Micro-Foam Sclerotherapy (VarithenaTM) – Q&A

VarithenaTM is an injectable foam that is used in treating varicose veins and larger diseased veins that worsen circulation. VarithenaTM is injected under ultrasound guidance in an outpatient setting.  VarithenaTM does not require any incisions and usually takes less than 30 minutes to administer. Patients may resume most activities same day and heavy exercise after 1 week.

Micro-Foam (VarithenaTM) treats Venous Reflux Disease – which causes Varicose Veins, Spider Veins, Leg or ankle swelling, Leg Pain and Aching, Leg Cramps, Restless leg, Leg heaviness or fatigue, Burning or Itching skin, Skin Changes or Rash

Venous reflux disease is a progressive medical condition that if left untreated, will likely worsen over time and develop into a more serious form of venous disease called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).  CVI leads to more serious outcomes such as poor healing wounds, permanent skin damage, and an increased risk of deep blood clot.

  • The procedure takes about 20-40 minutes in most cases.
  • The procedure is almost always a permanent fix for the diseased veins being treated.
  • Most people will need 1-2 treatments with VarithenaTM depending on the severity of their venous reflux disease.
  • Patients get relief/improvement of symptoms after just a few days
  • Varithena is non-surgical and is often the quickest procedure
  • Absolutely no incision and results are much better than traditional sclerotherapy
  • The recovery time is very minimal, and some people have no personal restrictions
