Treatment That's Gentle and Minimally Invasive

No surgery. Little downtime. There’s no reason to wait to treat your varicose veins.

A Winning Way to Treat Varicose Veins

Varithena offers it all—a surprisingly quick and gentle experience that’s covered by most major insurance plans. It’s a proven varicose vein therapy you can trust, and most people quickly return to activities they love. Most people find treatment to be nearly painless. Patients reporting pain at the injection or application site in clinical trials was 4.0%.1

Some people only need a single treatment. More treatments may be needed, depending on the number and size of veins that need to be treated.

Over 100,000 Varithena procedures have been performed.

“The improvement was like going from night to day.”

Why Treatment is Different

There are no incisions, sedation or general anesthesia. Your physician may recommend Varithena, because unlike thermal ablation, it:

  • Is effective to treat veins of different sizes up and down your leg
  • Doesn’t need a wire to be inserted along the length of your vein
  • Is given in as little as one or two needle sticks per treatment
  • Doesn’t use heat, removing the risk of burns

And unlike glue, Varithena dissolves in the bloodstream after treatment, leaving nothing permanently in your vein.

What Treatment Is Like

Unlike some other foams, Varithena is FDA approved. During a treatment session, a physician injects the microfoam inside diseased veins to close them down, allowing blood to flow through other, healthier veins.
