VenaSeal is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using a specialized vein glue to treat chronic venous insufficiency, the root cause of most vein problems. The vein doctor carefully injects a specialized medical-grade adhesive into the diseased vein under ultrasound guidance. The vein glue seals the diseased vein’s walls, turning it into a hardened scar tissue eventually metabolized by the body. The accumulated blood reroutes into healthier leg veins to restore optimal blood circulation.
What to expect during the procedure?
VenaSeal is a minimally-invasive, in-office, outpatient procedure that concludes within an hour and involves no downtime. VenaSeal treatments are painless and effective. Below, we describe what you can expect from your VenaSeal procedure.
VenaSeal is a simple, non-surgical, in-office treatment that concludes within an hour. The vein doctor makes a small incision on the skin’s surface, through which they inject a medical-grade adhesive into the diseased vein under ultrasound guidance.
VenaSeal doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort. The vein doctor administers local anesthesia before the treatment so you don’t experience any discomfort. Even when the vein glue is injected into the diseased vein, you don’t feel any pain.
VenaSeal concludes within an hour, following which you can resume your daily activities and work immediately. This is the perfect lunchtime procedure — you don’t have to take any time off work or other social engagements.

Before and after Vein Doctor treatment
PROS OF VenaSeal
VenaSeal is one of the few minimally invasive vein treatments that doesn’t involve tumescent anesthesia. As such, the risk of post-treatment swelling is minimal.
If your diseased saphenous vein has multiple branches, the vein glue travels into all the smaller branches to seal them shut. You don’t need multiple sessions to target the smaller branches of the diseased vein.
VenaSeal is a relatively new procedure, having received FDA approval for vein treatment in 2015. VenaSeal’s long-term effects are still unclear, and some patients may also develop allergic reactions to the medical adhesive.
Once the vein glue is injected into the diseased vein, it turns into a hardened implant. There are no risks associated with the vein glue, but some patients don’t like the idea of implants.
