It is a common misconception that removing large varicose veins in the legs is an extensive, painful process. Advances in vascular medicine have now made it possible to treat venous deficiencies using safer, less invasive methods, such as Clarivein®. At Fox Vein Experts, we offer Clarivein® to help clear the skin and ease the symptoms of varicose veins without surgery or downtime.
What is Clarivein®?
The first treatment of its kind in vascular medicine, Clarivein® is a specially designed infusion catheter that is capable of rotating 360 degrees inside of deficient veins while dispersing prescription medication. This procedure is minimally-invasive, fast, and typically allows patients to return to work the same day.
During a Clarivein® procedure, a pin-sized incision is made in the skin to create a low profile of entry for the catheter device. It is smaller when compared to other vein treatments, allowing for a nearly-invisible entry. This process causes minimal to no pain for the patient, and the rotating wire tip is precisely placed into the dysfunctional vein. Once the wire has achieved an optimal position within the vein, it is gently rotated 360 degrees, dispersing medication throughout the entire vein.
The medication disrupts the lining of the vessels, causing them to stick together and seal the vein. Underlying varicose veins can be difficult to treat with other vein removal techniques, but with Clarivein®, the entire mass of the vein is effectively treated and eventually removed by the body by natural processes.
What are the Benefits of the Clarivein® Procedure?
In addition to clearing the skin of varicose veins and helping to improve overall vascular health, having your deficient veins removed with Clarivein® has several benefits:
- Unlike heat-based vascular treatments, this procedure does not require anesthetic
- The pin-sized point of entry leaves no visible scarring and requires no sutures
- This treatment is fast and is ideal for patients with busy schedules
- Once larger varicose veins are removed, the risk of developing smaller spider veins near the surface of the skin decreases
Are There Any Side Effects?
This minimally-invasive procedure requires minimal to no aftercare, although a daily walking regimen may be suggested by our medical team in order to facilitate proper circulation after treatment. Any residual bruising or soreness at the point of entry is minimal and typically fades shortly after treatment. There are a lot of vein centers that offer vein therapy but you came to the best one.
