What is ClariVein?

How is ClariVein done?

ClariVein is an in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia. The vein doctor makes a small incision on the leg, which serves as an entry point for the specialized catheter. The catheter is driven through the incision and into the diseased vein under ultrasound guidance. Once it’s lodged in place, the catheter is activated to damage the diseased vein and deliver sclerosant medication, turning the tortuous veins into hardened tissues absorbed by the body. You can resume your daily activities immediately after ClariVein treatment.

What is the ClariVein device?

The ClariVein device is a small, tube-like catheter with a specialized rotating tip, capable of damaging the diseased vein’s walls while delivering sclerosant medicine to seal it shut.

ClariVein for the
hands, feet, and face

ClariVein is a suitable minimally invasive treatment for large, tortuous varicose veins. But it’s not suitable for the treatment of vein problems on the hand, feet, and face because these regions have dense arterial connections. As such, vein doctors can’t risk the remote possibility of injecting sclerosant medicine into the arteries.
