Radio frequency has long been the ideal treatment for varicose tributary veins of the great saphenous vein.
However, now there is a new Varithena procedure that treats this vein concern in a completely different and revolutionary way.
What is the Varithena Procedure?
Varithena is a non-thermal, non-tumescent ablation procedure.
It is a prescription medicine foam that can be used to improve the appearance of varicose veins as well as symptoms related to them.
How Varithena Works
Varithena is a non-surgical treatment where a catheter or injection is used to fill the damaged vein with the product.
The foam itself fills the area and prompts the vein to collapse which encourages blood to relocate to healthier veins.
What to Expect from a Varithena Treatment
During your treatment no anesthesia is required, however, you can expect your doctor to numb the injection site to make your treatment experience as comfortable as possible.
Your doctor will use a catheter or direct injection to target the vein which may take around 20 minutes or so.
Following the application of the foam, a bandage will be applied and you will be given a compression stocking to encourage healthy blood flow.
What are the Benefits of Non Invasive Vein Treatments?
This new treatment will not only improve the appearance of your veins, but will also improve common symptoms of varicose veins including heaviness, throbbing, itching, and swelling.
Vein Treatment Recovery
After your Varithena treatment you should be able to resume your daily activities on the same day, however, you should avoid heavy exercise for at least one week.
Additionally, follow your provider’s instructions about compression stockings to allow for optimal healing.
