Treatments

All of our treatments are minimally invasive, meaning that there is no general anaesthetic and no surgery needed, and therefore no time off work required.

Treatments Information

Treatment Pathway

Our treatment pathway on how to diagnose and treat all types of leg veins, which we adopted when we started in 2003, is now firmly established and recognised by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

Consultation

A veins consultation includes a Colour Duplex Ultrasound Scan, which is necessary to determine if you have an underlying cause of your vein problems. We will explain the results of the scan to you there and then, along with a tailored treatment plan that will be based on your preferences and desired outcome.

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)

EVLA is used to treat the underlying cause of visible varicosities and the associated symptoms (pain, aching, etc.). It is the gold-standard treatment for varicose veins, as recommended by NICE (the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence). Under ultrasound guidance, a laser fibre is inserted into the vein that needs destroying. Heat is then delivered into the vein, and the fibre is slowly pulled along the vein, destroying it in situ. The remnants of the treated vein are then slowly absorbed by your body.

Foam Sclerotherapy

Foam sclerotherapy is most commonly used as a secondary treatment to EVLA. For patients with smaller varicosities, sclerotherapy may be the only treatment required.

The foam sclerotherapy solution contains a drug that is injected directly into the veins. The foam displaces the blood in the veins, and the drug then destroys the lining of the vein wall. The veins shrivel up, and your body naturally breaks down and absorbs the dead tissue.
