VenaSeal™ Closure System
Venaseal™ is a new, FDA-approved method for treating varicose veins.
How does VenaSeal™ Work?
The procedure typically takes 30-40 minutes 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 sting from the needle stick to numb the site where the doctor will access your vein.
Because VenaSeal™ is a minimally invasive treatment, the patient will only need a few minutes to recover and will be able to return to their regular activities right after the procedure, and there is no need to wear compression socks after treatment.
How long does it take to see results?
What to know before your Procedure:
Before a patient can receive the Venaseal™ treatment, a consultation with Dr. Perlmutter is needed to make sure that the patient qualifies for this specific treatment. Once approved, make sure to wear loose clothing to your appointment and do not use lotion on your legs the day of the procedure.
Unless told to do so, there is no need to stop any medications you take.
