Spider Veins, more accurately known as varicose veins are unsightly. They are often painful bulging veins on the legs and face, although not restricted to this area. The condition is fairly common. It is caused by defective valves inside the veins. The defective valves cause blood to follow gravity, typically meaning that the blood is flowing in the wrong direction.
Some of the common causes of varicose veins in Wellington include:

It is best to seek spider vein treatment as soon as you spot the condition.
VenaSeal closure glue treatment is just one of a handful of treatment options for varicose veins. VenaSeal is a medical glue, much like the common superglue, and is used to completely obstruct the problem vein. This obstruction causes the blood to seek alternative routes around the body, naturally favoring healthier and more efficient veins.
The treatment is straightforward and non-invasive. The process requires a certified doctor to make a small incision in the general affected area. He then inserts a catheter and uses ultrasound to make his way to the target vein. A few drops of the medical adhesive seal the vein while the excess is naturally absorbed by the body. There are also no concerns of the solution finding its way to the heart or other sensitive organs since it dries almost immediately (typically in three minutes or less).
It is common for the doctor to inject a small amount of local anesthesia before the incision is made to ensure a comfortable treatment.
VenaSeal closure glue treatment in Wellington is incredibly simple and requires virtually no recovery time. You don’t have to worry about overnight stays or bed rest. Most patients can go grocery shopping right out of the doctor’s office. The entire process takes less than half an hour and you can expect to carry on with your daily work or family obligations with little or no discomfort.
