What is Varithena?

If you have large varicose veins, treatments like endovenous ablation and sclerotherapy may not be the best solution. In these cases, our board-certified vein specialists at Vitality Vein Care offer Varithena. This safe and effective treatment is often performed on large varicose veins without the expense, downtime, or worry of surgery. While minimally invasive, this treatment is very effective at collapsing these varicose veins, allowing our Plano, McKinney, and Frisco, TX patients to treat the aesthetic issues involved with varicose veins, as well as the underlying issue. For more information, contact Drs. Daniel Rizzo, Bradley Hart, or Aaron Roberts in Prosper, TX today.

Am I A Candidate For Varithena?

Varithena to treat large varicose veins in the legs can be an excellent option for many patients. The best candidates have large, tortuous (twisted) veins, veins that are above and below the knee, or veins that have been previously treated with other methods.

Those who are NOT candidates for Varithena are often those who:

  • Have blood clots in their legs

  • Are allergic to polidocanol

During your consultation at Vitality Vein Care, we will examine your veins and talk to you about your medical history to determine if Varithena is the right treatment for your varicose veins.

What Can I Expect from Varithena?

During your Varithena treatment, we will use an ultrasound to guide us throughout the procedure. Once we reach the varicose vein in question, we will inject a sclerosing foam. We'll have you walk around for 10 – 15 minutes while we monitor you. This precaution is taken to ensure you have no immediate reaction to the medication. After your appointment, you may experience pain, tenderness, or swelling in the treated leg. This, however, shouldn't last long. Once you go home, we'd like you to take at least one walk for ten minutes a day for the next month. We will also have you wear compression stockings for two weeks or so following your treatment. There are some cases where we will need to schedule follow-up Varithena treatments. We will schedule these following your appointment.

Varithena FAQ

Does Varithena hurt?

No, it doesn’t. Unlike other methods which require an incision or stitches, Varithena treatments are finished in only one or two easy needle sticks and are virtually pain-free.

Is Varithena safe?

Yes, it is. Varithena is approved by the FDA to reduce the appearance of varicose veins.

How quickly does Varithena work?

Most patients can expect to see results within 1 – 2 weeks. Optimal results are usually seen in 3 – 4 weeks.

Is Varithena the same thing as sclerotherapy?

Varithena is similar to sclerotherapy. Both inject a sclerosant in the vein to shrink it and reduce its appearance. Varithena uses foam sclerosant and ultrasound guidance to accurately target the affected veins and can better treat large varicose veins than other treatments.
