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.

  • Only one needle stick.

VenaSeal™ FAQs

What is VenaSeal and how can it help me?

VenaSeal is a minimally invasive procedure in which a catheter is placed into the vein and VenaSeal medical glue is injected to seal off the vein. This procedure allows for blood to find a different path instead of through the faulty vein.

Who are the best candidates for this procedure?

The best candidates for this procedure are patients who have symptoms like pain, cramping, swelling, burning, itchy sensation, or heaviness in their legs. Patients who present with visible spider or varicose veins may have underlying vein disease which would qualify for VenaSeal.

Describe the VenaSeal procedure and how is it performed?

During VenaSeal anesthesia is applied to numb the area of the procedure site. A small incision is made on the leg and a small catheter is then inserted into the varicose vein that has venous insufficiency. Using a medical adhesive solution, the vein is sealed off. This procedure is minimally invasive and has a quick recovery time.

Does the VenaSeal procedure hurt? Can I go back to work soon?

There is minimal discomfort with this procedure. An anesthetic is used on the leg of the patient in order to numb the inside of the leg so the patient has no pain. Patients can walk and return to their normal activities within the same day.

What are the expected results for VenaSeal?

Patients typically have significant improvement with their treatment. Since this is such a unique procedure, if a patient has multiple veins that need to be treated there’s the ability to treat more than one vein in the same leg safely and with minimal patient discomfort.

Does insurance cover the treatment?

It depends since VenaSeal is a relatively new treatment.

What is the recovery like for VenaSeal?

VenaSeal reduces discomfort and recovery time since it is the latest in vein removal technology. No compression garments are needed.
