What Is Varithena?
Varithena is an FDA-approved polidocanol injectable foam used for treating varicose veins. Varithena, also known as microfoam chemical ablation, is injected into the problematic areas of your varicose veins. The microfoam fills and collapses the veins, allowing blood flow to shift to healthier veins.

- Veins above the knee

Vein & Body Specialists Reviews
Very nice place to be treated for varicose veins and other personal enhancement issues. Everyone is very nice and helpful. I have just started going here, but it seems like I will be happy I picked Vein and Body!
I had the Opus Laser treatment done, around my eyes, by Jasmine. I personally didnt have ANY pain. I don't have any redness and my eyes feel cool and "energized!!" I go back in 3 weeks. Staff is super friendly and down to earth. 10/10 recommend!
I love vein and body! The staff is so friendly and the place is always so clean. Thanks for helping me, Chad!!

My daughter and I had facials with Jasmine. Loved it and the staff is wonderful and so engaging :-) Of course, facial was amazing!

What Can I Expect from Varithena Treatment?
The doctor will insert a small needle or catheter tube into the area to be treated. The Varithena microfoam will fill and collapse the targeted veins under ultrasonic guidance. When the veins collapse, blood flow will move to healthier veins nearby. The entire procedure usually takes under an hour, and patients can typically return to light activity the same day. Many of our patients require only one treatment to achieve desired results. Like sclerotherapy, veins will begin to disappear in a few days and fade away entirely within eight weeks, with some patients seeing full results in as soon as one week.
