VenaSeal Q & A

What is VenaSeal?

VenaSeal is an injectable treatment for varicose veins. Unlike other treatments for varicose veins, VenaSeal doesn’t use heat or a foaming sclerosant medication to close and seal your damaged veins. Instead, it uses an adhesive substance to help your varicose veins close and stay shut.

In addition to sealing off your varicose veins, VenaSeal treatment can also reduce other symptoms of venous reflux disease, including:

  • Tired, aching legs
  • Throbbing sensations
  • Itchiness
  • Heavy feeling in your legs

VenaSeal treatment is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. When the treatment is complete, Dr. Hoyle needs only a small bandage to cover the puncture wound. One of the advantages of VenaSeal is there are no compression stockings.

How does VenaSeal work?

VenaSeal combines the adhesive substance with pressure to close and seal your veins. Once the adhesive is in place. More than 100,000 patients across the United States have used VenaSeal to treat their uncomfortable varicose veins. 

What happens during VenaSeal treatment?

During the VenaSeal procedure, Dr. Hoyle makes a small puncture site in your leg and guides a catheter through your veins and into your varicose vein. Then, as he slowly withdraws the catheter, he simultaneously injects the adhesive substance into your damaged vein. 

Next, Dr. Hoyle applies pressure to your varicose vein to help it close and seal itself. Finally, he withdraws the catheter and applies a bandage to cover the small puncture site.

Dr. Hoyle provides a local anesthetic, but you don’t need a regional nerve block or other types of anesthesia. You also don’t need to do anything special to prepare for the procedure.

What should I expect after VenaSeal treatment?

When your treatment is complete, you’re free to drive home. Regular exercise is encouraged.

Unlike with other varicose vein treatments, you don’t need to wear compression stockings after your VenaSeal procedure. You can return to your regular exercise routine after 48 hours. If you don’t have an active lifestyle, aim to walk for at least 10-15 minutes every day to promote healthy circulation.
