Improves Vein Appearance and 5 Key Varicose Vein Symptoms

Your doctor may choose to use Varithena®, because unlike other therapies, Varithena®:


  • Is effective to treat veins of different sizes above and below the knee
  • Requires no incisions, sedation or general anesthesia
  • Does not require a wire to be inserted along the length of your vein
  • Is administered in as little as one or two needle sticks per treatment, instead of 10-14
  • Does not use heat, eliminating the risk of thermal injury
  • Does not use glue and dissolves in the bloodstream after treatment, leaving no foreign bodies in the vein

How does Varithena® work?

  • The doctor administers a small amount of Varithena® (polidocanol injectable foam) through a catheter or by direct injection into the malfunctioning vein
  • The foam fills and treats the desired section of the vein
  • The diseased vein collapses and the foam is deactivated

What is treatment like?

Treatment with Varithena® is minimally invasive and nonsurgical (no incisions required). The doctor usually numbs the injection site, but no additional anesthesia is required.

How soon can I get back to my normal activities?

Patients may resume some activities the same day as treatment. Heavy exercise should be avoided for one week. Post-treatment bandages need to be kept dry and in place for 48 hours, and compression stockings must be worn on the treated leg for 2 weeks. For a month, patients should walk at least 10 minutes a day and avoid long periods of inactivity.
