Most patients feel little, if any, pain during the outpatient procedure.
The non thermal VenaSeal procedure is designed to reduce recovery time compared to thermal treatments. Dr. Swierzewski can help you determine when you can return to normal activity.
Symptoms are caused by the diseased superficial vein. Thus, symptoms may improve as soon as the diseased vein is closed.
While bruising is common with all vein treatments, patients report it to be mild and to resolve with no treatment or with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication.
Only a very small amount of VenaSeal procedure adhesive is used to close the vein. Your body will naturally create scar tissue around the adhesive over time to keep the vessel permanently closed.
The VenaSeal procedure uses an adhesive to close the superficial vein. This differs from thermal energy procedures that use heat to close the vein. This intense heat requires numbing medicine, which is injected through multiple needle sticks. The injections may cause pain and bruising after the procedure.
As with any procedure, insurance coverage may vary. Insurance companies detail access to the VenaSeal procedure and other nonthermal ablation procedures in coverage policies for varicose veins or chronic venous insufficiency. As with all healthcare procedures, you may also have some cost associated with receiving treatment, such as a copay or coinsurance. Please reach out to your insurance company to discuss your specific plan coverage and potential costs prior to seeking treatment.
Most patients report feeling little, if any, pain during the ClosureFast procedure. Dr. Swierzewski will give you a local or regional anesthetic to numb the treatment area.
Patients treated with the ClosureFast procedure may resume normal activity more quickly than patients who undergo surgical vein stripping or laser ablation. With the ClosureFast procedure, the average patient typically resumes normal activity within a few days. For a few weeks following the treatment, your vein specialist may recommend a regular walking regimen and suggest you refrain from strenuous activities (heavy lifting, for example) or prolonged periods of standing.
Most patients report relief of symptoms after two days, with a noticeable improvement in one to two weeks.
Most patients report limited to no scarring, bruising, or swelling following the ClosureFast procedure.
During vein stripping, incisions are made in the groin and calf, and a tool is threaded through the diseased vein to pull the vein out of the leg. With the ClosureFast procedure, only one small incision is made at the insertion site and the vein is then treated and left in place. ClosureFast is a minimally invasive approach that reduces the likelihood of pain and bruising, associated with vein stripping surgery.
Many patients have access to the ClosureFast procedure through their insurance coverage plan. Insurance companies detail access to the ClosureFast procedure and other radiofrequency ablation procedures in coverage policies for varicose veins or chronic venous insufficiency. As with all healthcare procedures, you may also have some cost associated with receiving treatment, such as a copay or coinsurance. Please reach out to your insurance company to discuss your specific plan coverage and potential costs prior to seeking treatment.
