Reincke Vein Center


Varithena FAQs

What is Varithena?

Reincke Vein Center in Sugar Land is proud to offer Varithena®, the only foam treatment approved by the FDA to treat enlarged leg veins. Once Varithena® is injected into a vein, it causes irritation of the vein lining, causing it to close.

After Varithena® treatment, the body redirects blood to nearby veins which greatly improves circulation and eliminates the patient's varicose vein symptoms. At our varicose vein clinic in Sugar Land, your Varithena® treatment can be done in less than an hour; it is a non-surgical procedure using a local anesthetic.

Am I a Candidate for Varithena Treatment?

Varithena® treatment is usually a great option for patients with enlarged varicose veins in the legs. Generally speaking, we do not recommend Varithena® if a patient has blood clots in their legs, and people who may have allergic reactions to the active agent, polidocanol.


Before any treatment, Dr. Reincke will perform a thorough examination and evaluation, including the patient's medical history, to ensure that the treatment is the best and safest approach.

How Much Does Varithena® Cost?

Varithena® is in almost every case covered by insurance, including Medicare.
