Advanced Medical Adhesive

The VenaSeal closure system uses an advanced medical adhesive that closes the diseased vein. It is the only non-thermal, non-tumescent, non-sclerosant procedure approved for use in the U.S., which means no heat and no swelling.

What Is VenaSeal?

VenaSeal is a non-thermal, non-tumescent curative procedure used to treat varicose veins. It is equally effective as endovenous ablation but without heat or tumescent anesthesia. Instead, VenaSeal involves the injection of a medical adhesive into the affected vein, sealing it shut and redirecting blood flow to healthy veins. This minimally invasive procedure requires no compression stockings post-treatment and has a fast recovery time. VenaSeal is a safe and effective alternative to traditional vein stripping surgery, with a high success rate and patient satisfaction.

Pain-Free With No Downtime Required

VenaSeal treatment is a comfortable and essentially pain-free procedure, as it does not require any tumescence for local anesthesia. After the procedure, patients can resume their usual activities, as no recovery time is necessary. Moreover, there is no need to wear compression stockings following VenaSeal treatment.

VenaSeal Or Radiofrequency Ablation?

VenaSeal and radiofrequency ablation are both highly effective vein treatments that permanently close off targeted vein segments. However, VenaSeal accomplishes this without using heat delivery, eliminating the need for large amounts of anesthetic solution. As a result, VenaSeal is often the preferred treatment option.

How Is VenaSeal Performed?

VenaSeal is performed in-office and typically takes less than one hour. Under ultrasound guidance, the patented VenaSeal treatment catheter is inserted into the vein through a tiny incision, similar to endovenous ablation.

Once the catheter is in position, small amounts of adhesive are injected into the vein, and the catheter is pulled through the length of the vein. The catheter is then removed from the body, and the vein is “glued” shut by the adhesive.

The Advantages and Limitations of VenaSeal


  • Effective outpatient procedure
  • Less discomfort due to decreased need for local anesthetic
  • Compression stockings are not necessary after VenaSeal treatment


  • Limited coverage with medical insurance
  • Hypersensitivity reactions are more common than with RF vein ablation

Is VenaSeal Covered by Insurance?

There is still limited coverage for VenaSeal, depending on the insurance carrier. If your vein specialist opts for VenaSeal, our insurance specialists will obtain prior authorization to cover the procedures.
