The Varithena procedure is minimally invasive, with a doctor administering a small amount of medication through a catheter or by direct injection into the malfunctioning vein. No incision is required and the procedure usually lasts less than an hour.
Along with treating the appearance of varicose veins, Varithena provides relief from fatigued, heavy, achy, restless, crampy, swollen, throbbing, and itchy legs.
The treatment also neutralizes the potential for life-threatening consequences of varicose veins, such as phlebitis, venous stasis ulcers, blood clots, and pulmonary emboli.
Most patients can resume regular activities after treatment, however, heavy exercise should be avoided for one week. Walking daily for a minimum of ten minutes is advised, for at least one month following the procedure. Patients should avoid extended periods of inactivity.
