Your venous insufficiency is unique. Sure, you may be experiencing some common symptoms of varicose veins, but each vein in your leg will respond to treatment differently. There are multiple procedures available to address the unique components of your leg veins with a goal to provide the most comprehensive care possible.
The Center for Advanced Vein Therapy provides multiple treatment options tailored for the individual concerns you are experiencing.
What is ClariVein?
Clarivein aims to provide one of the most minimally invasive techniques for closing varicose veins. The procedure consists of a catheter that, with ultrasound guidance, is inserted into a diseased vein. Once positioned correctly, the catheter begins to rotate, which prompts the vein to spasm. Additionally, a sclerosing agent is administered that helps seal the walls of the vein.
Why is ClariVein Different?
The procedure is non-thermal and non-tumescent. ClariVein requires only one injection site for vein closure. While other methods of treatment may involve the injection of specific agents at multiple points along the vein, ClariVein reduces the amount of trauma in the treatment area and makes your procedure more comfortable. ClariVein also involves no local anesthesia and will cause only mild discomfort during the treatment process.
It’s possible for ClariVein to treat superficial leg veins below the knee whereas other treatment measures may risk potential nerve damage.
What Happens During Treatment?
Due to the individual nature of your leg veins, it is essential to have a consultation and venous ultrasound. Dr. Allen will talk to you about the symptoms you are experiencing and take a closer look at the leg veins that are causing the problems.
With the use of ultrasound technology, Dr. Allen can examine your leg veins below the skin’s surface and receive detailed imagery of the way blood is moving through your veins. WIth this information, he can diagnose your condition and determine the best method of treatment.
ClariVein is best suited for varicose veins that meet specific size requirements. With an ultrasound, Dr. Allen can see exactly where the catheter is located in the veins, as it shows brightly on the monitor. This precision ensures that your varicose veins are eliminated in the least amount of procedures possible.
The combination of the fast rotation with a chemical agent creates an effective technique that permanently closes your varicose veins. Each rotation penetrates every surface of the vein wall for maximum results To assure the full closure of your leg veins, Dr. Allen will administer the sclerosing agent as he slowly withdraws the catheter from you vein
When Will You See Results?
ClariVein produces near-immediate results and allows you to return your regular routine that same day. Although it will take some time before the closed vein vanishes, blood will reroute to healthier veins, lessening venous insufficiency.
To expedite your treatment, Dr. Allen will prescribe support garments if you do not have them. Wearing compression stockings for five to seven days after the procedure will assist your body to stabilize the closure.
Like many leg vein procedures, ClariVein will actively work to close diseased veins, but it will not keep new veins from surfacing.
