Fox Vein Experts Now Treating 30% More With Foam Sclerotherapy for Varicose Veins
Susan B. Fox, DO, fellowship trained in vascular medicine and boarded in vascular medicine and venous disease (phlebology), today announced that Fox Vein & Laser Experts, located in Broward County, Florida, is seeing a 30% increase in the last six months from patients benefiting from foam sclerotherapy, a highly safe and effective therapy for varicose veins.
Fox Vein & Laser Experts treats varicose veins with Varithena, an FDA-cleared proprietary foam used to treat large varicose veins. Varithena has proved effective in improving the appearance of varicose veins and relieving the pressure and heaviness felt in the leg(s) of patients who are suffering from venous insufficiency. This minimally invasive treatment involves injecting a microfoam into the affected vein that causes it dissolve and close. Blood reroutes to healthy veins, and the treated vein is eventually naturally absorbed by the body and disappears.
“Varithena is a highly effective product that greatly benefits our patients,” said Susan B. Fox, DO, owner of Fox Vein & Laser Experts in Broward County, Florida. “Prime candidates for foam sclerotherapy are those who have had prior endovenous laser treatments or who experience the symptoms of heavy legs due to swelling, edema, soreness, or tiredness.”
Foam Sclerotherapy Is Simple Varicose Vein Treatment
Foam sclerotherapy is a quick and easy often ultrasound-guided treatment option for varicose veins. It can be performed in less than an hour, and most people can resume normal activities within the same day. After an injection of Varithena, patients are advised to elevate the leg and perform this quick exercise: point and flex the toes 50 times to flush the fluid through the leg.
There is no need for incisions or stitches, and most patients will see results after only a single treatment. In clinical trials, only 4% of patients reported feeling pain at the injection or application site.
At-home recovery recommendations include avoiding heavy exercise for approximately one week, keeping bandages in place and out of water for 48 hours following the treatment, wearing compression stockings on the treated leg for about two weeks to aid blood flow and circulation, and adding at least 10 minutes of daily walking to your routine.
Foam Sclerotherapy Miami Consultations Available With Fox Vein Experts
Fox Vein & Laser Experts will perform a foam sclerotherapy Miami consultation to determine whether a patient is a good candidate for the treatment before scheduling any appointments. During that consultation, potential patients should make any medical conditions known, including any kind of arterial disease, history of blood clots, any recent surgeries or hospital visits, reduced mobility, and pregnancy or recent pregnancy. The typical candidate is someone experiencing symptoms such as leg swelling, aching, soreness, tiredness, and ulcerations and sores due to venous insufficiency.
Varithena is covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare, however coverage may depend on symptoms and severity of each individual case. To book your foam sclerotherapy treatments, call Fox Vein & Laser Experts at 954-627-1045 and a team member will guide you through the appointment process and can answer any questions you may have regarding insurance coverage.
