The summer is coming. It is slowly time for airy clothing again. If you suffer from varicose veins, the Clarivein treatment can be a solution to get rid of large varicose veins in a quick and less painful way.
They can help you at our Jan van Goyen Aesthetic Center. “The Clarivein treatment is quite simple,” says Dr. Van Vlijmen, varicose vein surgeon at the Medical and Aesthetic Center Jan van Goyen. Her expertise lies in the endovenous (in the vein) treatment of varicose veins. “An operation is no longer necessary, because we disable the varicose vein from the inside. Patients receive an antithrombotic injection prior to treatment. Then we insert a thin wire into the varicose vein. The end of this wire has a small metal ball. We connect this to an electric handle that provides a rotating movement. This movement damages the inside of the vein. To enhance this process, we simultaneously inject an irritating substance into the vein. As a result, the vein shrinks and disappears over time.”
There are many other benefits to the ClariVein treatment. “No additional anesthetic shots are needed. We can do it on an outpatient basis, patients don't have to lie down for long – a treatment only takes 20 minutes per leg – and you can resume normal activities the next day. After that, patients only have to wear an elastic stocking during the day for two weeks. Research shows that the first results are promising. The varicose veins are closed after 6 months in almost all patients we treat.”
