Veins aren’t just a cosmetic issue; they can cause symptomatic distress too. Understand your vein health and the potential venous conditions you may be experiencing.
Understand what treatments are available for the venous condition you may be experiencing.
Upfront and fixed prices. Find out exactly what you’ll pay before attending. Medical Insurance should fund varicose vein treatment.
We just do veins and are the most experienced clinic in Europe. We strive to provide patients with the best possible service in a friendly environment.
Prices & Payments
Our aim is to be as transparent as possible regarding our prices.
Over 90% of our patients’ treatment plans fall into one of the below examples which outline the total costs involved in diagnosing and treating varicose and thread veins. All our prices are upfront and fixed per leg or per session, we do not have any “from” prices. Our prices include both the consultant and the clinic fee.
There is a lack of transparency with regards to pricing in most private medicine and as such we do not know of any other clinic that published the total cost for a patient’s entire diagnosis and treatment journey.
Prior to looking into the examples, it is useful to explain that if the scan reveals reflux in the veins (caused by faulty valves in the veins) the vast majority of patients require EVLA (Endovenous Laser Ablation). EVLA is the NICE recommended treatment to fix the underlying cause of varicose veins i.e. destroy the veins containing faulty valves which are causing the blood to flow in the wrong direction. Once the underlying cause has been fixed, Foam Sclerotherapy and/ or Avulsions (Phlebectomies) are performed to treat the visible veins you can see on the surface of the legs. We must always treat any underlying cause first as without doing so the visible veins are highly likely to return.
The exact veins requiring treatment will differ from patient to patient and so every treatment plan will be unique. As such the diagnoses described below are in very basic generic terms and do not indicate the specific veins requiring treatment however this does not impact on our prices.
It is important to note that our fixed prices for EVLA are per leg and do not increase depending on the number of veins needing EVLA or the presence of perforators.
We have included the national OPCS treatment codes for each treatment type below the examples to ease comparisons with other clinics. In addition, insurance companies require these treatment codes to confirm the treatment required and authorise accordingly.
Our Standard Patient Pathway outlines more information regarding the 4 Stages of Treatment.
Varicose veins on one leg only? Refer to Examples 1, 2 and 8
Varicose veins on both legs? Refer to Examples 3 – 8
Thread veins or very minor varicose veins only? Refer to Example 8
Example 1: Varicose Veins on one leg only
Patient has visible varicose veins and minimal thread veins on one leg only. Leg throbs and can itch.
Scan reveals faulty valves (reflux) in multiple feeder veins.
EVLA treatment is required to destroy the faulty valves followed by a session of Foam Sclerotherapy and Microsclerotherapy at follow-up to treat the visible veins.
Example 2: Varicose Veins on one leg only (but more extensive than above example)
Patient has visible varicose veins on one leg only. Leg aches, itches and throbs.
Scan reveals faulty valves (reflux) in multiple feeder veins.
EVLA treatment is required to destroy the faulty valves (i.e. fix the underlying problem). Foam Sclerotherapy advised alongside EVLA due to extent of varicose veins. Further Foam Sclerotherapy required at follow-up to treat the visible veins.
Example 3: Varicose Veins on both legs
Patient has visible varicose veins on both legs (worse on one) and a few thread veins. One leg constantly throbs and can itch whereas the other leg causes minimal pain.
Scan reveals faulty valves (reflux) in multiple feeder veins in both legs.
EVLA treatment required to destroy the faulty valves in both legs (i.e. fix the underlying problem) followed by a session of Foam Sclerotherapy on both legs at follow-up to treat the visible veins.
Example 4: Varicose Veins on both legs
Patient has visible varicose veins on both legs (worse on one). The leg left aches and has some minor thread veins. The right leg aches and swells and has extensive thread veins.
EVLA treatment required to destroy the faulty valves in both legs (i.e. fix the underlying problem) followed by a session of Foam Sclerotherapy on both legs at follow-up to treat the visible veins. Due to the extent of visible veins, the patient required a further session of foam sclerotherapy (Stage 4) after their initial follow-up.
*Depending on the extent of your varicose veins you may require more than one session of foam sclerotherapy. If it’s likely you’ll need an additional session the consultant may suggest you have some injections at the same time as EVLA to save you coming back again for them.
Example 5: Varicose Veins on both legs
Patient has substantial visible varicose veins on the right leg with a few thread veins. The right leg aches, itches and throbs. On the left leg there are visible veins but no known symptoms other than cosmetic.
EVLA treatment required to destroy the faulty valves in both legs (i.e. fix the underlying problem). Foam Sclerotherapy was undertaken at the 6-week follow-up appointment. Due to the extent of the visible veins, the patient was highly likely to require more than one session of Foam Sclerotherapy. As such, the consultant undertook sclerotherapy at the same time as the initial EVLA treatment (at a cost of £300) to save the patient returning for a further session after their initial follow-up.
Example 6: Veins on both legs; one worse than the other
Patient has substantial visible varicose veins on the right leg and the leg aches, itches and throbs. On the left leg, there are visible thread veins, potentially varicose but no known symptoms other than cosmetic.
The scan reveals faulty valves (reflux) in veins in the Right leg only. No reflux was found in the left leg.
EVLA required on Right Leg but not on the Left. Left leg treated with Foam Sclerotherapy only. Both legs treated with a combination of foam and microsclerotherapy at follow-up.
Example 7: Veins on both legs; one worse than the other
Patient has multiple visible varicose veins on the right leg and the leg aches, itches and throbs. On the left leg there are visible thread veins, potentially varicose but no known symptoms other than cosmetic.
Scan reveals faulty valves in Right leg only. Left leg no reflux found.
EVLA required on Right Leg but not on the left. Both left and right leg treated with Foam Sclerotherapy at the same time as EVLA. Right leg required Foam alongside EVLA as the veins were extensive.
Example 8: Small Varicose Veins on either one or both legs
Patient had small visible varicose veins on the right leg and on the left leg there were visible thread veins. Patient did not suffer with any known symptoms (other than cosmetic) on either leg.
Scan revealed no faulty valves in feeder veins (i.e. no underlying cause hence EVLA not required).
Treatment required was a combined session of Foam Sclerotherapy and Microsclerotherapy on both legs.

If you have any queries regarding our prices please contact us. As mentioned above we want to be as clear and upfront as possible regarding our pricing even before you have attended for a consultation so there are no nasty surprises at your initial visit or at any point when you come to pay. We do not know of any other clinic which outlines their prices as transparently as we do including the full cost of the consultation, main treatment/s and any follow-ups you may require.
