VenaSeal Closure System
How does VenaSeal work?
During the VenaSeal procedure, the vein doctor administers local anesthesia to numb the skin’s surface and make a small incision. The incision serves as an entry point for a catheter that’s driven into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. Once the catheter is lodged in place, the vein doctor delivers the vein glue to seal the diseased vein’s walls shut. The diseased vein hardens into scar tissues eventually absorbed by the body, and the accumulated blood reroutes into healthier leg veins.
VenaSeal is a simple, in-office procedure that concludes within an hour with no downtime. You don’t even have to wear ACE bandages or compression stockings, unlike most other vein treatments. VenaSeal doesn’t involve any risk of nerve injuries because it doesn’t involve laser or thermal energy. Furthermore, most patients can resume their daily activities and work, including swimming and bathing, immediately after the VenaSeal procedure.

The Pros & Cons of VenaSeal
VenaSeal: recovery and aftercare
The treatment area on your legs may feel firm and slightly irritated, but that’s perfectly normal. VenaSeal seals the diseased vein’s walls, turning it into a hardened tissue that can be felt through your skin. Over time, your body will naturally absorb the diseased vein, and the firmness will dissipate.
Do I need other vein treatments?
VenaSeal is one of the most effective treatments for patients with busy lives. You can easily schedule the treatment during your work lunch break, and then resume your daily activities and work without delay. That’s why most of our patients schedule VenaSeal treatments during the midday period.
