What is the VenaSeal™ Procedure?
VenaSeal™ uses a specially formulated injectable adhesive to treat diseased veins. The adhesive, via endovenous delivery, permanently seals the vein shut, restoring healthy circulation and blood flow. This unique treatment removes varicose veins close to the skin's surface permanently. VenaSeal® may also be used to close the main veins in the leg that cause varicose veins.

How does the VenaSeal™ work in treating varicose veins?
VenaSeal™ takes a straightforward yet effective approach to treating varicose veins.
Before starting, the doctor applies a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area. This ensures the procedure is comfortable and pain-free for the patient.
With the help of an ultrasound, the doctor can see the veins clearly. This ensures the catheter and adhesive are placed precisely where they need to be.
The main part of the treatment involves inserting a catheter into the vein and using the special adhesive to seal it. Once sealed, the diseased vein is effectively closed off.
Leg Feel Better
After the vein is sealed, the body naturally reroutes blood to other healthy veins. This restores proper circulation and alleviates symptoms of varicose veins.

Frequently asked questions at our San Diego varicose vein treatment center
The cost of the VenaSeal™ procedure varies based on several factors including the severity of the venous disease, the number of veins needing treatment, and any associated consultations or follow-up care. It's best to schedule an in-depth assessment with our specialists to obtain an accurate estimate tailored to your unique condition.
Many insurance providers cover VenaSeal™ when it is deemed medically necessary due to symptomatic venous insufficiency. Prior authorization is often required, and our administrative team is adept at assisting with insurance queries to determine your coverage specifics.
Clinical studies have demonstrated VenaSeal™'s efficacy with a remarkable closure rate nearing 99% at six months post-procedure. It's important to note that individual results may vary based on vein health and adherence to post-procedure instructions.
The VenaSeal™ procedure, from start to finish, typically lasts between 30 to 60 minutes, contingent on the number and size of the veins being treated.
While VenaSeal™ is a robust treatment, it may not be suitable for individuals with certain allergies (specifically to the VenaSeal™ adhesive), those with deep vein thrombosis, or individuals with peripheral arterial disease. A thorough medical evaluation with our specialists is essential to ascertain candidacy.
VenaSeal™ is designed as a minimally invasive procedure, thus minimizing discomfort. Patients often report feeling a slight pressure during adhesive injection, but severe pain is uncommon. Local anesthesia is employed to enhance patient comfort.
Post VenaSeal™, patients may experience mild tenderness and bruising at the treatment site. It's advisable to avoid rigorous activities for a couple of days, but most individuals return to their regular routines shortly after the procedure. Compression stockings are not typically required post-VenaSeal™.
The sealing effect of VenaSeal™ is immediate. The adhesive acts swiftly to close the affected vein. Over the subsequent weeks to months, the body naturally reabsorbs the treated vein, and adjacent healthy veins take over the blood flow.
