VenaSeal Closure System

How does VenaSeal work?

Your VenaSeal treatment starts with a personalized consultation at our vein clinics in New Jersey. Our vein doctors examine your leg veins, discuss your goals and symptoms, review your medical history, and administer vascular imaging tests to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins. Duplex ultrasound tests reveal the direction of blood flow in your leg veins, thus revealing the presence or absence of chronic venous insufficiency. VenaSeal is only recommended for patients with chronic venous insufficiency.

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.

Candidates for VenaSeal

Only a reliable vein doctor can determine if you’re a candidate for VenaSeal after performing thorough examinations and tests. If you’re wondering about your candidacy for VenaSeal, please schedule a consultation at our vein clinics in New Jersey. Our vein doctors will administer advanced vascular imaging tests to determine the direction of blood circulation in your leg veins, which will reveal if you have chronic venous insufficiency. Most patients with vein disease qualify as candidates for VenaSeal, but you can only know for sure after an assessment.

The Pros & Cons of VenaSeal

VenaSeal: recovery and aftercare

VenaSeal is an in-office, outpatient procedure without any downtime or recovery period. Most patients seek vein treatment during their lunch break, and then resume their daily activities and work immediately. You don’t have to wear ACE bandages or compression stockings, and you can also go swimming after the vein treatment.

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 has a 99% success rate, and it treats the root cause of varicose veins and spider veins, i.e., chronic venous insufficiency. Since the treatment is almost always successful and involves a negligible risk of vein disease recurrence, you don’t need to worry about needing additional treatments down the line. You might need sclerotherapy to remove the unwanted spider veins from the skin’s surface, but that’s an elective, cosmetic procedure.

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.

The vein doctors at our state-of-the-art vein clinics in New Jersey have performed hundreds of minimally invasive spider vein and varicose vein treatments.
