A special type of superglue for varicose veins can be as effective as surgery for your veins. VenaSealTM represents the next generation in varicose vein treatment and permanently seals varicose veins shut permanently.
Like most modern vein procedures such as sclerotherapy and endovenous laser ablation, the goal of VenaSealTM is to seal the varicose vein shut. The body then naturally reroutes the blood through healthy veins in the area, while reabsorbing the shut vein. The reabsorption causes the vein to disappear from sight.
Like the other procedures, VenaSealTM is minimally invasive, meaning it involves only a tiny incision or a needle stick. The procedure is performed right at our clinic, with no need to go to a hospital or have an anaesthetic.
The result of VenaSealTM is healthier legs, improved circulation, and reduction or elimination of the risk factors and annoying symptoms that accompany varicose veins.
VenaSealTM is a type of glue known as a “cyanoacrylate”. Cyanoacrylates are not new; this type of glue has been safely used to repair wounds and skin incisions for over 50 years. It has also been used to seal diseased arteries shut. VenaSealTM is simply a new application for a well-known adhesive substance currently used by physicians and surgeons worldwide.
Numvenaseal_varicose_veins_treatment_clinic_medical_superglueerous studies have shown VenaSealTM to have at least a 92% success rate over 5 years, which is equivalent to the current standard endovenous laser or radiofrequency ablation procedures. However, VenaSealTM has the advantages of not requiring laser or radiofrequency energy, which carry some risks of skin burns or nerve damage, and no need to wear compression stockings after the procedure.
On arrival at our clinic, your leg will be painlessly scanned to find the varicose vein(s) to be sealed shut. After administering a small amount of local anesthetic to your leg, a tiny catheter will be inserted into the vein to deliver the VenaSealTM glue. Vein(s) will shut with in a few minutes, and a band-aid will be applied to the injection point. You can then return to your usual activities immediately.
After 3 weeks, you will have a follow-up appointment at our clinic to ensure that the treatment was successful. If needed, smaller branch veins can then be treated with sclerotherapy. At 6 weeks after treatment, you will have a final scan to ensure that your procedure has been completely effective.
Please call our office at 1300 535 017 for an initial appointment. No referral is necessary.
