Microfoam Sclerotherapy – Varithena™
Hamilton Vein Center offers Varithena™ in our vein clinics across Texas.
What are the Benefits of Varithena™?
- Relieves itching, burning, aching, swelling associated with vein disease
- Foam method increases surface area of sclerosant for improved results
How is Varithena™ Performed?
Varithena™ works much like traditional Sclerotherapy, however Varithena™ microfoam is generated by a proprietary device which produces a more consistent and cohesive foam capable of safely and effectively treating a wide range of vein diameters. The microfoam bubbles, made from a blend of Carbon Dioxide and Oxygen, are injected directly into the veins through a tiny needle or catheter. Varithena™ irritates the inner wall of the malfunctioning vein, causing it to collapse and redirect blood flow into healthier veins nearby. Your body will then dissolve the treated vein over time.
Some patients require more than one microfoam sclerotherapy Varithena™ session. The number of sessions will depend on the size, location and number of veins the patient has.
What Can I Expect After Varithena™?
After Varithena™, we will prescribe compression stockings or bandages to wear in order to aid in the vein resolution process. Typically, patients notice results anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months.
How Much Does Varithena™ Cost?
Varithena™ is often covered by insurance companies depending on the patient’s signs, symptoms, and ultrasound results. Please call us today to schedule your consultation and discuss all of your pricing and financing options for vein treatment including Varithena™.
