About Varithena Treatment
The effective, gentle varicose vein treatment can help restore your sense of well-being and is an alternative to surgery.
Swollen, Large, Twisted Veins Take a Toll
Living with vein problems can greatly affect your life, physically and emotionally. Symptoms can impact your sleep and work, your self-esteem and limit your ability to exercise and do the activities you enjoy. And if you’re like many people, you might assume that you have to put up with painful, unsightly varicose veins because they run in your family.
What Makes Varithena Different
Varithena is minimally invasive and doesn’t involve surgical vein stripping, eliminating the associated risks. You avoid general anesthesia, sedation and incisions. Varithena does not require multiple injections to numb the treatment site, unlike most thermal procedures, and doesn’t leave permanent foreign bodies behind after treatment.
The gentle, noninvasive treatment requires just one or two sticks for a treatment.
Most often, people can go back to doing many activities the very same day as treatment.
The entire procedure usually takes less than an hour.
Short treatment process
Most people only need one treatment to see results. In Varithena pivotal trials, only 3.4% of patients needed to re-treat an area included in the initial treatment session.1
Insurance carriers may cover treatment. Coverage may depend on the severity of the varicose veins and symptoms. Your physician’s office may be able to help you understand your coverage.
A Patient's Journey
Varithena was featured on Lifetime’s “The Balancing Act” about chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). In this short video, you’ll meet a pharmacist initially treated for CVI with surgical vein stripping. When her legs started bothering her again, she was surprised to learn there are newer treatments that require less downtime.
