What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are prominent bulging veins blue or purple in colour that tend to appear around the legs or ankles. Varicose veins appear when the small valves of the veins get damaged and stop working affecting the correct blood flow in the veins. Since the blood flow is restricted, it causes the veins to swell up and bulge out. Varicose veins can sometimes lead to other symptoms such as itchiness, burning sensation or cramping in the surrounding areas. Even though, you may not be experiencing these symptoms varicose veins are often a sign of underlying vascular problems so it is highly recommended to get them checked out by a consultant vascular surgeon.
What are the best treatments for Varicose Veins in London?
There are a variety of varicose vein treatments available. At our London Veins Clinic, we offer the latest minimally-invasive varicose vein removal procedures, suitable for almost every patient suffering from Varicose Veins.
- EVLA – Endovenous Laser Ablation is the most popular varicose vein removal procedure. This is a minimally invasive procedure with a speedy recovery time performed under local anaesthetic. EVLA uses ultrasound technology to target the problematic veins to then remove them. EVLA is a highly effective procedure with a 95.4% success rate and has achieved the “gold standard” for vein removal according to NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence).
- Sclerotherapy –This minimally invasive procedure consists of injecting liquid Sclerotherapy to the treatment areas. This solution causes the vein walls to collapse destroying the veins which are then naturally absorbed by the body overtime. This treatment is ideal for varicose veins that are slightly smaller.
- VenaSeal – is a varicose vein removal treatment that uses medical adhesive to close varicose veins. The procedure consists of inserting a small catheter into the treatment leg, which guided by an ultrasound will dispense small doses of medical grade Sapheon Glue to close the veins. The veins are then absorbed naturally by the body.
- Phlebectomy – This procedure consists of making small entry points around the affected areas to insert a hook that will gently remove the veins.
