What Is ClariVein?

ClariVein is a clinically proven and minimally invasive treatment for reducing symptoms of venous insufficiency. It is FDA-approved and non-thermal, meaning no laser is used, and there won't be any scarring. The treatment is completed in less than an hour in our office, similar to other endovenous procedures. ClariVein is an alternative treatment that can complement commonly used procedures like radiofrequency ablation and sclerotherapy. Your vein specialist will assess your current anatomy and previous treatments to determine the best course of action for your specific needs.

How Is ClariVein Unique?

Unlike EVLT and sclerotherapy, which use a single method to close a damaged vein, ClariVein employs two modes of action to treat both the damaged vein and its underlying cause.


The ClariVein®IC is a specialty infusion catheter that features a rotating wire tip. Its design allows for the precise and controlled 360-degree dispersion of physician-specified agents to the targeted treatment area.

What Happens During a ClariVein Procedure?

The ClariVein procedure involves treating affected veins internally through a small incision typically made on the upper thigh area. Your vein specialist will insert a medical catheter with a rotating fiber into the vein.

After the device reaches the damaged vein, the fiber will initiate rotation, which will remove the lining of the affected vein while also delivering a medical solution to address the underlying cause. 

The catheter will rotate for several minutes, and patients may feel a light humming sensation near the affected area. However, it should not cause any significant pain or discomfort.

Is ClariVein Painful?

Like other treatments we offer at Vein Specialist Centers, this procedure is performed with local sedatives in an office-based setting in one of our vein treatment centers. The session can be completed in as little as 30 minutes, and there is very little chance of scarring or bruising since no major incision is made and surrounding tissue is not damaged. After a ClariVein treatment, patients can return to their normal activities almost immediately.
