Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive, in-office procedure used for the treatment of varicose veins. Using duplex ultrasound technology, the vein specialists of the Goldman Vein Institute are able to treat bulging veins, in the office, without surgery, and no downtime.
Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy requires the use of FDA-approved sclerosant called VARITHENA™, which is specially formulated to treat varicose and spider veins. The sclerosant is foamed and then introduced, drops at a time, into the affected vein at several locations. Combined with specialized microfoam techniques, the sclerosant solution closes the varicose veins.
In addition to cosmetic relief, the treatment provides relief from tired, fatigued, heavy, restless, crampy, swollen and aching legs. Treatment also neutralizes the potential for life threatening consequences of varicose veins, such as phlebitis, venous stasis ulcers, blood clots and pulmonary emboli.
Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy procedures utilizing VARITHENA™ at the Goldman Vein Institute in Wellington and Jupiter, Florida are performed by our highly qualified and certified vein specialists and Registered Vascular Technologists (RVT).
Utilizing state of the art duplex ultrasound with Doppler wave-form technology allows the physician and RVT to locate and evaluate any underlying bulging varicosities with pinpoint accuracy. Our vein doctors deliver the FDA-approved sclerosant directly into the vein, under real-time ultrasound guidance and monitoring. This allows for a safe and effective mode of treatment, reducing the potential for side effects, and allowing for pinpoint precision treatment, in only treating varicose veins, leaving healthy veins unaffected. The foamed sclerosant is then able to close abnormal varicose veins by means of protein denaturation, and subsequently, the body, over time, absorbs the closed vein, resulting in both cosmetic and symptomatic relief.
After this minimally invasive procedure, our patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately. These treatments are usually covered by insurance.
