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.
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.
"I can't say enough good things about Jilanne Rose and her staff! Deciding to have a vein scan wasn't easy for me, but from the very moment they called me to set up my appointment, they made me feel at ease. Ms. Rose was warm, knowledgeable, and did NOT rush me through our appointment. She had lots of suggestions, and really made me feel like she was genuinely concerned about me - not just numbers or getting me in for procedures.
Love this place and am very thankful that I reached out to them!"
