A new medical adhesive is now available in Australia for the treatment of painful varicose veins.
VenaSeal adhesive, is a medical grade ‘glue’ used to shut the main Saphenous Vein in the thigh. Once the vein has been ‘glued’ shut, symptom relief is reported as almost immediate by most patients. It is a minimally invasive procedure.

Dr Paraskevas specialises in non-surgical treatment of varicose veins of all sizes, and has developed a reputation as a leader in the application of simple and successful techniques to treat varicose veins.
Many patients do not realise they have a complication of venous disease until they see a phlebologist. It is important to understand that varicose veins can be a progressive condition and that new diseased veins can develop with time.
Many women first notice varicose veins while pregnant and may experience symptoms like muscle cramps at night, heaviness in the legs, aching, swelling, pain, or even itching and dermatitis in the legs.
Dr Peter Paraskevas (MBBS, FRACGP, FACP, GCertHSc (Med Sonography)) is a Phlebologist and Certified Sclerotherapist and a leader in the non-surgical treatment of varicose veins and leg ulcers.
With a background in emergency and general medicine, Dr Paraskevas initially worked in private general practice in Victoria, after obtaining his fellowship with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. During this time he developed an interest in varicose vein disease, venous ulcers and peripheral arterial disease. More about Dr. Paraskevas »
Top 5 Myths About Varicose Veins
Myth #5 - There Is No Point Removing Varicose Veins; They Only Come Back
While this used to be true with past methods of vein removal, such as invasive "vein stripping" surgery, varicose veins are generally gone for good with today's modern, non-surgical methods. Laser technology allows us to treat veins which were only removed by surgery in the past. The key also lies in using duplex ultrasound to completely map out the size and location of all diseased veins - many of which are beneath the skin and not visible. Ultrasound is then used to accurately and thoroughly treat the varicose veins. By being able to see these hidden diseased veins, one can eliminate the root cause and prevent most recurrences. No procedure, however, can prevent new veins from forming.
I highly recommend that people have their varicose veins assessed by a phlebologist to avoid complications. With the advancement of medical technology, there is no reason you should be in pain or have to cover up because you don't like the way your legs look. There is no reason to live with varicose veins anymore.
