MICROFOAM

Endovenous microfoam therapy is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to treat venous insufficiency and varicose veins. The treatment contains microfoam used to treat large varicose veins of up to 12 mm, which usually causes pain. After the procedure with microfoam, the varicose veins collapse and diminish in size, eliminating pain and restoring the aesthetic and healthy appearance of the legs.

Advantages of microfoam treatment

Microfoam is a treatment that, compared with other treatments used to eliminate varicose veins, leaves no scars and is done in a short period of time (only a few minutes).

With microfoam therapy, the risk of infection is also lower, and usually, antibiotics are not prescribed because the incision is made with a very small needle.

The treatment of Varicose Veins with microfoam is straightforward. The foam medicine is injected into the affected vein with the guide of an ultrasound.

During the treatment, the vein collapses immediately and it is absorbed by the body in a natural process.
