Varicose veins are ugly, which is the primary reason most people seek treatment. However, a varicose vein is actually a diseased vein. Left untreated, varicose veins can cause health issues; such as cramping, ulcers, sores, and painful swelling and rashes. Fortunately, treatment of varicose veins is common and invasive.
The VenaSeal™ Closure System is one treatment option. Let’s take a closer look at another varicose vein treatment to consider:
The purpose of this procedure is to seal the diseased vein so blood is able to travel through healthy veins. Venous ablation involves inserting a flexible tube (catheter) into the vein and sealing it shut using medical adhesive. Eventually, the diseased vein will shrink and be absorbed by the body. This minimally invasive procedure involves little to no pain and has a very quick recovery time.
During your consultation, we will discuss each procedure with you in-depth so you are better able to decide which is best for you.
