What is Varithena®?
Varithena® is an FDA approved treatment that can correct the appearance of varicose veins in the legs and thighs. It is the only treatment of its kind, using foam to treat varicose veins caused by complications in the saphenous vein system. Varithena® is a minimally invasive treatment that does not require any incisions or sedatives.
What can I expect from the Varithena® procedure?
At the start of the procedure, a member of our medical personnel will apply a local anesthetic, numbing the treatment area for optimal comfort. A small amount of Varithena® will be injected into the varicose veins. The microfoam will then fill up the vein and treat the vein wall, causing the vein to collapse. Blood that coursed through this collapsed vein will be transmitted to healthier veins near the treatment area.
How many treatments with Varithena® will I need?
Usually, a single treatment with Varithena may be enough to treat the unwanted varicose veins. However, the exact number of treatments each patient may need will depend upon the amount and depth of the veins being treated. To find out how many treatments you may need, meet with our medical personnel today!
What is the recovery process like?
All patients who are treated with Varithena will be advised to wear compression stockings for around two weeks following their treatment date. You will be able to resume your normal routine the same day of your treatment, however, we strongly advise to avoid heavy or vigorous exercise for at least one week.
If you find yourself in discomfort from varicose veins, whether they are disrupting your aesthetic or they are causing you pain, Varithena® is a distinctive treatment option that can correct unwanted varicose veins.
