Varithena (polidocanol injectable foam)

Before Treatment:
She came into Dr. Lawrence’s office with a problem of veins appearing on her legs. As a young woman, she was concerned with how they looked and sought after some treatment in order to address the issue and bring back her confidence.

After Treatment:
She is seeing a great improvement in terms of the appearance of veins on her legs and has also experienced a dramatic reduction in the debilitating symptoms that came with varicose veins.

Patients with symptomatic venous insufficiency involving the saphenous and lesser saphenous veins are typically treated with either radiofrequency ablation (ClosureFast) or cyanoacrylate medical adhesive (Venaseal). Certain veins such as the anterior accessory saphenous, or large incompetent varicose veins that persist following one of the above ablative therapies, are ideally treated with an ultrasound-guided injection of polidocanol foam (Varithena). This is typically accomplished through a single needle stick and is painless. The foam irritates the lining of the vein causing it to close.  The body reroutes blood through the healthy veins, thus eliminating the discomfort and appearance of the varicose veins and improving the vascular health of the leg.
