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