With the help of the ClariVein method, the varicose veins in the lower limbs close off. It is an outpatient procedure with very good aesthetic results. After the treatment, no swelling, pigmentation changes or bruising occurs. Patients are not limited in any way and can do sports or carry out their daily tasks. The new ClariVein method treats varicose veins in a gentle way. There is no need to burn the tissue with catheters or laser, no nerves are damaged and the outer and inner layers of the skin are left undamaged as well.
How does the treatment work?
Using ultrasound, a thin cannula is inserted into the treated varicose vein and through it, a thin ClariVein catheter is applied. It was developed with the goal of being minimally-invasive in treating lower limbs (small and large saphenous veins) and venous junctions. The tip of the catheter rotates very quickly resulting in the contraction of the veins. At the same time, the tip also injects a sclerotizing solution. The rotating motion further helps distribute the solution equally along the inner walls of the vein. This results in the closure of the vein in its entire length. The benefit of this method is the zero chance of damage being done to the nerves of the veins, skin as well as subcutaneous tissue. The procedure does not cause pain when for example compared to alternative methods which use radiofrequency catheters or lasers.
