Varithena

VARICOSE VEIN TREATMENT

 When it comes to treating varicose veins and getting back to the activities you love, there’s a new, nearly painless way. Varithena is a gentle microfoam treatment delivered in as few as 1-2 needle sticks. Patients reporting pain at the injection or application site in clinical trials was 4.0%. For most people, Varithena improves both physical symptoms related to varicose veins, and their appearance.


Putting your needs front and center, the fast, minimally invasive treatment allows you to do something about your varicose veins your way—with little to no downtime. Please note that you should not be treated with Varithena if you’re allergic to polidocanol or have clots in your blood vessels.

 

 

 

 

 

TREATMENT & RESULTS

Thousands of people who want to feel and look their best choose Varithena. It’s covered by most Medicare and insurance plans, and the quick treatment means that most people can get right back to their days. Learn what happens during and after the procedure and see before-and-after photos.

There are no incisions, sedation or general anesthesia. Dr. Goldberg may recommend Varithena, because unlike thermal ablation, it:

  • Is effective to treat veins of different sizes up and down your leg

  • Doesn’t need a wire to be inserted along the length of your vein

  • Is given in as little as one or two needle sticks per treatment

  • Doesn’t use heat, eliminating the risk of burns

And unlike glue, Varithena dissolves in the bloodstream after treatment, leaving nothing permanently in your vein.

HERE'S WHAT TO EXPECT

Before the Treatment: 

  • The physician usually numbs the injection site, but no additional anesthesia is required.

During Treatment: 

  • Your physician administers a small amount of Varithena.

  • The Varithena microfoam fills the desired section of the vein and treats the vein wall, causing the diseased vein to collapse.

  • Blood flow is redirected to healthier nearby veins. The microfoam disperses as it comes into contact with blood in healthy veins.

  • Your physician uses the same process on any other veins that need treatment.

  • The most common side effects are leg pain or discomfort, injection site bruising or pain, and potentially serious blood clots in the leg veins. 

After Treatment: 

  • While allergic reactions are rare, a healthcare professional will watch you for signs of an allergic reaction for at least 10 minutes.

  • Your physician applies bandages and compression stockings to your leg. You’ll wear the stockings for two weeks.

  • Because Varithena is minimally invasive and well tolerated by most people, you’re likely to go back to most normal activities the same day.

  • You should avoid heavy exercise for one week. 

  • For a month, you should walk at least 10 minutes a day and avoid long stretches of inactivity.

  • Additional treatment sessions may be needed.
