VenaSeal™ is an effective, innovative solution treat spider veins and varicose veins. It uses a specially designed medical-grade adhesive to close off problem veins and restore healthy circulation to your legs.
The procedure is performed in-office at Surgical Care East, PLLC. Dr. Resetarits numbs the treatment area, then inserts a thin catheter (tube) through your skin. He injects a small quantity of VenaSeal™ into the affected vein, which seals the vein off permanently.
After having VenaSeal™ treatment, the veins gradually break down and disappear. Blood that used to go along the closed veins finds another route, so your circulation improves.
Spider veins are tiny blood vessels just under your skin, forming red, blue, or purple networks that can resemble spider webs. They're usually just a cosmetic issue, although having spider veins is an indication that you might develop varicose veins in the future.
Varicose veins are similar in color to spider veins but much larger. They may protrude from your skin and form twisting, coiling shapes that cause symptoms such as:
Without treatment, varicose veins may start to leak fluid into the surrounding tissues, causing leg swelling. The skin over the veins can deteriorate and weaken, giving rise to open sores (venous ulcers) that are often resistant to healing.
VenaSeal™ treatment restores the appearance of your legs and improves circulation, so you can avoid the complications vein disease can cause.
VenaSeal™ has distinct advantages over other treatments for spider veins and varicose veins.
You won't need downtime after the procedure and can return to exercising a week afterward. You won't need to wear compression stockings, either, and VenaSeal™ causes less discomfort than other vein disease treatments.
Vein disease can affect you at any age, no matter your gender or race. It's a common, treatable condition, but it’s typically progressive and might cause serious complications without treatment.
