The management of varicose tributary veins of the great saphenous vein has traditionally been treated with radio-frequency ablation or endovenous laser ablation. Now there is a new non-thermal non-tumescent ablation procedure called Varithena®. Varithena (polidocanol injectable foam) is a prescription medicine used to treat varicose veins caused by problems with the great saphenous vein (GSV) and other related veins in the leg’s GSV system. Varithena improves symptoms related to or caused by varicose veins, and the appearance of varicose veins.
(ASA) expertly treats all vein issues.

How Varithena Works
Treatment with Varithena is a nonsurgical procedure. The provider will fill the problem area of your vein with a small amount of Varithena using a small tube called a catheter or with an injection. Varithena is a foam that flows into the area and causes the problem vein to collapse. This allows your blood flow to shift to nearby healthy veins. The foam is deactivated when it comes in contact with blood.
What To Expect
Treatment with Varithena is minimally invasive and nonsurgical. The provider usually numbs the injection site, but no additional anesthesia is required. The provider administers a small amount of Varithena through a catheter or by direct injection into the malfunctioning vein. It usually takes less than 30 minutes to administer Varithena. Following administration, the provider applies bandages and compression stockings to the leg.
Benefits of Varithena
In 2 placebo-controlled studies, most patients treated with Varithena experienced these results:
- Improved symptoms: The majority of patients reported improvement in symptoms including heaviness, achiness, swelling, throbbing, and itching
- Improved vein appearance: The majority of patients experienced improved vein appearance in assessments by both patients and doctors.
