Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are proud to have been one of the practices to participate in the clinical trials for VenaSeal, a brand-new treatment for varicose veins which has just recently been FDA approved. VenaSeal is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes medical glue in order to seal off the affected vein and eliminate it. VenaSeal has been proven through clinical trials to be safe and effective, and we are excited to add it to our list of vein procedures in San Diego which already includes the CoolTouch CTEV, sclerotherapy, and phlebectomy.
What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are large, bulging veins that tend to develop later in life. Varicose veins affect both men and women, although women tend to get them more often. These veins can be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, jobs which require long periods of standing and being overweight. While many varicose veins do not have symptoms, sometimes they can cause pain or fatigue in addition to being unsightly. Luckily, there are many treatments available in San Diego which can safely remove varicose veins, including VenaSeal.
What is VenaSeal?
VenaSeal is a non-invasive method for large varicose vein elimination. It involves a small catheter inserted into the affected vein, which then disperses a precise amount of medical glue to seal the affected vein opening, thus allowing blood to be rerouted into healthy veins. The varicose vein will then be naturally eliminated by the body.
VenaSeal does not use any heat sources, thus eliminating any chance of skin burns or nerve damage. There is no need for general or tumescent anesthesia either. Plus, patients report only minimal to no bruising following the procedure.
Who is a Candidate for VenaSeal?
If you are suffering from varicose veins in San Diego, you may be a candidate for VenaSeal. VenaSeal is meant for only varicose vein elimination, not smaller, twisty spider veins. The CoolTouch Varia laser or sclerotherapy are generally considered better treatments for spider veins. If you are suffering from especially large varicose veins, it may not be possible to treat them completely non-invasively. In that case, Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is one of the few practices to offer phlebectomy, a minimally invasive surgical procedure which can eliminate even the largest varicose veins.
Talk to your expert dermatologist at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology to find out if VenaSeal is the right choice for varicose vein elimination in San Diego. Each individual patient is different, and during your consultation, your dermatologist will be able to assess your condition and desired results and determine which vein treatment procedure will get you optimal results.
