ClariVein treatment is fairly different from other minimally invasive vein treatments; instead of generating thermal energy to collapse the diseased vein, it does so by combining mechanical pressure and a medicine called a sclerosant. The ClariVein device consists of a rotating wire that damages the diseased vein’s walls while simultaneously delivering sclerosant, a medicine that fuses the vein walls from the inside.
The ClariVein Procedure
The vein doctor will numb a small area on the part of your body with large varicose veins, usually the inside of the thighs. After the anesthesia kicks in, the vein doctor makes a small incision on the skin’s surface and inserts the ClariVein device, which consists of a small catheter with a rotating tip. The device is driven into the diseased vein under ultrasound guidance and activated. The rotating wire damages the diseased vein’s walls and delivers a sclerosant medicine, making the varicose veins collapse and seal shut.
The ClariVein procedure concludes within 30 minutes, following which you can resume your daily activities and work. You might experience minor post-treatment discomfort and bruising, but it’s entirely tolerable.
