When spider veins develop, they can leave you feeling as if your whole appearance has suffered a devastating blow. These characteristic veins can form on your face, chest and legs. They are also visible through the skin in the form of blue, red or purple interwoven lines. Thankfully, removing spider veins is easy with VenaSeal.
Spider veins form when the blood does not flow through the smaller blood vessels in the proper manner. The blood can begin to back up and pool inside the veins, causing them to enlarge. Fortunately for those who have the condition, spider veins seldom produce physical symptoms, nor do they create risks for the overall health. They can, however impact one’s self-esteem because of the cosmetic issues they create. This is reason enough for someone to consider removing spider veins.
If you have spider veins and are looking for the latest innovations to have them removed, ask our experts for some detail about VenaSeal. Your first thoughts may be that it is a form of sclerotherapy, but it does work differently.
Sclerotherapy works by injecting a solution into the targeted veins in order to irritate the walls and make them collapse. VenaSeal uses a material much like superglue to seal off the saphenous vein. The VenaSeal solution is first injected through a catheter. Once the catheter is in place, the solution goes into the vein through the catheter. It goes in as a liquid but quickly coagulates to seal off the vessel.
Removing spider veins with VenaSeal does not require the use of heat like some other treatment methods do. In addition, no downtime is required for patients who undergo spider vein removal with this innovative new system. Patients can immediately return to work or other daily activities as soon as the treatment is given.
The VenaSeal system comes as a kit that contains a catheter, syringes, a guidewire and a dispenser gun with the appropriate tips in addition to the adhesive itself. The therapy is administered by one of our specially trained professionals.
VenaSeal treatments were designed to treat diseased veins that are located near the surface of the skin. While spider veins typically fall into this category, many varicose veins do as well. The treatment method can be used for them as well.
