How Varithena Works
How Varithena Operates
Varithena facilitates a non-surgical approach to treating vein issues. Initially, the practitioner introduces a minimal amount of Varithena into the problematic vein area either through a catheter or via injection.
Varithena, in the form of foam, is then deployed into the targeted region, inducing the collapse of the problematic vein.
Consequently, blood flow redirects towards adjacent healthy veins. Notably, the foam deactivates upon contact with blood
What to Expect
Varithena treatment is characterized by minimal invasiveness and a lack of surgical procedures. Typically, the injection site is numbed, obviating the need for additional anesthesia.
The practitioner administers a modest dose of Varithena through a catheter or direct injection into the malfunctioning vein, with the entire procedure taking less than 30 minutes.
Post-administration, the practitioner applies bandages and compression stockings to the treated leg.
