What is Varithena Vein Treatment?
Varithena is a foam-based vein treatment designed to treat diseased veins. Varithena is the only foam treatment approved by the FDA for improving the appearance and symptoms of varicose veins in the great saphenous vein (GSV) system.
The Varithena device generates a microfoam that a vein professional injects into the affected veins using ultrasound guidance. Then, the foam fills and collapses the affected veins and causes the blood flowing through them to shift to healthy veins nearby. This process is minimally invasive and completely non-surgical.
What Can I Expect From Varithena?
Varithena can help reduce your risk of developing progressive vein disease and other complications such as venous ulcers and deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
Using Varithena, people often find relief from symptoms such as:
- Leg cramping or aching
- Itching or burning
- Throbbing or restlessness
Each Varithena treatment typically lasts less than one hour, although the number of veins requiring treatment will affect the length of your session. The procedure requires no downtime, so you’ll be free to return home or to work immediately following treatment. Your vascular specialist will instruct you what to do and what to avoid the following treatment.
Effectiveness of Varithena
Extensive research has shown Varithena’s effectiveness in improving both the appearance and symptoms of varicose veins. For example, patients in one study who were given Varithena reported clinically significant improvement in their veins’ appearance and had significantly less need for additional treatment than those who received a placebo. These results — as well as the satisfaction of thousands of patients across the country — continue to prove the treatment’s effectiveness.
