    This revolutionary, safe and minimally invasive varicose vein treatment uses medical adhesive to close diseased veins. Once the diseased vein is sealed, blood is immediately re-routed through other healthy veins in the leg and the affected varicose vein is gradually absorbed by the body.

    A small amount of anesthetic at the entry point is all that is required during this procedure. Our patients have called VenaSeal™ “a painless vein treatment.”

    Following VenaSeal™, it’s not necessary to wear compression stockings.

     

    This updated procedure uses heat to seal the diseased veins. The blood is then diverted from the sealed veins to healthy veins.

    During radiofrequency ablation, a local anesthetic is used to numb the affected area, so the procedure is painless. After the ablation is complete, your leg is wrapped in a compression bandage. Once this is removed, compression stockings are required.

     

    Liquid injection sclerotherapy uses a needle to inject a chemical agent into a diseased vein. The agent damages the vein wall, causing it to close and divert the blood to healthy veins. Compression stockings are required after this therapy.

     

    Compression stockings combined with leg elevation and regular exercise are the first treatment – and often successful way – used to address vein disease. Compression stockings compress the leg tissue around the veins to prevent blood from pooling. They are designed to help reduce associated aching and swelling. You may need to wear compression stockings for about six months before experiencing their full healing effect.
