VenaSeal Varicose Vein Treatment

A new non-thermal technology for safer, virtually pain-free treatment.

VenaSeal™ is one of the biggest breakthroughs in the minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins in the last 15 years. Find relief from varicose veins with this non-thermalnon-surgical procedure and resume activities the same day

The VenaSeal Closure System is one of the newest advancements in vein treatment available today.

While most vein doctors are still using thermal ablation techniques introduced over 15 years ago, Midwest Vein Center regularly treats patients with VenaSeal—an innovative treatment option for patients with varicose veins, improving symptoms like heaviness, achiness, swelling, cramping, and itching. Unlike thermal energy laser treatments that use heat to close the vein, VenaSeal improves blood flow in diseased veins by sealing up—or closing—the veins with an adhesive.

Advantages of VenaSeal

Unlike lasers or radiofrequency ablation, Varithena is non-thermal (does not require heat) and provides the following advantages over lasers:

  • One tiny shot of local anesthetic instead of 12-15 large shots.
  • No risk of thermal (heat) injury to surrounding tissues (especially nerves).
  • Resume all activities one day after treatment instead of 1-2 weeks after treatment.

Additional benefits of VenaSeal include: 

  • One of the most advanced treatments available.
  • Treats veins with a medical adhesive instead of heat.
  • Does not require compression stockings after the procedure.
  • Minimally invasive and virtually painless for most patients.
  • Most patients experience little-to-no bruising.

How does VenaSeal treatment work?

Your doctor will start by numbing the injection site. Then using ultrasound guidance, your doctor will insert a catheter into specific areas along the diseased vein to deliver a small amount of a specially formulated medical adhesive. After the adhesive is applied to the inside of your diseased vein(s), the catheter is removed and a bandage is placed over the injection site. Your veins are immediately sealed by the adhesive, causing blood to reroute to nearby healthy veins and improving blood flow throughout the leg.

Possible Side Effects of VenaSeal

As a minimally invasive and catheter-based procedure, treatment with VenaSeal may cause minor and infrequent side effects in some patients, including:

  • temporary superficial phlebitis (inflammation of a vein)
  • temporary hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin)
  • temporary injection site bruising or pain
  • very rarely, blood clots in the leg veins

You should not be treated with VenaSeal if you are allergic to the adhesives.

Will my insurance cover the treatment?

Our insurance specialists will send a letter to your insurance company outlining the doctor’s plan for your treatment. Because we have an experienced staff dedicated to this process, we are able to obtain this information for you and notify you when the process is complete.
We are contracted with all the major insurance carriers (Medicare, BCBS, United Healthcare, Humana, Cigna, Aetna). However, if you are insured with an HMO type of insurance, it is your responsibility to bring a signed referral or authorization form from your Primary Care Physician (PCP) to each appointment.
