Learn about VenaSeal: The New Nonsurgical Treatment for Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are more than just unsightly. They’re a sign that the vein valves in your legs are dysfunctional. Circulatory problems often get worse over time if left untreated. Fortunately, there’s a simple outpatient procedure that effectively closes bad veins.

Through his premier practice, Surgical Care East, vascular surgeon Dennis E. Resetarits, MD, offers men and women in Onondaga County, New York, the highest quality vascular care. For patients with varicose veins, Dr. Resetarits uses VenaSeal™, the latest innovative treatment. 

Read on to learn how this nonsurgical advancement in varicose vein treatment eliminates varicose veins.

What are varicose veins?

Varicose veins are twisted, bulging veins that most often develop in the legs as a result of damaged or weakened vein valves and walls. 

Increased pressure from pregnancy, obesity, hypertension, and straining during bowel movements raises the risk of varicose veins. Your risk of developing varicose veins increases if a close relative has the condition.

Veins have one-way valves that open and close to keep blood flowing in one direction toward the heart. Weakened or damaged valves fail to open and shut efficiently, causing blood to pool. The increased pressure of the pooled blood causes vein walls to weaken, resulting in bulging that’s visible in veins close to the surface of the skin. 


If you have varicose veins, you have several minimally invasive treatment options. The VenaSeal closure system is the newest option. It follows the same principle as other varicose vein treatments: It closes off varicose veins and diverts blood to healthy veins. 

VenaSeal uses a medical adhesive to close off varicose veins, instead of heat or a sclerosant (irritant) used in other treatments.

What does VenaSeal treatment involve?

When you visit us for VenaSeal varicose vein treatment, Dr. Resetarits uses ultrasound guidance to insert a small catheter into the affected vein and deliver the special medical adhesive that closes off the vein. 

Most of our patients feel nothing more than a tugging sensation and remain comfortable for the duration of the procedure. 

What are the benefits of VenaSeal?

VenaSeal reduces the risk of nerve damage, which can sometimes occur with other treatments. Additionally, VenaSeal requires only one injection, reducing pain and bruising, and speeding recovery. Other varicose vein treatments require multiple injections. 

You can resume your normal daily activities following the procedure. A small bandage covers the incision and protects it as it heals. There’s no discomfort during VenaSeal treatment, unlike treatments that use heat and may cause a burning sensation.

Other treatments also require compression stockings, which apply pressure to your legs to maintain good blood flow. Compression stockings are not required following VenaSeal treatment, though Dr. Resetarits may recommend them. 

Taking advantage of VenaSeal varicose vein treatment

VenaSeal is a highly successful, minimally invasive varicose vein treatment that requires zero downtime. With the ability to return to work and your regular activities, you won’t need to take time off or plan for an extended recovery. 

If you have varicose veins, we have you covered. To learn more about VenaSeal treatment for your varicose veins, call our Camillus, New York, office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Resetarits or book online today.
