Varicose veins are a problem for many people, especially women. These troublesome, bulging veins occur most often in the legs and can cause a great deal of discomfort, pain, fatigue or numbing for sufferers. It’s also possible that they can lead to more serious medical issues, like blood clots.
While there are self-management methods that can sometimes help control symptoms, such as elevating the legs and wearing compression garments, there are times when it is advisable to have the veins addressed medically.
If you feel that your varicose veins require intervention and are worried about an invasive procedure, you’ll likely be relieved to hear about ClariVein®. This treatment is even less invasive than other non-surgical methods for dealing with varicose veins and requires no anesthetic.
More About ClariVein®
ClariVein® works to relieve the symptoms of varicose veins by targeting the inner lining of the vein. The alteration of this lining causes the vein to seal off. It then gradually becomes a fibrous tissue that is naturally metabolized by the body.
Rather than utilizing laser or radiofrequency energy as other treatments for varicose veins employ, ClariVein® utilizes what is known as a sclerosant solution to affect the inner lining of the vein. The vein is then sealed in a manner that is both quick and simple.
What to Expect
You’ll be awake for your ClariVein® procedure. Ultrasound will be in use throughout the procedure to ensure precise targeting. The ClariVein® catheter will be administered to the affected vein. The tip of the device rotates as it is inserted into the vein. The sclerosant solution is delivered simultaneously through the catheter of the device down into the vein.
It is the mechanical rotation of the tip and the sclerosant solution that affects the inner lining, sealing off the vein. While it may sound invasive, the procedure itself has not been reported to be uncomfortable.
Benefits of ClariVein®
The ClariVein® method of sealing varicose veins is actually much less uncomfortable than other treatments. Thus, the need for anesthetic to be delivered throughout the affected vein is also less, making the procedure quite safe.
In addition, it doesn’t utilize thermal radiofrequency energy that can damage surrounding nerves. This is yet another reason ClariVein® is one of the safest options when it comes to addressing varicose vein symptoms.
Since it is not invasive and is done as an outpatient procedure, there is little to no downtime.
