Varithena is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical procedure used to treat the appearance and symptoms of varicose veins. Treatment often takes just 30 minutes or less, and patients can go home the same day.
If you’re experiencing pain, discomfort or embarrassment from varicose veins, contact the vein specialists at Illuminate Center for Veins & Aesthetics. Our Board Certified Vein & Aesthetic Experts are highly experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of vein disease.
Varithena is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses a medicated foam to eliminate varicose veins. Only local anesthesia is required, and treatment typically takes one hour or less to complete.
The vein doctor will numb the area to be treated and inject a small amount of foam using a catheter. This foam causes the vein to swell and close, allowing blood flow to be re-routed to healthy veins throughout the body.
Patients may feel some pressure during the injection, and mild tenderness in their leg after the procedure. This tenderness will dissipate in about a week, and most patients are able to resume normal activity within 24 hours after the procedure is done.
Varithena is usually covered by insurance. Contact Illuminate Center for Veins & Aesthetics if you do not see your insurance carrier listed as one of our approved insurance plans. We accept most insurance providers, including Medicare.
