At Las Vegas Vein Center, our main priority is our patient and taking the proper steps that lead to a speedy and full recovery. In order to achieve this, we utilize cutting-edge procedures that are minimally invasive and will allow you to get back to your everyday routine as quickly as possible. To treat varicose veins in the saphenous vein, one treatment we offer at Las Vegas Vein Center is Varithena.
What is Varithena?
Varithena is the only FDA-approved foam treatment for varicose veins within the great saphenous vein (GSV) system of the leg. The injectable foam is a prescribed medicine used by the qualified doctors at Las Vegas Vein Center to eliminate the reflux and painful symptoms of your varicose veins.
How Does it Help?
With the help of ultrasound guidance, your venous system is located in your legs, and a tiny catheter is directed into the diseased veins. The Varithena foam is then injected to seal the refluxing vein segments. The blood will then naturally be directed to healthy vein systems, and your body will shrink the diseased veins and absorb them. This will improve your vein appearances as well as relieve symptoms of heaviness, achiness, swelling, throbbing and itching.
The procedure is performed in our office and does not require any incisions or local anesthesia. You will see results and relief from your symptoms shortly after the procedure as well as an accelerated recovery time, allowing you to return to your normal activities quickly.
You shouldn’t have to suffer the painful symptoms of your varicose veins as well as spending large amounts of time recovering from your treatments. At Las Vegas Vein Center, we offer solutions that will quickly eliminate the symptoms and appearances of your varicose veins.
