Varicose Veins Using Varithena Sclerotherapy
Varithena sclerotherapy is an innovative and FDA-approved treatment for varicose veins, introduced as an alternative to traditional methods such as surgery or laser therapy. It is particularly effective in treating larger, more complex veins. This therapy is performed in our state-of-the-art Vein Therapy Center and is designed to address the root cause of varicose veins – the underlying venous insufficiency.
Key aspects of Varithena sclerotherapy include:
- Microfoam Solution: Varithena utilizes a specially formulated microfoam solution that is injected directly into the varicose veins. This foam has unique properties that enable it to displace blood within the veins and adhere to the vein walls, effectively treating the affected areas.
- Controlled Application: The foam is precisely delivered into the problematic veins under the guidance of ultrasound imaging. This ensures accurate placement and the ability to target specific areas that require treatment.
- Closure of Veins: The microfoam solution causes the affected veins to close off, preventing further blood flow and rerouting it to healthier veins. Over time, the closed veins are naturally absorbed by the body.
Treatment of Varicose Veins
Varithena sclerotherapy provides a comprehensive approach to treating varicose veins, addressing not only the visible symptoms but also the underlying cause – venous insufficiency. Here’s how Varithena works to treat varicose veins effectively:
- Removal of Unwanted Veins: The injected microfoam solution targets the diseased veins, causing them to close and seal off. This results in the elimination of unwanted and unsightly veins.
- Improved Blood Flow: With the closed veins no longer allowing blood to pool or flow in the wrong direction, blood circulation is improved, and pressure on the surrounding veins is reduced.
- Alleviation of Symptoms: Varithena sclerotherapy not only treats the cosmetic concerns but also relieves symptoms associated with varicose veins, such as pain, swelling, and discomfort.
The Benefits of Varithena Sclerotherapy
- Minimally Invasive: Varithena is a minimally invasive procedure, requiring only a small incision for catheter insertion. This reduces scarring and promotes a faster recovery.
- High Success Rates: Clinical studies have shown that Varithena sclerotherapy has a high success rate in closing off varicose veins, alleviating symptoms, and improving the cosmetic appearance of the legs.
- Rapid Procedure: The treatment can typically be completed in a relatively short period, allowing patients to return to their daily activities with minimal downtime.
- Pain Reduction: Patients report less pain and discomfort during and after Varithena sclerotherapy compared to traditional surgical methods.
- Improved Quality of Life: Beyond the cosmetic benefits, Varithena sclerotherapy can enhance the overall quality of life by eliminating discomfort and increasing mobility.
- Customized Treatment: Varithena can be tailored to each patient’s specific needs, making it a versatile option for a wide range of varicose vein cases.
- Lasting Results: The closed veins do not reopen, and blood is rerouted through healthier vessels, ensuring long-lasting results.
