Hybrid Procedure CLaCS – Innovative Solution Combining Laser and Sclerotherapy

We proudly present the innovative hybrid procedure called CLaCS (Cryolaser and Cryosclerotherapy) at our aesthetic medicine clinic. This procedure combines the benefits of two effective methods, laser therapy and sclerotherapy, for comprehensive and efficient treatment of dilated blood vessels on the lower limbs.

How does the CLaCS hybrid procedure work?

The CLaCS hybrid procedure utilizes a combination of laser and sclerotherapy techniques. At the beginning of the procedure, laser therapy is used to destroy and remove smaller vessels. Then, with the help of sclerotherapy, other vessels are treated, resulting in their closure and eventual disappearance.

Benefits of the CLaCS hybrid procedure:

  • Effectiveness: The CLaCS hybrid procedure allows for comprehensive treatment of both larger varicose veins and smaller blood vessels.
  • Precision: Laser therapy enables precise destruction of tiny vessels, while sclerotherapy targets larger vessels.
  • Minimal invasiveness: By combining both techniques, the CLaCS hybrid procedure minimizes the need for surgical vein removal, reducing recovery time and minimizing the risk of complications.
