DO THE VEINS THAT HAVE BEEN TREATED STAY AWAY FOR GOOD? HOW LONG CAN I EXPECT VEIN FREE LEGS FOR? OR DO NEW ONES APPEAR ELSEWHERE?

We would need to perform a duplex ultrasound scan of your legs to determine exactly what treatment would be suitable. If you have faulty valves causing your varicose veins then it's likely the most suitable treatment for you would be EVLA (laser treatment). 

After properly performed EVLA it is uncommon to get new varicose veins appearing but it can happen. We see 3% of our patients with some degree of recurrent varicose veins after EVLA. Often this can be managed without further EVLA treatment but just with foam sclerotherapy.

It is common after traditional surgery for veins to 'grow back' but fortunately very rare after properly performed EVLA which has targeted all sources for the veins.
