Varithena is the brand name for a minimally invasive varicose vein treatment called foam sclerotherapy.
During this procedure, Varithena foam (polidocanol infused with nitrogen gas to form micro-bubbles) is injected into and fills the affected area of the vein. The polidocanol irritates the vein wall causing it to collapse. This allows the body to naturally redirect blood flow to other, healthy veins.
This procedure is performed in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia. It can be used to treat either large or small varicose veins. There is no downtime for this procedure; however, you may be asked to wear compressions stocking for up to two weeks following the procedure.
