Vein disease has become a common illness, especially among women. Varicose veins can cause extreme discomfort or even trigger serious complications. Fortunately, the experts at Surgical Care East, PLLC, offer Camillus Venaseal™ to prevent the progression of vein disease while relieving your discomfort.
Venaseal is an innovative, cutting-edge treatment for stubborn varicose veins and spider veins. The procedure involves the use of a medical-grade adhesive that permanently closes off the affected veins and reroutes your blood flow into healthier veins. Before your treatment, Dr. Resetarits injects you with local anesthesia to numb the target area then uses ultrasound to guide a thin catheter into the problematic veins. He then injects an adequate amount of Venaseal into the veins to seal them off completely. After the treatment, your body naturally absorbs the sealed veins and redirects your blood flow into healthier veins, improving your blood circulation.
Spider veins refer to small twisted bluish veins that form a web-like pattern at the back of your legs or on the surface of your face due to malfunctioning valves. Spider veins are usually not a cause for alarm though they may sometimes cause an uncomfortable itching or burning sensation. These veins may indicate that you’re likely to develop stubborn varicose veins later. Spider veins are a much smaller version of varicose veins. They usually appear at the back of your legs, creating twisted ropelike networks protruding from your skin. These unattractive veins may not pose any risk, but you can seek treatment for cosmetic purposes. In some cases, varicose veins may cause the following symptoms:
· Leg pain
· A tingling sensation
· Heaviness and fatigue in your legs
· Restless legs
· A burning sensation after extended periods of standing or sitting
· Skin discoloration around the affected veins
· Swollen legs
· Night cramps
In some cases, varicose veins can deteriorate and start leaking fluids into your surrounding body tissues resulting in leg swelling. The condition can also worsen, causing the appearance of venous ulcers that are usually not responsive to the healing process. This treatment also thwarts the risk of developing detrimental complications associated with varicose veins.
Over the years, VenaSeal has been the most recommended treatment for varicose veins and spider veins due to its effectiveness. After your treatment, you’re free to return to your daily activities, such as physical exercises a week later, and you don’t need downtime. Unlike other treatments, after a Venaseal procedure, you’re not required to wear compression stockings. Venaseal causes minimal discomfort, and it is safest as compared to several types of treatment. Though varicose veins may not be causing you any pain, Dr. Resetarits recommends that you seek treatment to avoid complications related to vein disease.
