What You Need to Know About the Varithena Procedure

Dr. Magnant and his team perform Varithena in both the Fort Myers and Bonita Springs offices as an outpatient procedure. Varithena is a premixed polidocanol foam that is injected under ultrasound guidance into residual leaky veins that may not have been able to be treated with Endovenous Ablation due to the location of the vein.

The Varithena microfoam fills and treats the diseased vein, which eventually collapses. The foam is then diluted in the bloodstream and flushed out. Blood is then diverted to other healthy veins in your leg.

Varithena treatment typically takes less than an hour. Common side effects of Varithena include minor skin irritation, itching, numbness or tingling, and minor swelling at the injection site.

After your Varithena treatment, you will be able to resume light activities as early as the same day of treatment. In addition, you will be encouraged to wear compression stockings for up to 2 weeks and will undergo follow up ultrasound study 2 weeks post Varithena treatment.
