Learn more about how Varithena®’s advanced microfoam technology collapses veins in a non-surgical manner.
Varithena® is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical solution for treating a wide range of varicose veins that uses injectable microfoam technology. Designed to collapse unhealthy veins in a non-surgical setting, Varithena® does not require the use of general anesthesia, sedation, or incisions.
How Varithena® Works
Varithena® ‘s microfoam interacts with the vein walls to collapse them safely and effectively. As the foam is pushed out of the collapsing vein, it is then distributed throughout nearby veins — collapsing connected veins that are malfunctioning similarly, and dissolving safely into the bloodstream of healthier veins.
This way, blood flow is rerouted through healthier veins, providing you enhanced circulatory functions and immediate relief from physical pain and discomfort.
Types of Veins Treated With Varithena®
Varithena® can treat a variety of varicose veins, both above and below the knee, including:
Veins of all sizes (including small, medium, and large diameters
Veins previously treated by other medical methods
Twisted veins (also called tortuous veins)
What To Expect From Your Procedure
Your physician will begin by performing an ultrasound to assess the diseased veins in your leg and map out where, specifically, they will administer the Varithena®.
Using either a catheter or direct injection, your physician will then administer Varithena®, placing mild pressure on the leg to help distribute the microfoam particles and collapse the diseased vein(s). Ultrasound technology will be used to monitor the position of the catheter throughout the procedure.
Once complete, the catheter will be removed. The site will be covered with a bandage and you will be provided with a medical compression stocking for your leg.
