Varicose veins are abnormally enlarged veins that bulge beneath the skin. They can be flesh coloured, dark purple or blue and are usually found on the backs of the calves or the inside of the leg. Although most people seek treatment for cosmetic reasons, varicose veins can also cause aching, itchiness, a feeling of heaviness in the leg and night cramps.
EVLA – Endovenous Laser Ablation is a newer, minimally invasive varicose vein treatment with a proven 95% success rate when performed correctly. We also offer other treatment options that we can discuss with you at your consultation.
The varicose veins are removed meaning you can go back to wearing shorts and skirts without feeling self conscious. The pain and discomfort usually associated with varicose veins are a thing of the past!
Downtime is minimal. EVLA for varicose veins is a walk-in walk-out laser procedure which does not require a night stay or general anaesthetic. It is performed in less than 1 hour under local anaesthetic, allowing for quicker recovery time than traditional vein surgery (so called vein stripping).
