Varithena® Offers Symptom Improvement in an Injectible

At Athens Vein & Aesthetics we offer Varithena® (polidocanol injectable foam) to treat varicose veins caused by problems with the great saphenous vein (GSV) and other related veins in the leg’s GSV system.

Varithena® improves symptoms related to or caused by varicose veins, as well as the appearance of varicose veins.

“Because Varithena® is an injectable that doesn’t require incisions or stitches, most patients report almost no pain during the minimally invasive procedure.

We do offer the Pro-Nox Nitrous Oxide System for pain and anxiety relief.

Athens Vein & Aesthetics is one of the few practices in the area offering this combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide which is effective enough to ease your pain and anxiety without additional medication.


What to Expect After Varithena®

First Aid wrap

After your in-office procedure, your provider will apply bandages after your  procedure. A compression stocking is taken home and used the following four to five days.


Because Varithena® is well tolerated by most people, you’re likely to go back to most normal activities the same day. You should avoid heavy exercise for one week.


Our vein specialists use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to determine your eligibility for the procedure.

Just like with any medical procedure, there are associated risks and complications with Varithena®. Once we have a full assessment, we review your medical history to rule out other conditions that could present any risks.

"I called Athens Vein to get a second opinion after I was unsure about the procedure another place was going to do. They answered my questions and I scheduled an appointment. I had the varicose vein ablation procedure done today and everything went very smooth and easy. The staff are very patient and answered all of my questions."
