VenaSeal™ for Varicose Vein Removal in Westchester
One of the newest options for patients seeking varicose vein treatment is VenaSeal™. At Bellava MedAesthetic & Plastic Surgery Center, we are proud to offer this revolutionary treatment for varicose veins carried out by our board-certified plastic Westchester vein specialist, Dr. Donna D'Alessio, who has carried out thousands of leg procedures.
VenaSeal is totally different than other nonsurgical and surgical methods for resolution of enlarged veins. It uses a specialized “glue” that seals the “leaky veins” and patients can go back to work the next day. Also, it is the only vein procedure that does not need to have compression stockings worn after being performed.
How it works: The first step for patients receiving VenaSeal™ for their varicose veins is a thorough evaluation of the leg vessels which is performed by our board-certified vein specialist Dr. Donna D'Alessio.

A tiny puncture is made in the skin, through which the VenaSeal™ device may be inserted. The FDA-approved adhesive is then delivered along the entire length of the targeted vein, to guarantee complete closure. After only 30 minutes, the average VenaSeal™ procedure is completed, and patients can resume their normal daily activities with only minimal recovery time.
