Varicose veins are large swollen and enlarged veins that are most commonly found on the legs, feet or thighs. They are often lumpy or bulging veins and can be blue or purple in colour. Symptoms of varicose veins can include swollen feet, heavy or uncomfortable legs and general aching in the area. They caused by when the walls of the vein become stretched and lose their elasticity properties. This causes the valves within your veins to weaken and stop functioning properly causing blood to flow backwards and collect within the vein. Luckily there are a wide variety of treatments out there to help treat varicose veins and relieve the symptoms associated with them too.

How can we treat Varicose Veins in Manchester?
EVLA treatment for Varicose Veins
Endovenous Ablation of Varicose Veins (EVLA) is the NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) Gold Standard for treatment of Varicose Veins. Performed under local anaesthetic, the treatment uses laser heat to collapse the wall of the vein and destroy the cause of the problem.
Phlebectomy treatment for Varicose Veins
Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using a small scalpel or needle to remove varicose veins that are sitting just beneath the surface of the leg. It is ideal for bulging veins as they are then removed from the body entirely and all symptoms of them are often relieved instantly.
Sclerotherapy treatment for Varicose Veins
Sclerotherapy is commonly associated with thread veins but it is also a great treatment for smaller varicose veins. There are two types of sclerotherapy, liquid sclerotherapy which is usually reserved for thread veins and foam sclerotherapy which is best for larger varicose veins. The treatment works by injecting the liquid of foam into the varicose vein coating the vein wall. The inflammation that occurs in the vein then pushes the blood out of the area and the sticky substance on the walls then bonds together to eventually close off the vein.
VenaSeal treatment for Varicose Veins
VenaSeal uses medical adhesive to close off troublesome varicose veins. It is often a preferred treatment for those who are not keen on needles as the treatment only requires a single injection per vein. There is no need for tumescent anaesthesia or nerve blocks during a venaseal procedure and in the majority of cases you will not need to wear compression garments post-surgery either meaning you will be able to get back to your daily activities a lot sooner.

“Excellent service and treatment I attended the Manchester clinic for the EVLA varicose vein treatment with Mr Inglot. I had a large amount of unsightly veins which caused me discomfort. I was supported throughout the procedure by the clinic staff and Mr Inglot. Although I had a large amount of veins treated my recovery was swift and simpler than I expected and I am delighted with the result. “
“Fantastic experience visited The Private Clinic Manchester recently for EVLA treatment. What a dream to work with caring happy staff and certainly made my experience more relaxed. Very professional care from start to finish. I am so pleased with my outcome and after 2 weeks I feel far more confident and able to wear short skirts for the first time in many years. Massive thankyou .. :)”
