VenaSeal is a new, state-of-the-art treatment for varicose veins and venous disease which uses medical-grade adhesive instead of heat to seal the affected vein(s). Dr. Bunker of Bunker Vein and Imaging is one of the first doctors in Austin to be offering this new treatment.
In the minimally-invasive procedure, the VenaSeal system helps to seal off diseased veins and re-route blood flow through healthy veins, allowing the system to heal and alleviating painful symptoms like aching, swelling, and cramping.
Rather than using heat to seal the vein, as was traditionally done in thermal energy treatment, VenaSeal uses a small amount of medical adhesive specifically designed for the procedure.
Benefits of VenaSeal vs. Traditional Treatment
Dr. Bunker is excited to pass along the many benefits of using VenaSeal to his patients:
No Down Time. While traditional thermal energy procedures require pre- and post-treatment measures like wearing compression socks, VenaSeal recovery is immediate and includes zero down time.
Just One Shot. No heavy anesthesia or multiple sticks of a needle—because there is no heat involved, you will not need to have the entire vein anesthetized. The VenaSeal procedure requires just one shot of anesthesia.
Less Bruising. Compared to other treatments, VenaSeal patients tend to show less bruising to the treated area.
