What is Varithena?

Varithena is a non-invasive treatment option for varicose veins that helps patients restore their sense of well-being without surgery. Symptoms of varicose veins can affect your life at work and your ability to get good sleep. You don’t have to put up with the physical or emotional effects of unsightly varicose veins with new, non-invasive options like Varithena being available.

How does Varithena work?

A physician administers Varithena via injection. The microfoam injected is pinpointed to target the problem area of the vein only. The diseased vein will collapse, and foam dilutes naturally into the bloodstream before being flushed by the body.

Once the diseased vein is collapsed, blood will naturally be routed to healthier veins, improving the body’s ability to supply your various organs and extremities with blood.

Benefits of Varithena

  • Gentle. It’s a gentle, non-invasive treatment that requires one or two small injections.
  • Minimal downtime. Most patients can return to their normal activities on the same day as their treatment. Proper care is discussed and always recommended, regardless.
  • Fast. The entire Varithena procedure takes an hour or less.
  • Short treatment process. Most patients only require one treatment to see results. Only a small percentage of patients needed to re-treat a previously treated area.
  • Insurance coverage. Most insurance carriers are open to covering treatment. Whether or not a patient finds coverage depends on the severity of varicose veins and the symptoms they are causing.
