What is Varithena?
Varithena refers to a drug that is injected into the varicose veins directly. The doctor administers a tiny amount of the drug into the varicose vein, filling and collapsing it to decrease the appearance of your varicose veins.
What Causes Varicose Veins?
You have probably come across someone with visible, twisted, and enlarged dark blue or purple veins. These are what are referred to as varicose veins. According to recent medical statistics, about eleven million men and twenty-two million women have varicose veins between 40 and 80 years. Swollen varicose veins are not only unappealing cosmetically but can also cause severe consequences when left untreated. Medical research reveals that varicose veins occur when the valves are weak or damaged, causing the blood to flow backward and pool in the veins.
What Are the Varicose Veins Risk Factors?
While anyone can develop varicose veins, overweight women, men and children are more prone to getting varicose veins. Other varicose vein risk factors include; lacking to work out, being a woman, family history of the condition, and standing or sitting for a long time.
What Should You Expect During the Varithena Treatment?
The procedure takes less than an hour when you go for Varithena treatment to eliminate your varicose veins. The treatment is non-surgical and minimally invasive. The doctor will start by numbing your injection sites, but you won’t receive additional anesthesia. He will then administer the Varithena medication directly into the varicose veins.
After the treatment, you can resume your daily activities immediately. However, it’s recommendable to avoid heavy workouts. You will also require to wear tightly fitting stockings for up to two weeks on the treated legs and maintain the post-treatment bandages dry for 48 hours. For the best results, you should walk for more than ten minutes daily in the following weeks after treatment.
