Excellent results for Venaseal "superglue" treatment for varicose veins

The Venaseal "superglue" treatment for varicose veins is one of the new and very exciting treatments for leg veins.

Unlike laser and radiofrequency, there is no heat generated in the treatment and so there is no need for "tumescent" anaesthesia. This means that Venaseal treatment needs only one local anaesthetic injection for each major vein treated.

The Great Saphenous Vein is the dark circle in the middle of the picture
The question has always been - "Does it work"?

Well these 2 ultrasound pictures show excellent results in one of our patients 6 months after Venaseal "superglue" treatment of their Great Saphenous Vein for Varicose Veins.

The first picture (above) shows the ultrasound of the Great Saphenous Vein in cross-section. The vein is seen as a black circle in the middle of the picture.

with Venaseal "Superglue" - vein has virtually vanished (Green arrow)
Six months later the vein is not only closed, but is has virtually disappeared (see second picture above).

Research at The Whiteley Clinic has shown us that when a vein reacts like this, it is a sign that the vein has been completely destroyed and will not open up again in the future.

So far all of the patients we have treated with the Venaseal superglue have had the same excellent results. we are now confident to offer Venaseal to our patients as part of The Whiteley Protocol(TM).
