VenaSeal™ is different. It’s a medication that glues together the walls of disruptive veins, collapsing them safely and prompting absorption. Symptoms improve as soon as the vein is closed, though veins may take more time to disappear. Patients experience very little downtime with VenaSeal™ treatments, and the risk of complications, such as nerve injury, is lessened.
Spider veins appear near the surface like red, purple, or blue tree branches. While they can happen anywhere on the body, legs and face are the most common location. They can be hereditary or environmental from trauma, excessive standing, obesity, and exposure to UV rays or excessive heat. They require medical attention to determine if a more serious health concern.
Sclerotherapy is the recommended treatment. Medication collapses the insufficient veins by making their walls stick together. The body’s immune system naturally absorbs them as blood is rerouted to healthier vessels. Vein closure is immediate, but symptoms may take a few days or weeks to abate. Compression stockings are recommended following treatment.
