When you are looking for the most up-to-date treatment options for varicose veins, Heart of Dixie Vein and Vascular Center in Southern Utah and Nevada can help you. As VenaSeal is a new treatment option for venous insufficiency and varicose veins, we can not only walk you through the steps of the procedure and explain the advantages, but we can offer VenaSeal reviews to help you understand why other patients have chosen this option to restore their vein health.
When veins become damaged due to age, injury, or sitting for long periods, venous insufficiency may manifest itself. Veins pump blood through the legs and return it to the heart in a healthy cardiovascular system. But venous insufficiency occurs when the valves of the vein cease to function correctly. Blood pools in the legs, causing all sorts of conditions, including spider veins, varicose veins, and even life-threatening deep vein thrombosis (DVT). With VenaSeal treatment in Utah and Nevada, Heart of Dixie Vein and Vascular Center can help those suffering from injured veins.
One of the new advances in the treatment of venous insufficiency and varicose veins is the use of adhesives to close off dilated or malfunctioning veins. Approved by the FDA in 2015, VenaSeal is a technique that uses small droplets of a sterile surgical adhesive similar to super glue to close the vein. Unlike super glue, of course, the adhesive used in the VenaSeal treatment flexes and functions within the body without stiffness or tightness.
To correct venous insufficiency, our doctors at Heart of Dixie use a unique and state-of-the-art tool to seal off the injured veins and reroute proper blood flow to working veins. This tool is called VenaSeal: a catheter and pump system that closes off the offending vein with a tiny application of medically approved adhesive.
As a new technology, we know just how important it is for you to learn all you can about VenaSeal before you decide to undergo the procedure. We’re happy to provide you with all the information you need to help you understand how this treatment can help you.

For those that are nervous about needles and the idea of fixing a vein from the inside, there is little to fear. The VenaSeal closure procedure improves blood flow by sealing or closing the diseased vein, leaving you with little to no downtime and no need to wear compression stockings afterward. The VenaSeal procedure is actually very simple and near painless.
In the VenaSeal procedure, there is no need for multiple needle sticks. Instead, we access the vein with a single needle and place the catheter under ultrasound guidance. Once in position, the system delivers a small amount of specially formulated medical adhesive to the inside of the diseased vein. During the procedure, you may experience the sensation of tugging as we apply the adhesive and pull the application tube back towards the catheter. With enough adhesive applied, pressure is then applied to the area for a few minutes. The adhesive polymerizes, sealing the vein. Blood then naturally routes through nearby healthy veins.
The procedure can be done within an hour with a minimal anesthetic. The results become apparent within only a matter of weeks thanks to the fast-acting adhesive, making VenaSeal an ideal form of treatment for venous insufficiency and varicose veins.
Since the technology was invented, over 100,000 patients all over the world have been treated with the VenaSeal system. VenaSeal offers several advantages when compared to other venous insufficiency and varicose vein treatments. Some other advantages of VenaSeal include:
