VenaSeal is a minimally invasive, in-office, outpatient procedure wherein an FDA-approved medical adhesive is used to treat chronic venous insufficiency, the root cause of most vein problems.
Venous insufficiency is a circulatory disorder wherein your vein valves collapse and blood flows backward to accumulate in the leg veins. The continued accumulation of blood in leg veins due to gravity eventually leads to spider veins, varicose veins (bulging leg veins), skin discoloration, restless leg syndrome, leg heaviness, leg ulcers (non-healing wounds), and deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in leg veins.)
What Happens During VenaSeal Treatment?
The VenaSeal Closure System is one of the most effective treatments for chronic venous insufficiency, the root cause of varicose veins and spider veins.
During the procedure, the vein doctor administers local anesthesia and makes a small incision on the skin’s surface, which serves as an entry point for a hollow needle (catheter) that’s driven into the diseased vein under ultrasound guidance.
The VenaSeal device promotes fibrotic growth when it comes in contact with blood, essentially sealing the diseased vein shut. The diseased vein is eventually reabsorbed by the body, restoring effective blood circulation to the heart.
VenaSeal is more comfortable than most other vein treatments. You don’t even need to wear compression stockings or ACE bandages after the procedure, and you can also resume most of your physical activities, including swimming.
Are You a Candidate for VenaSeal?
To determine if you’re a candidate for VenaSeal, you must contact our talented vein doctors in Long Island. Our vein doctors will examine your leg veins, review your medical history, and perform Duplex Ultrasound to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins. This will help them determine if you have chronic venous insufficiency and if you’re a suitable candidate for VenaSeal.
Generally speaking, VenaSeal is an appropriate treatment for most patients with chronic venous insufficiency. As such, if you want to learn about your candidacy, please schedule your vein treatment in Long Island today.

VenaSeal Post-Treatment Recovery & Aftercare
VenaSeal doesn’t involve any downtime or extended recovery period. You may experience mild irritation and a sensation of firmness in your legs. However, the sensation of firmness will gradually dissipate as the hardened veins within your legs get reabsorbed by the body. Other than these mild side effects, you can resume your daily activities and work with no downtime or interruption. In fact, most patients seek VenaSeal treatment during their lunch break.
Most vein treatments require you to wear compression stockings or ACE bandages after the procedure. However, VenaSeal doesn’t even necessitate wearing compression stockings. You can also get your legs wet without worries, so you can go swimming and engage in other activities that induce sweating. As such, VenaSeal is one of the most convenient vein treatments in Long Island right now.
Do I Need Other Treatments?
The VenaSeal Closure System has a 99% success rate, which means there’s a negligible risk of failure, so you don’t need additional treatments. Furthermore, it treats the root cause of your vein problems rather than just the superficial symptoms, so there’s a negligible risk of vein disease recurrence. However, some patients may need additional treatments of sclerotherapy to remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins.
