How is Varicose Vein Treatment Done with Foam Method?

Foam-based varicose vein treatment is one of the most popular non-surgical methods applied for varicose vein treatment worldwide in recent years, and it is widely preferred by many clinics and doctors in our country as well. Known also as sclerotherapy, foam-based varicose vein treatment is an extremely advantageous method for both the patient and the physician.

What is Foam-based Varicose Vein Treatment?

Foam, the most advanced method developed for non-surgical varicose vein treatment, can be applied to all dilated veins larger than 1mm. While none of the methods developed or tried until today could be applied solely for varicose vein treatment, foam sclerotherapy can be applied alone to all types of varicose veins.

In the past, varicose vein treatments that could only be performed with surgery exposed patients to many disadvantages such as incisions, stitches, and dressings. Nowadays, thanks to the brand new developments brought by technology, patients can continue their daily lives without interruption after treatment.

How is Foam-based Varicose Vein Treatment Done?

In this treatment, performed with a very thin needle, the goal is achieved by injecting a special medication into the diseased vein. When the special medication is injected into the vein, it damages the vein and terminates its functions. Since the vein is eliminated, existing varicose veins come to an end. You may have a question in your mind like, “Isn’t it harmful to eliminate the vein?” However, varicose vein treatments performed with surgery also rely on removing the vein from the body by cutting it. In other words, the treatment of varicose veins is based on eliminating the problematic vein, regardless of the method. Therefore, foam treatment does not pose any risk or harm.

Varicose vein treatment with the foam method can be easily applied to both small, medium, and large varicose veins.

How Long Does the Treatment Take?

The application duration can vary depending on the condition of existing varicose veins, typically taking around 20-30 minutes. After the quick and practical treatment, you can leave our clinic on your own after a 10-15 minute rest, without interrupting your work, school, or social life.

A bandage that needs to be worn on the treated leg for an average of 3-4 days is applied. The information on how long you should use the bandage is determined by your doctor based on the prevalence of varicose veins and the applied treatment after the treatment. In addition to the bandage, wearing varicose stockings for a few days may also be recommended.
