At Mimi Lee, MD in Little Rock, AR, we are vein experts. We are passionate about staying on top of the latest and most proven treatments for varicose veins, spider veins, and other vascular conditions. For the last several years, we have been excited to offer our patients Venaseal, a revolutionary medical-grade glue that can solve the problem of visible veins right at its source. So, how does this treatment work and how effective is it?
How Effective Is Venaseal?
If you are ready to improve your vascular health, the most important thing to consider when comparing treatments is how effective they are. Venaseal has undergone extensive testing in the US and Europe for over 5 years, and multiple studies have shown it to be over 98% effective in closing and eliminating problem veins.
Understanding Vascular Conditions
Who Gets Them and Why?
Visible veins start to occur on formerly clear legs and other parts of the body for several reasons. Changes in pressure, weight gain, hormonal fluctuations, and pregnancy are all contributing factors.
What Happens Internally?
In healthy veins, you will find little gateways that direct blood flow in one (and only one) direction. When you have a vascular condition, these gateways break, causing the blood to either pool or travel in two directions as opposed to one. At that point, the vein becomes visible through the skin.
Sometimes, these problem veins appear fine and net-like. In more severe situations, they can cause:
- A dark purple color
- Muscle aches
How This Treatment Works
Sealing the Veins To Eliminate Them
Unfortunately, our bodies do not have their own process for correcting this problem. Once a vein is broken, it will not repair itself on its own. However, Venaseal can help. This treatment consists of the application of a glue that seals off the diseased veins. It is formulated as a cyanoacrylate, a type of adhesive that is also used in cosmetic surgery, dental work, ophthalmic surgery, and many other applications.
After the vein has been sealed, the blood that would have entered it is rechanneled into alternative vascular pathways. Your body will then process the vein away, and it will disappear from the surface of your skin.
During the Appointment
The actual appointment itself does not take very much time. You will come into our office and your treatment area will be cleaned. Next, a very fine catheter will be gently inserted, allowing us to apply the adhesive. The application only takes about 15 minutes, and that’s it! There is no prescribed down time, so you will be able to get on with your life and work almost immediately.
Benefits of VenaSeal
It Is Highly Effective
With this treatment, you don’t need to compromise when it comes to comfort, convenience, and effectiveness. It is a proven way to eliminate visible veins and benefit your circulation with an easy, fast appointment. After the problem vein is sealed, your body will be able to correct the vascular issue, re-routing blood flow to healthy veins and clearing the surface of your skin.
It Uses Safe, Medical-Grade Adhesive
The glue used in this treatment is created with an advanced formula that has many advantages when used internally. First, it seals quickly at the target site, without spreading into other areas. Second, it is highly flexible, making it undetectable as you are moving around. Third, it has anti-microbial properties.
There Is No Down Time or Compression Stockings
If you have been putting off vein treatments because you aren’t looking forward to taking time off work or wearing compression stockings, this treatment is the one for you. Since there is no surgery, heat, or laser energy, there is nothing about the process that would cause your body the need to recover. You won’t even need to wear compression stockings, which are standard for some other treatments.
You Can Look Forward to Great Results
Maybe you have been holding off on shorts, waiting for your problem veins to go away. Maybe you just want your legs to look the way they did before the veins appeared. Or perhaps you are seeking to cure the itching and aching that can occur with veins that are diseased. In any case, this treatment is an excellent way to treat the issue with a medical solution that has a high rate of success.
