We are one of the UK's most recognised Varicose Veins treatment centres
With over 30 years' experience in offering the most advanced and effective minimally invasive laser treatments for all types of veins, we are one of the UK's most recognised, specialist varicose vein clinics with nationwide locations in London, Weybridge, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow.
Our consultant vascular surgeons were amongst the first and very few in the UK to pioneer the EVLA (Endovenous Laser Ablation) method, now considered the NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) Gold Standard for treatment of Varicose Veins. Vein stripping, currently the most widely available method, is not recommended by NICE, who have called for its use to be stopped due to its painful nature, risk of scarring, and lengthy recovery time.
As well as EVLA (also known as EVLT) treatment, we offer Sclerotherapy (liquid and foam) and Phlebectomy for those who have less severe varicose veins. Our treatment focuses on the underlying cause of your veins and we provide free ultrasound scans to all patients in our surgeon-led consultations to ensure we do just that. Our Consultant Vascular Surgeons have helped thousands of people regain their confidence whilst avoiding the health issues associated with varicose veins and, owing to their success, our vein treatments have been featured on both Channel 4's Embarrassing Bodies and TLC's My Naked Secret.
“Six months and three treatments later, my veins are transformed. I am taking my new legs to Ibiza, where they can embrace miniskirts on a daily basis.”
Jessica Lacey, Beauty Features Editor, Marie Claire -Sclerotherapy with Mr. Constantinous Kyriakides.

What is EVLA?
EVLA is a minimally-invasive method of permanently destroying varicose veins. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and yields speedier recovery times, as well as better success rates, than traditional vein stripping. The treatment locates the damaged vein with ultrasound, before using radiofrequency energy to collapse the wall of the vein and destroy the cause of the problem.
EVLA is considered the Gold Standard of treatment for varicose veins by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE), a non-departmental public body whose aim is to encourage the best healthcare practices across the country. The most recent NICE guidelines outlined that, despite the fact that 50% of varicose veins are still surgically stripped, Laser Thermal Ablation was a far more effective and safe method, and stripping should no longer be considered except in exceptional circumstances.
Our EVLA treatment is:
- a competitively priced, walk-in walk-out procedure
- performed by some of the Country's top Consultant Vascular Surgeons
- carried out under local anaesthetic in one of our widely recognised in-house clinical facilities
- completed in under 1 hour, which means you can head home shortly after
- aimed at tackling the actual cause of the problem, which is why we offer all patients a free ultrasound scan
Our surgeons have performed amongst the highest number of EVLA treatments in the UK, and have helped develop the procedure into the safe and highly recommended method it is today.
Here's what one patient had to say about her treatment:
“I began to hate my legs as my varicose veins became progressively worse, all knobbly and unsightly. I stopped wearing skirts. I didn’t want to look at them myself, let alone have anyone else see them. Three days after the EVLA procedure with Mr. Kyriakides, the bandages came off and I was so relieved to see only some bruising and that those horrible gnarled veins had gone. I can now wear what I want and I am actually quite proud of my legs.” - Sarah, London
