For all the modern day advancements in medical science, you may be surprised by how many people are apprehensive about treating varicose veins. That’s probably because standard treatment up until a decade or so ago involved serious, invasive surgery and long recovery periods. But now, minimally invasive thermal technology has emerged as the alternative standard of care—and the innovations just keep coming.
Clarivein For Endovenous Thermal Ablation
At the San Diego Varicose Vein Treatment Center, we’ve recently introduced ClariVein, a specialty tool used for endovenous thermal ablation that increases the effectiveness of the procedure and facilitates a quick return to work and normal activities.
Nimble & effective
Thermal ablation is already a minimally invasive procedure, and ClariVein manages to reduce the level of invasiveness even more. ClariVein is a thin catheter, several times smaller than other devices used in the procedure, which allows for a smaller entrance point in your skin.
Another departure from existing devices is ClariVein’s unique rotating wire tip. Once placed inside the affected vein, the rotating tip is set in motion to disperse the medicine specified by your doctor, providing 360-degree coverage of the vessel for more effective results. The efficient delivery system also reduces the time such procedures usually take.
Less pain & discomfort
Studies have shown that varicose vein procedures using ClariVein are simpler, faster, and result in up to 74% less pain than other minimally invasive vascular treatments. ClariVein eliminates the need for multiple needle-stick injections for anesthesia, which shortens the procedure time, reduces pain and discomfort, and eliminates post-procedure bruising.
With smaller entrance points and fewer injection areas, the recovery time from varicose vein treatment with ClariVein is much faster. You can even hasten recovery further by using compression stockings and taking daily walks to improve circulation. Other tips for a fast, effective recovery include daily exercise, healthy eating, and the elimination of excess salt from your diet. Once your varicose veins are gone, you won’t have to live in pain anymore, and the days of hiding your legs will be over.
