The Vein Institute
Medical Doctor, Medical Superglue
Venaseal™ or ‘superglue’ treatment by Sapheon is the latest surgery free procedure that uses a medical adhesive to safely and effectively treat varicose veins.
Unlike other treatments, Venaseal™ does not require tumescent local anaesthetic around the vein, so there is usually only one local anaesthetic injection. The Venaseal™ non surgical treatment procedure also eliminates the use of heat (or thermal energy) so there is virtually no risk of nerve or skin injury or any major reaction to the anaesthetic. As the medical ‘superglue’ sets within a few minutes, there is not the prolonged healing process associated with ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy and medical stockings are not required afterwards. There are no necessary steps or precautions to take before or after the procedure and no restrictions on travel. In some instances additional treatment will be required with ultrasound guided sclerotherapy.
