Symptoms are caused by the diseased superficial vein. Thus, symptoms may improve as soon as the diseased vein is closed.
The VenaSeal™ closure system procedure is designed to reduce recovery time. Many patients return to normal activity immediately after the procedure. Your doctor can help you determine when you can return to normal activity.
Most patients feel little, if any, pain during the outpatient procedure.(1)
Most patients report little-to-no bruising after the VenaSeal™ closure system procedure.(1)
Only a very small amount of VenaSeal™ closure system procedure adhesive is used to close the vein. Your body will naturally absorb the adhesive over time.
The VenaSeal™ closure system procedure uses an adhesive to close the superficial vein. Thermal energy procedures use heat to close the vein. The intense heat requires a large volume of numbing medicine, which is injected through many needle sticks. The injections may cause pain and bruising after the procedure.
