Varithena™ veins treatment

Non-Surgical Vein Treatment in Johns Creek, GA

What is Varithena® Vein Injection Treatment?

Varithena® is an innovative treatment offered at the Vein Center at Johns Creek that can effectively address a range of venous conditions. Here’s how it works:

  • The doctor administers a small amount of Varithena® through a catheter or by direct injection into the malfunctioning vein.
  • The Varithena® microfoam fills and treats the desired section of the vein.
  • The diseased vein collapses and the microfoam is deactivated.
  • When the malfunctioning vein collapses, blood flow shifts to healthier veins nearby.

  • Foam Sclerosant: Varithena® utilizes a specialized foam sclerosant, which is a medication that is transformed into foam form. This foam is then injected into the affected veins to treat underlying venous insufficiency.
  • Improved Blood Flow: The foam sclerosant helps to collapse and close off the diseased veins, redirecting blood flow to healthier veins nearby. This process improves circulation and reduces symptoms such as pain, swelling, and discomfort.
  • Minimally Invasive: Varithena® is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that is performed in-office. The foam is precisely injected into the targeted veins using a small catheter, guided by ultrasound imaging for accuracy.
  • Customized Treatment: Each Varithena® procedure is tailored to the individual patient's needs and specific venous condition. The number of injections and the amount of foam used will vary depending on the size and location of the affected veins.
  • Quick Recovery: Following the procedure, most patients can resume their normal activities relatively quickly. However, it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise and prolonged periods of standing or sitting for a few days post-treatment.
  • Long-lasting Results: A Varithena® injection provides long-lasting results, with many patients experiencing significant improvement in their symptoms and appearance of their veins. However, it is important to note that additional treatments may be needed to achieve optimal outcomes.

Varithena® varicose injection treatment can address a wide range of varicose veins in the GSV system, including:

  • Tortuous (twisted) veins
  • Veins above and below the knee
  • Veins with small, medium, and large diameters
  • Veins previously treated with other methods

Varithena® does not treat all forms of varicose veins. Please talk with your vein specialist to see if Varithena™ may be right for you.
