ClariVein® Varicose Vein Treatment
The ClariVein® procedure is a minimally invasive varicose vein treatment used to dispense medication in the diseased great saphenous veins, small saphenous veins or accessory veins. This procedure includes a specialty catheter that infuses a specific vein closure medication directly in the vein, without the need for painful anesthesia. The medication causes the varicose vein to collapse, instead of using radiofrequency or laser energy to accomplish the closure. Once the vein closes, it will undergo a process of hardening (referred to as Sclerosis), blood is immediately re-routed through other healthy leg veins and the affected varicose vein will be gradually absorbed by the body.
What Are The Advantages ClariVein®?
- Minimally Invasive
- Minimal Discomfort
- Quick Procedure Time
- Fast Return to Normal Activities
- Performed in an Office Setting
This in-office varicose vein procedure is extremely safe and minimally invasive. Like VenaSeal™, ClariVein® eliminates the need for multiple injections of a local anesthetic (tumescent anesthesia) and is considered as effective as Endovenous Laser Ablation but does not involve the use of heat. For these reasons and like VenaSeal, ClariVein® is one of the most “pain free” venous treatments available to date. A small amount of anesthetic at the entry point is all that is required. Beyond that, patients will not feel any pain or discomfort.
Insurance coverage varies by different commercial insurance companies. As the insurance companies update varicose vein treatment billing codes, approvals and procedures, this is expected to change.

The medicine is delivered through the unique rotating tip of the catheter allowing for 360-degree coverage of the vessel. The procedure typically takes very little time and creates minimal discomfort.
