If you’re one of the 35% of adults who have varicose veins, chances are you want them removed to improve your appearance. But there’s also an essential medical reason to treat varicose veins, as they can lead to pain, swelling, and other complications. As a vein specialist, David Rosen, MD, at Rosen Vein Care in Chicago, Illinois, offers several varicose vein treatment options that produce exceptional results and permanently eliminate your unsightly veins.

I strive for excellence; to improve upon the care I offer my patients each day. To search out new treatments and techniques that may offer great results with less discomfort. Clarivein® seems to do just that.

ClariVein® is a minimally-invasive treatment for venous insufficiency: the underlying issue that leads, in many cases, to chronic leg discomfort and varicose veins. With the assistance of ultrasound guidance, a special rotating device is used to inject a chemical solution that leads to closure of malfunctioning superficial veins. This is truly state-of-the-art vein care.

Unlike endovenous laser ablation (EVLA, EVLT®) or radiofrequency ablation, no heat is required for vein closure. No heat means that virtually no anesthesia is required and the procedure remains essentially pain-free! The results are pretty comparable to the other, older procedures without the discomfort associated with the placement of tumescent local anesthesia. Patients on whom I’ve performed the procedure all say the same thing: you feel that something is happening, but it’s not painful. Though I reserve 90 minutes for each procedure, the actual closure time is only a few minutes.

So…why all that extra time? Welcome to Rosen Vein Care: I care about every patient’s experience. There is no rushing through things. I care deeply about making sure that I have explained things to my patients and answered every question before doing any procedure. This isn’t “assembly line medicine”. This is what patient care is supposed to be for all of us…and THAT is my guiding principle….my medical “golden rule”, if you will: Treat unto others as I would want to be treated. I do everything I can to make Rosen Vein Care the best place for varicose vein treatments and spider vein treatments in Chicago and its suburbs!

Once the Clarivein® procedure is over, some gauze and tape are placed on the leg. Compression stockings are also placed and are worn daily for a few weeks. There are few activity restrictions. In fact, I encourage patients to be more active…to walk…get out there and enjoy all of the beautiful things to see around Chicago and the suburbs!

The best way for you to find out if Clarivein® is right for you is to schedule a consultation with me by calling 847-272-8346. I look forward to meeting you and striving to help your legs to feel and look more excellent than they have in years!
