What Are the Benefits of Varithena?

When you think of foam, varicose veins probably aren’t at the top of your mind. However, Varithena is a microfoam used at Vein Institute Hattiesburg and D'Iberville that is an excellent choice for eliminating unsightly varicose veins. Benefits of Varithena injections used with ultrasound imaging at our Hattiesburg and D'Iberville, MS office include:

  • Causing the affected veins to collapse and seal, diverting blood to healthier veins
  • Addressing the appearance of varicose veins and resulting pain
  • Minimally invasive treatments with no incisions
  • Effectively treats different-sized veins
  • Little to no downtime
  • FDA-approved

Your Varithena treatment will take around 30 minutes to perform. Most patients that are candidates may only require a single treatment, but some may require multiple sessions. Prior to injecting Varithena into the dysfunctional vein, Dr. Thompson may apply a numbing gel to the area. Then, using an ultrasound, he will inject the sclerosing foam into your varicose vein. The foam works by causing the vein to collapse, and blood flow is then redirected to healthier veins. Afterward, you should notice less pain and visibility of your varicose veins. There is no downtime, although you may need to avoid strenuous activity for a few days.

What a wonderful place. I'm truly happy I went to see Dr Thompson. He closed an ugly feeder vein that has been my shame for several years. I can't wait for shorts and swimsuit weather. And all of his staff are extra sweet and caring.  It was an excellent experience all the way around. I highly recommend the Vein Institute! You won't be disappointed.
