The Real Value of Varicose Vein Treatment

Your varicose veins are unlikely to provide you with much joy. They can be uncomfortable, painful and unsightly, with symptoms that can get worse over time. Dr Mark Bratby, Medical Director at Veincentre, highlights the value of varicose vein treatment.

It’s natural that you’re thinking about having some treatment and will therefore need to consider varicose vein removal cost. But while value for money is of course very important, the true value you’ll get from treatment centres around how you can improve your health. 


Reduce pain and discomfort

Varicose veins are irritating, both physically and mentally. They cause swelling, itchiness, pain, discomfort and that awful restless feeling where you can’t shake the aching in your legs. The physical symptoms often lead to emotional suffering, as the restlessness can feel tortuous when you’re trying to relax. 

These symptoms will quickly resolve when you have a varicose vein treatment such as Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA). Most of our patients tell us their symptoms have completely disappeared by the time of their follow-up appointment six to eight weeks after treatment. 


Improve appearance

Part of the relief you’ll get from your symptoms following treatment is that your bulging, twisty veins will disappear. You may find these unsightly veins incredibly distressing, potentially to the extent that you hate to wear shorts or skirts in warmer weather. It’s very common to feel self-conscious when you have varicose veins, and this can be as difficult to deal with as the physical discomfort. 

The feeling of relief can be a revelation when you treat your varicose veins. The confidence boost you’ll receive may be one of the best parts of your treatment, allowing you to feel like you can wear what you want, when you want.



Improve circulation

Varicose veins can be detrimental to your circulatory system. This is because the tiny valves inside your veins that control the flow of blood back to your heart don’t work properly, causing blood to accumulate. This is what leads to the swelling and bulging, which is more noticeable after exercise due to the increased blood flow. 

Poor circulation can lead to a number of other health problems, including ulcers and blood clots. Treating your varicose veins will improve your circulation and promote healthier blood flow throughout your body. 


Lower risk of complications

Varicose veins can lead to serious issues if left untreated, including skin damage in the form of venous ulcers. As symptoms will only get worse over time, you can avoid the risk of further complications by treating your varicose veins sooner rather than later. 

Our varicose vein treatments are low risk and come with few side effects. Most patients typically describe the sensation during treatment as uncomfortable rather than painful. If there is any pain, it’s likely to be short-lived and certainly preferable to potential issues such as skin changes or inflammation of veins, known as phlebitis. 


Enhance quality of life

All of the things above will improve your quality of life. Whether it’s avoiding future health problems, boosting your confidence or enjoying relief from pain and aching, you’re likely to find that the benefits of treatment far outweigh the cost of varicose vein removal.
