Do you suffer from varicose or spider veins? Don’t let your summer plans discourage you from our VenaSeal™ treatment! Our new, minimally invasive closure system does not require anesthesia and is used to directly close the individual diseased vein segment. VenaSeal allows for a brief recovery time and reduces risk of additional post-operative side effects.
After treatment, you will immediately be able to go back to your favorite summer activities with no down time at all. Swim, bike, and hike without the pain you experienced before! Not only will you be enjoying your summer with minimal pain in your legs, but you will be proactive about your vein health.
Remember that varicose veins are not just enlarged flesh colored, dark purple or blue veins on your legs. They are also a result of venous reflux disease, which occurs when valves in the veins of the lower leg no longer function properly, forcing blood to flow backward or reflux. A more serious condition, known as chronic venous insufficiency, can also come from varicose veins. This results in lower leg pain swelling, skin damage, and ulcerations. When the diseased segment is closed during the VenaSeal treatment, the blood will then flow to the surrounding healthy veins to the prevent the serious affects that can come from varicose veins.
Don’t let varicose veins affect your health or lifestyle. Call (775) 329-3100 to schedule a consultation today with Reno’s vein specialist, Dr. Merchant.
