Your Vein Treatment Options
We provide four different minimally invasive, ‘walk-in-walk-out’ options for varicose vein treatment: EVLA, Sclerotherapy, Phlebectomy and VenaSeal, which we explain in more detail (below). All treatments use local anaesthetic, take up to one hour to complete do not involve large surgical incisions. We are able to recommend and use the best procedure for your individual needs, having a broad spectrum of treatments, and we also tailor our treatments to you.
Your Consultant Vascular Surgeon will advise the most suitable technique, or combination of techniques, in your case, from the below treatments, after detailed assessment including an ultrasound scan:
- EVLA (Endovenous Laser Ablation): Ultrasound technology is used to pinpoint the damaged vein, before laser heat is used to break down the veins wall and destroy the varicose veins from the inside
- Sclerotherapy: A chemical, known as a ‘sclerosing agent’ is injected into the varicose vein, to destroy its internal lining, causing it to close and eventually shrink and disappear
- Phlebectomy: In Phlebectomy treatment, very small incisions are made, through which a hook is inserted, and hooked onto an area of the affected vein. The vein is subsequently removed and with incisions being so miniscule that no stitches are required
- VenaSeal: Known as the “superglue” treatment, VenaSeal is a closure system, in which safe medical adhesive is injected into the affected vein in order to seal it. Once the vein is sealed, the blood is re-routed to nearby healthy veins and the original varicose vein is absorbed by your body
Seeking Thread Vein Treatment instead?
Our Glasgow Clinic also offers options for thread vein treatment, the best treatment for you being dependent on your case. These include Sclerothapy and Cutera CoolGlide. Although sclerotherapy can be used to treat varicose veins, it is also largely recommended for thread veins. To treat thread veins, the veins or capillaries affected are injected with a scelorising agent (as used in varicose vein treatment), causing the vein walls to become sticky, and meaning blood cannot pass through. Without blood moving through the vein, the capillaries collapse and are absorbed by the body, while disappearing gradually from view. In the Cutera CoolGuide treatment, pulses of light energy are directed at the veins, leading the blood inside the veins to coagulate and reroute to deeper veins. The affected thread vein is eventually absorbed by the body.

“Fantastic Couldn’t recommend the Glasgow Clinic , surgeons and staff highly enough. I went to them after years of looking for somewhere to deal with my varicose vein problem , and I couldn’t have wish for better. I was made to feel at ease , safe and was confident that after the consultation I would be pain free. I have a terrible phobia of needles so the non invasive procedure was prefect. Honestly fantastic from start to finish.” Justin, Varicose Vein Treatment Patient
