All of our varicose vein treatments available at our clinic in Leeds are performed under local anaesthetic and you will be able to return home shortly after the procedure to recover.
EVLA is considered the Gold Standard in Varicose vein treatment by National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE). The treatment uses ultrasound to locate the veins and then laser heat is targeted into the vein causing the vein to collapse. The vein will then be gradually absorbed by the body over time.
VenaSeal is a great procedure for patients who experience needle phobia as it does only require one small injection per vein. Using a small catheter, the surgeon will guide the VenaSeal tool through the leg dispensing small amounts of medical grade Sapheon glue which then closes the vein. Once the vein is closed, it will then be absorbed by the body. VenaSeal has a quick recovery time and many patients do not need to wear compression stockings following treatment.
Phlebectomy is a very effective procedure for removing large varicose veins that are sitting close to the surface of the skin. Small incisions will be made and the vein will then be removed. The procedure does not require stitches and the results are instant as the vein has been removed, however bruising and swelling is still to be expected and patients will be required to wear compression stockings.
Foam Sclerotherapy is used to treat varicose veins. It is similar to liquid sclerotherapy which is more commonly used to treat thread veins but this solution is slightly different. The foam is injected into the vein causing inflammation before the vein then closes up over time. We also offer liquid sclerotherapy to treat thread veins in clinic.
Thread Veins can also be effectively treated at our clinic in Leeds. We offer liquid sclerotherapy treatment which involves injection a sclerosing agent along the vein which causes the vein walls to become sticky and blood is no longer able to pass through. When no blood is passing through the vein, the capillaries will start collapse and be absorbed by the body therefore gradually disappearing from view.
We are also able to treat facial thread veins with our effective ND Yag laser that can be used to treat individual veins on the face or legs. Pulses of light energy are emitted over the skin which causes the blood in the thread veins to coagulate resulting in the vessel closing. Once closed, the thread vein will then be re-absorbed by the body and blood is redirected to deeper veins where it will no longer be visable.

“I wasn’t looking forward to EVLA and Phlebectomy treatments but the staff were friendly and reassuring. Mr Hussain inspired confidence and the theatre nurses, Helen and Leigh were great. I would recommend this clinic and would return without hesitation for other treatments.”
