Varithena (Polidocanol Injectable Foam) 1% | The Vein Institute of Phoenix | 480-496-2655 | Non Surgical Treatment of Varicose & Spider Veins | Dr. Kelli Favata

POLIDOCANOL INJECTABLE FOAM
Varithena is the only FDA-approved foam treatment for varicose veins of the great saphenous vein (GSV) as well as tortuous bulging varicose veins. Varithena has been proven to improve the 5 most common symptoms patients consider most symptomatic, such as achiness, swelling, throbbing, heaviness, and itching.

Some patients receiving Varithena (polidocanol injectable foam) only need a single treatment.
 Additional treatment may be needed, depending on the number and size of veins to be treated.

 

During treatment

  • • It usually takes the doctor LESS THEN 10 MINUTES TO ADMINISTER VARITHENA & FULLY TREA THE UNHEALTHY VEIN.
  • • Treatment with Varithena is minimally invasive and nonsurgical (no incisions required)
  • • The doctor usually numbs the injection site, but no additional anesthesia is required
  • • The doctor administers a small amount of Varithena through a catheter or by direct injection into the malfunctioning vein
  • • Following administration, the doctor applies bandages and compression stockings to the leg

 

After treatment

  • • Patients may resume some activities the same day as treatment.
  • • Heavy exercise should be avoided for one week.
  • • Post-treatment bandages need to be kept dry and in place for 48 hours, and compression stockings must be worn on the treated leg for 2 weeks.
  • • Patients should walk at least 10 minutes a day and avoid long periods of inactivity.
 If you have received treatment with Varithena, your doctor will give you additional instructions for post-treatment self care.
