Varithena®

Varithena Is A Top Non-Surgical Varicose Vein Treatment

Without incisions or general anesthesia, Varithena safely and effectively treats varicose veins. The only FDA-approved treatment using specially-formulated microfoam, Varithena improves symptoms of bulging veins and venous insufficiency without the use of heat or incisions, making it a highly sought-after vein treatment.

What Is Varithena?

Varithena is an FDA-approved, non-surgical outpatient procedure using injectable polidocanol microfoam for the treatment of varicose veins. Varithena microfoam incorporates CO2, which micronizes the bubbles and makes the foam thicker, which allows it dissolve faster than foam without CO2. After treatment, patients can return back to normal activities the same day, although heavy exercise should be avoided for a period of time.

How Does Varithena Work?

Varithena microfoam works to close diseased veins through ultrasound guided injection. The microfoam displaces the blood within the diseased vein, causing the vein to collapse. As the Varithena microfoam collapses the diseased veins, blood is rerouted to heathier veins nearby. Varithena is often used in conjunction with venous ablation to effectively treat varicose veins. Most patients feel little, if any, pain during this outpatient procedure.

Is Varithena the Best Vein Treatment for You?

Varithena is proven to provide significant improvement to quality of life and relief for the signs and symptoms of varicose veins and venous sufficiency:

  • Achy, heavy legs
  • Chronic swelling at the end of the day
  • Lower leg skin discoloration
  • Formation of venous ulcers

Because of the rapid absorption and its demonstrated effectiveness, our providers feel Varithena is a significant advance for our patients when it comes to avoiding future vein disease symptoms. Varithena is not only very well tolerated by our patients, but it speeds up the treatment period with superior results. If left untreated, affected areas would become swollen, discolored with possibility of the formation of venous ulcers. With Varithena, patients enjoy healthy legs that look and feel years younger.
