At Windward Vein, we make sure to bring our patients into a welcoming and relaxing environment. Our patient care is the best on the island and we are dedicated to discussing all of our treatment options with you, in detail, so that you are knowledgeable about all procedures, risks, benefits and anything related.
We offer a full consultation for treatment of your varicose and spider vein conditions, offering diagnoses with proper treatment suggestions to ensure your treatment success. Each treatment is delicately administered with the care of our expertly trained medical staff, under the care and supervision of Dr. Sonny Wong. ClariVein is one of our latest state-of-the-art treatments that we perform directly within our clinic. We prefer this treatment as the least invasive and most comfortable treatment, with the highest rate of success.
ClariVein is a form of endovenous therapy that introduces a small device (a very thin flexible spinning wire) into the vein itself to close off stubborn varicose and spider veins. The tiny hollow wire performs two functions, the first is to disturb the inside lining of the vein and the second is to deliver a sclerosant solution to the walls of the vein. During the treatment, the physician will use ultrasound to guide ClariVein into the vein; the vein cannot be entered into blind. Since the treatment requires no cutting or incisions, ultrasound allows the physician to see into the vein at the affected area as if they were inside of the vein surgically.
ClariVein is unlike endovenous laser treatment, which uses heat to kill off the vein. Since there is no heat involved in ClariVein treatment, there is no need for any tumescent anesthesia and none of the risk associated with heat therapies. Aside from the initial injections of numbing, for the entry location of the small needle to insert the wire, treatment is not painful. This topical solution ensures no pain during the surgery but is dependent upon preference.
Compression hose should be worn for two weeks after the treatment. Little to no discomfort is expected after the procedure. Normal activities can be resumed in two days following.
This is a quick treatment option for those looking to avoid long recovery and hospital check-in’s. We see many successful results with the use of ClariVein therapy and recommend it to many of our patients. If you feel that you would benefit from this minimally invasive ClariVein treatment, call Windward Vein to setup your free consultation.
