What Is Varithena?
Varithena® is a microfoam that injected into varicose veins. It is an FDA-approved vein treatment that does not require surgical measures, and it is minimally invasive in nature. This diverse treatment can be used to treat most types of varicose veins, including veins that are:
- Above and below the knee
- Previously treated with a different method
- Small, medium, or large in diameter
- Twisted (tortuous)
To determine if Varithena is a good treatment for you and your varicose veins, we recommend a consultation with our professionals in Omaha.
Varithena microfoam can be delivered to the vein via a catheter or an injection. The foam fills up the vein in the targeted treatment area, pushing the blood out. The foam forces the vein to collapse, redirecting blood flow to healthier veins. This effectively encourages better blood flow and reduces the appearance of varicose veins.
Varithena is administered on an outpatient basis in the comfort of our Nebraska office. The process generally requires less than an hour, and there is no downtime associated with treatment.
Patients are often able to immediately see their varicose veins fading away. The vein itself does not disappear, but since it is no longer filled with blood, it does not bulge or appear dark in color. Any leg pain is also quickly alleviated. However, results will vary for each person and their veins.
Our professional staff will provide you with all the information you need to care for your Varithena treatment area. It is important to wear compression stockings for the first two weeks after receiving treatment. Patients should also walk for at least ten minutes per day. However, avoid prolonged or strenuous physical activity for at least one week.
