Varicose veins, colloquially known as spider veins, are swollen veins that are typically visible on the legs and face. These veins protrude significantly and many people consider them unsightly. The spider veins problem is not limited to the face and legs and can occur virtually anywhere in the body.
Varicose veins are quite simply caused by clogged veins or blood that has accumulated in the veins causing them to swell out of the skin. This issue is not just a cosmetic concern and can have more serious health implications including heart disease.
VenaSeal is just one of the treatments available for spider veins. This treatment uses a medical-grade adhesive (similar to super glue) to close the problem veins. This procedure means that the blood must find alternate routes to circulate, usually favoring healthier veins.
VenaSeal closure glue treatment in West Palm Beach, comes highly recommended for its effectiveness and non-invasive nature. The treatment simply involves making a small incision on the skin and guiding a catheter through to the problem area before injecting the adhesive. The doctor uses an ultrasound to allow him to see what he is doing. The entire procedure is completed in less than 30 minutes.
Another reason why VenaSeal is a preferred treatment for varicose veins is that the process requires virtually no recovery time. Some patients have reported even going to the gym shortly after the treatment.
The average patient doesn’t need to take time off work or from family obligation for the treatment. This process is a walk-in meaning you likely leave the doctor’s office less than an hour after you signed in. You can continue with your daily routine with minimal or no pain or discomfort. The results are also quick to show: sometimes just a few minutes after the procedure.

This is a relatively new procedure but the results so far have been very encouraging. A vast majority of patients see positive results within a very short time, sometimes even minutes.
