Non-Thermal Treatments

What is ClariVein®?

ClariVein® is a specialty infusion catheter that disperses a sclerosing agent to the target vein, effectively closing it. After the vein shrinks, blood is rerouted to other, healthy veins.

ClariVein® Procedure

You will be given a relaxing medication and an anti-inflammatory before the procedure. Your leg is sterilized and prepped for the procedure. The specialized catheter is inserted into the vein through a small incision generally below the knee. Once the catheter is in position inside the target vein, the rotating tip of the catheter is turned on and delivery of the sclerosing agent begins. The catheter is pulled through the length of the vein, closing it permanently. Unlike ablation procedures, this treatment does not use heat, therefore avoiding injections of tumescent anesthesia.

ClariVein® is performed in-office and typically takes an hour. After the procedure, prescription compression stockings must be worn for a short time. You are able to resume most normal daily activities immediately. Currently, insurance coverage for this treatment is limited.


What is VenaSeal?

The VenaSeal Closure system uses a proprietary adhesive to close large, problematic varicose veins. Once the vein is closed, blood is automatically routed through healthy veins.

VenaSeal Procedure

You will be given a relaxing medication and an anti-inflammatory before the procedure. Your leg is sterilized and prepped for the procedure. The treatment catheter is inserted into the vein through a small incision generally below the knee. Once the catheter is in position inside the target vein, small amounts of adhesive are distributed as the catheter is pulled through the length of the vein, closing it permanently. Unlike ablation procedures, this treatment does not use heat, therefore avoiding injections of tumescent anesthesia.

VenaSeal is performed in-office and typically takes 1-2 hours. After the procedure, you are able to resume all activities including strenuous exercise. Currently, insurance does not cover this procedure.
