If you have problematic varicose veins, ClariVein® treatment could be right for you, but before considering the treatment, you should understand how it works. In short, ClariVein® works by closing off unwanted veins within the body.
During the treatment, a special catheter is inserted into the treatment area, and with the help of a rotating wire, the device closes off varicose veins. The wire releases agents in every direction and treats the afflicted area.
ClariVein® treatment is minimally-invasive and doesn’t require you to stay in a hospital for recovery. The treatment is performed in the comfort of our office, and when you’re finished, you can return home, since minimal to no downtime is involved.
How ClariVein® Treatment Works
The main purpose of ClariVein® is to eliminate troublesome veins. During the procedure, a thin catheter is inserted into your body, and the process is almost identical to what you’d experience when receiving a standard IV.
However, this procedure is different because there is a wire inside which connects to a motorized handle. The motor rapidly spins the wire, and a small portion of the wire extends beyond the catheter. When the wire is removed, a special solution is injected, and it’s responsible for closing off the vein.
Should You Consider ClariVein® Treatment?
If you’re considering this procedure, you’ll need to come in for an evaluation. During this time, we can check the severity of your condition, and we can decide if you’re a good fit for the treatment. In most cases, ClariVein® treatment doesn’t involve much discomfort, as no anesthetic is required.
How Does It Treat Varicose Veins?
ClariVein® has been touted as one of the best treatments for varicose veins, and it can deliver better results than some alternative treatments. When compared with radiofrequency treatments, ClariVein® involves less recovery time and discomfort.
With a combination of medication and mechanical manipulation, this treatment option can give you the results you’ve been looking for, and many patients would agree that it’s even better than laser treatment. The combination of technologies used by ClariVein® can safely seal off afflicted veins, and the mechanical process eliminates the need to heat the veins.
There is also no need for tumescent anesthesia, which reduces the overall risk and increases the comfort of the procedure. The thin wire used for the treatment administers the medication directly into the afflicted veins. The medication causes the vein walls to collapse, and eventually, your body’s natural processes eliminate the closed vein. As a result, you benefit from an improved appearance.
