The varicose vein treatments available are:
Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)
EVLA treatment is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local anaesthetic that uses laser heat to collapse the wall of the vein which will then be gradually absorbed by the body. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) which is a non-departmental public body that encourages the best healthcare practices across the country, names EVLA as the Gold Standard for treating varicose veins.
VenaSeal is a quick and painless treatment that is ideal for patients who may have a needle phobia as it only requires a single injection per vein. Performed under local anaesthetic; a small catheter will be guided through the affected veins using ultrasound imaging. Small amounts of medical grade Sapheon Glue is then dispensed via a VenaSeal tool to close the vein. Once the vein is closed the blood is re-routed to healthy veins deeper within the leg and the original varicose vein is gradually absorbed by the body.
Foam sclerotherapy treatment involves injecting the veins with a solution mixed with air which creates the foam. This foamy substance coats the walls of the veins causing inflammation which results in the blood being pushed out and the vein walls becoming sticky. Eventually the veins will start to shrink and be naturally absorbed by the body. Performed under local anaesthetic this treatment can take as little as 30 minutes.
A Phlebectomy procedure is commonly performed on larger varicose veins that are close to the surface of the skin. The procedure requires small incisions being made on the leg to remove the varicose veins via a hook. The treatment is performed under local anaesthetic and the incisions will not requires stitches.
