ClariVein® is a unique combination treatment for getting rid of varicose veins which cleverly carries out a mechanical action to destroy problem veins as well as delivering a chemical for added efficacy.
There is no other treatment that combines a physical action with a chemical action in one quick process.
The mechanical action of Clarivein® by a combination of a rotating wire, which scratches the vein wall and at the same time a chemical sclerosant is injected. This combination works better than sclerosants alone. All of this is carried out through just one tiny skin puncture and is painless.
After the varicose vein has been destroyed, the blood is rerouted through normally functioning veins.
So how does ClariVein® compare to other varicose vein treatment methods?
ClariVein® compared to vein stripping
Many people think of traditional ‘vein stripping’ as being the main way of getting rid of varicose veins.
Vein stripping is a physical action which involves extracting problem veins from the leg through incisions in the groin and calf. It is an aggressive procedure which is normally carried out in hospital under general anaesthetic. In addition to recovery from the general anaesthetic, bruising and pain can be a problem.
By comparison, ClariVein® is a much simpler procedure. It does not require general anaesthetic or a hospital stay.
It is safe, effective and carried out as a day case in our London clinic. The procedure involves minimal discomfort and patients can return straight to normal activities and don’t even need to expect much bruising as the treatment is not invasive.
What’s more, ClariVein® has higher success rates too.
ClariVein® compared to radiofrequency
Tadiofrequency treatments involve heating the vein from within to damage it and shut it down. This can be uncomfortable and may involve multiple injections too.
By comparison, ClariVein® uses just one entry point for a thin catheter.
The procedure does not apply heat to the vein, but instead uses its unique combination of a rotating tip to damage the inside of the vein while delivering a sclerosant chemical which irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot.
