Venaseal Treatment

What is a Venaseal?

The VenaSeal™ closure system is designed to close varicose veins by injecting a very small amount of proprietary medical adhesive (glue) inside of the vein. It is indicated for use in the permanent closure of lower extremity superficial truncal veins, such as the great saphenous vein (GSV), through endovascular embolization with coaptation. The vein is then compressed with ultrasound and remains closed.

The neurotoxin is used to treat dynamic wrinkles on the face and neck muscles, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and give the skin a relaxed look, while also slimming down the lower face, shoulder, arm and calf muscles. It can be injected superficially to lift and tighten the skin and make the pores look smaller.

How does VenaSeal differ from thermal energy procedures?

  • Venaseal is the only FDA approved procedure that uses injection of medical adhesive to close veins. Because this adhesive works immediately to cause venous closure, compression stockings do not need to be worn after the procedure. Thermal procedures such as RFA and EVLA or chemical irritation of the vein, do not cause immediate closure, so compression stockings need to be worn post procedure.

  • VenaSeal is intended for use in adults with clinically symptomatic venous reflux as diagnosed by duplex ultrasound (DUS). VenaSeal system is contraindicated when any of the following conditions exist: previous hypersensitivity reactions to the VenaSeal adhesive or cyanoacrylates, acute superficial thrombophlebitis, thrombophlebitis migrans and acute sepsis.

What can I expect of the VenaSeal procedure?

Before the procedure:

You will have an ultrasound imaging exam of the leg that is to be treated. This exam is important for assessing the diseased superficial vein and planning the procedure.

During the procedure:

The provider can discuss the procedure with you. It is performed as an outpatient in the office. The procedure typically takes 1-2 hours and only requires a small amount of local anesthetic (numbing medication). A brief summary of what to expect is below:

You may feel some minor pain or stinging with a needle stick to numb the site where the doctor will access your vein.

Once the area is numb, your doctor will insert the catheter (i.e., a small hollow tube) into your leg. You may feel some pressure from the placement of the catheter.

The catheter will be placed in specific areas along the diseased vein to deliver small amounts of the medical adhesive. You may feel some mild sensation of pulling. Ultrasound will be used during the procedure to guide and position the catheter.

After treatment, the catheter is removed and a small adhesive bandage placed over the puncture site.

After the procedure:

The provider will recommend follow-up care as needed. Compression stockings do not need to be worn after a Venaseal procedure. There is a follow-up ultrasound in 2 weeks to verify that the vein remained closed. Additional follow-up office appointments with ultrasound will be performed at 3 months and 12 months following the procedure in order to document long term closure of the treated vein.

When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest. This can be solved with a temporary solution by using a neuromodulator.
