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.

How is the procedure performed?

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.

How long does the procedure take?

It takes approximately one hour to complete the procedure.

Care after treatment

  • Do not remove bandages applied by your doctor until after 24 hours.
  • Wear compression stockings right after removing bandages applied by your Doctor.
  • Avoid participating in strenuous exercise for the first 7 days after the procedure.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure in the area.


Can Varicose Veins come back after treatment?

Because there is no definitive cure for weak vein valves, some patients may have problems with their varicose veins again. The recommendation is to perform a preventive Sonogram, if some of the symptoms reappear.

Does my medical insurance cover Microphlebectomy treatment?

Varicose Veins and Venous Insufficiency are medical conditions that can be covered by most NY State Medical Insurance.
