What is VenaSeal?
VenaSeal is the most recent and innovative varicose vein treatment available. With almost no downtime, this treatment is perfect if you want to get rid of varicose veins without interrupting your daily life. VenaSeal uses a medical adhesive to close your defective vein. This process doesn’t use anesthetic, is virtually pain-free, and is minimally invasive. Most procedures require compression stockings to be worn after your treatment, but with VenaSeal, you won’t have to. You can be on your way immediately after your treatment is done and reduce the risk of bruising or soreness after the procedure.
When Should I Get the VenaSeal Treatment?
There are several symptoms that may occur if you have varicose veins. If you are experiencing any of these, it is important to see a doctor and determine the best treatment option for you. The most common symptoms of varicose veins include:
- Veins that appear to be twisted or bulging, and may also be dark purple or blue in color
- An achy or heavy feeling in the legs
- Pain, swelling, itching, burning or cramping in the legs
- Bleeding veins, ulcers or skin inflammation
- Restless Legs Syndrome
We have doctors with years of experience recommending the best treatment options. We have several different treatment options, with VenaSeal among them. After most treatments, compression stockings are required to be worn for a short period of time, but with VenaSeal compression stockings are unneccessary. Because of this, VenaSeal is a great treatment option any time of year.
Now that VenaSeal is being covered by Medicare, it is the perfect time to get treatment for your varicose veins. Contact us today to get your treatment scheduled!
