CLARIVEIN VS RFA
Varicose veins are swollen, enlarged veins. They happen most often in the legs. Varicose veins can develop when valves in your veins become damaged. This causes problems with blood flow. Over time, too much blood collects in your veins. The veins may bulge, twist, and stand out under your skin. They can also cause symptoms such as aching, cramping, or swelling in your legs.
The Clarivein Procedure:
The Clarivein procedure is one of the latest minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of varicose veins. This technique is even less invasive than the laser and other closure techniques requiring much less local anaesthetic.
Most all the minimally invasive techniques work by destroying the intima or the “inner coat” of the vein. When the intima is destroyed, the vein seals off and turns into tissue which is then dissolved by the body.
The laser technique uses laser energy to destroy the intima while radiofrequency ablation also known as (RFA) uses radiofrequency energy.
ClariVein uses a combination of mechanical disruption in the inner coat of the vein and chemical injury using sclerosant solution. The combination of these two methods is a very efficient and painless way of sealing the vein.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA):
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a procedure to treat varicose veins. It uses heat created from radiofrequency (RF).
During (RFA) treatment radiofrequency heat is sent into your vein through a thin, flexible tube (catheter). This closes off blood flow in the main problem vein.
Both the clarivein and radiofrequency ablation are very great choices and alternatives to painful vein stripping and surgeries. Here at Alpha Vein Clinic in Las Vegas Nevada we have them both available and may be covered by your insurance.
