What is Varithena?
Varithena is the first FCA approved injectable foam treatment that corrects reflux in the saphenous veins and reducing the appearance of bulging veins, as well as reducing discomfort from throbbing, itchy, achy, and painful vein disease reported by many patients. Best of all, this treatment will leave your legs looking and feeling better. It typically used specifically with the great saphenous vein(GSV) and surrounding veins. Patients with varicose veins, with or without pain or discomfort, are typically good candidates for this treatment.
How Does Varithena Work?
This non-surgical treatment does not require sedation, but we will numb the treatment area – about the size of your fingernail – to ensure you are not in any discomfort. The doctor, using ultrasound guidance, will then insert a small needle or catheter tube into the problem area of your varicose veins through which the Varithena foam will enter the vein, causing the vein to collapse. When it collapses, the blood will flow into a nearby healthy vein. The procedure typically takes less than an hour.
