What Is a ClariVein Procedure?

ClariVein is a new, minimally invasive technique that uses a rotating infusion catheter to disrupt the interior lining of a vein and disperse a chemical sclerosant throughout the vein. By irritating the walls of the vein both mechanically and chemically, ClariVein prompts the closure of malfunctioning blood vessels.

An endovenous procedure, ClariVein does not require extraction of the vein, like phlebectomy does. It treats the vein inside the body, eliminating surgery. Unlike most minimally invasive methods, ClariVein is a non-thermal procedure, so it causes less bruising and discomfort than treatments like laser ablation. 

ClariVein’s tiny, rotating fiber employs dual tactics to resolve varicose veins. As such, it only requires a single injection, causing less pain than treatments that require multiple incisions. This advanced method yields lasting results and takes less than 30 minutes to perform. 

ClariVein is highly effective and virtually painless, making it a preferred option in our California Vein Treatment Center.

What Should Patients Expect with ClariVein?

This gentle procedure begins with your vein doctor numbing a small entry point on your inner leg. Your physician will then use ultrasound guidance to position the catheter’s fiber tip inside your vein, where it will be activated to rotate and inject the sclerosant. In less than 30 minutes, the treatment is complete, and you can walk and resume regular activities right away. With our skilled vein experts, ClariVein is a remarkably effective vein treatment in California. 

What Side Effects Are Possible with ClariVein?

When you choose our qualified vein treatment center in California, side effects are largely avoidable. 

Possible Side Effects of ClariVein:

  • Common: Some patients experience a tingly or a numb sensation in the calf or thigh. For most, this is a temporary feeling that’s resolved with medication if needed. 
  • Rare: A very small number of patients develop darkened skin at the treatment site, which is reversed with skin cream.
