In the past, larger or underlying varicose veins have been treated using vein removal surgery. At Fox Vein & Laser Experts, we offer innovative foam sclerotherapy to remove larger veins non-invasively and without downtime.
At Fox Vein Experts, Dr. Susan Fox uses Varithena, an FDA-cleared microfoam treatment that is used during traditional sclerotherapy. This medicated solution is injected directly into affected veins. While a safe and effective technique, this version of sclerotherapy is typically ideal for smaller veins, while larger varicose veins require more extensive treatment. With foam sclerotherapy, small amounts of the solution are rapidly mixed and agitated with small amounts of air in order to create a foamy consistency.
When injected as a foam rather than a liquid, the solution can target some of the larger, underlying varicose veins that cannot typically be treated with sclerotherapy. The foam irritates the lining of the vessel walls, causing them to stick together and clot, rerouting the blood through healthy veins.
Over time, the treated vein is naturally removed by the body and replaced with healthy tissue.
When performed by a licensed medical professional, foam sclerotherapy has several benefits:
