Varicose Vein Treatments

Discover our minimally invasive treatment options

Ideal for larger veins close to the surface of the skin, a phlebectomy is a minor surgical procedure where varicose veins are removed using small incisions.
EVLA is the most advanced treatment for varicose veins and boasts an almost 100% success rate. It uses laser energy and ultrasound to seal your veins from the inside, encouraging them to shrink as your body heals.
Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy supports the targeted treatment of the entire unwanted vein, not just the section visible through your skin. This approach allows the root cause of varicose veins to be targeted.
Vein glue sees medical “superglue” and ultrasound used to seal off damaged and abnormal veins. Cyanoacrylate is safe, causes minimal discomfort and results in little downtime.
Especially effective for spider veins, sclerotherapy sees a solution injected directly into affected veins which then harden and are absorbed by the body. Tiny needles are used to minimise scarring of the treatment area.
There is a myth that varicose veins conditions only affect women. Nothing further from the truth! Did you know that about 20 to 30% of men suffer from varicose veins?

Varicose veins can be caused by a number of factors:

  • Genetics – vein disease often runs in families. There is a high chance if your parents suffered from varicose veins you will develop the condition.
  • Hormonal changes – such as a rise in progesterone can impact on your body causing valve changes in your veins. This is why women often develop varicose veins during pregnancy.
  • Ageing – as we age our veins age with us. Over time the valves and walls weaken and varicose veins are more likely to develop after the age of 40.
  • Your occupation – jobs that involve sitting or standing all day can increase pressure in the legs which can lead to varicose veins.
  • Weight – being overweight or obese is a risk factor for developing varicose veins. Increased body weight can compress the veins, which increases the pressure and strains the walls and valves.
  • Trauma – significant impact to the legs can damage veins causing varicose veins.

Varicose veins are commonly found on the legs but you can get them on other parts of the body including arms and groin area.

Pregnancy often exacerbates current varicose veins or can be the cause of new varicose veins. You can not undergo treatment when you are pregnant, however there are things you can do to help you manage the condition such as wearing medical grade compression stockings (fitted by a professional). This video explains all about varicose veins during pregnancy and recommends the best time to have your treatment.
