How Does Varithena Treatment Work?

First, we want to assure you that you are in good hands with our specialists at USA Vein Clinics. Along with other vein treatments, our vein experts are highly skilled in performing Varithena procedures. To make things potentially even safer, Varithena foam comes in a canister already measured to the perfect dosage.

During treatment, the Varithena device generates a microfoam. Then, one of our vein experts injects the Varithena foam into the affected veins using ultrasound guidance. Afterwards, the foam fills and collapses the affected veins and causes the blood flow to reroute to healthy veins nearby.

If you’ve been avoiding varicose vein treatment because you fear painful surgery, Varithena may be a good option for you. You’ve also probably heard that vein surgery can involve a long recovery — and this is often true. Varithena treatment, on the other hand, is minimally-invasive and completely non-surgical.

You’ll also need to return for a follow-up appointment within 2 to 3 weeks to ensure the treatment was successful.
