple clinical studies with demonstrated safety and high closure rates.
