Book a Consultation

I HAVE HAD VARICOSE VEINS SINCE I WAS IN MY 20'S. THE LAST FEW YEARS (I AM 52 AND VERY SPORTY-PLAY FOOTBALL; RUN ETC). I HAVE INCREASING ITCHINESS ON MY LOWER LIMBS AND LAST YEAR IN THE HOT WEATHER DEVELOPED AN ULCER ON MY CALF WHICH TOOK WEEKS TO HEAL. IF I HAVE THE TREATMENT, WILL IT RESOLVE THE ITCHING AS I AM NOT TOO BOTHERED BY THE COSMETIC ASPECT BUT I AM NOW HAVING TO WEAR COMPRESSION SOCKS AND USE STEROID CREAM WHICH IS A PAIN AND THE ITCH AT TIMES DRIVES ME TO DISTRACTION.

The treatment will resolve any itching you are experiencing as EVLA destroys the underlying cause of the varicose veins and prevents any further skin changes coming from the same source.

A duplex ultrasound scan would need to be undertaken to determine the exact cause of your varicose veins and what treatment would be required.
