We will also be able to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.

Our doctors will then determine suitable treatment choices for you. All are laser,  walk-in and walk-out treatments if needed.

A follow up scan will be necessary to make sure that your treatment is effective 1-2 weeks after your procedure.

Varicose Vein Treatments That We Offer

Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is an excellent treatment for varicose veins and, like other treatments, focuses on sealing the diseased veins shut so that they are reabsorbed by the body and disappear from view. Ultrasound allows the doctor to visualise all the veins under the skin that need treatment, and to precisely guide a tiny catheter into the varicose vein. Then, a special foaming substance known as a sclerosing agent is injected into the vein, which causes the vein to collapse and seal shut. The body then absorbs the vein into the surrounding tissue, making it disappear from view, and at the same time, your blood is rerouted to healthier veins in the area.

Sclerotherapy treatment with the help of duplex ultrasound allows our doctors to visually guide and monitor a needle to the exact location where the damaged vein is to be injected. Thanks to ultrasound we can now treat larger varicose veins that once required more invasive surgical treatment.

Also known as endovenous laser ablation or radiofrequency ablation, these treatments are performed comfortably in our clinic. They are a minimally invasive method of treatment for larger varicose veins and it is considered the gold standard treatment, which requires no hospitalisation or general anaesthetic.

Before treating your varicose veins with endovenous therapy, we start with a professional venous duplex ultrasound scan of your legs, which is considered the “gold standard” of diagnostic tools. Ultrasound helps us determine both the exact location and the cause of your varicose veins, which can help us select the best treatment modality for them.

A very thin filament is inserted into the varicose vein and it is sealed shut with the heat from radiofrequency energy or from a laser beam. Once the vein is shut, as with sclerotherapy, it is reabsorbed into the body and blood is rerouted to healthier veins in the area. You can return to your usual activities the same day and walking or another gentle exercise is encouraged. Over a period of a few weeks, the varicose vein disappears from view and you can enjoy both healthier circulation and prettier legs.

Also known as endovenous laser ablation or radiofrequency ablation, these treatments are performed in our clinic. They are a minimally invasive method of treatment for large varicose veins and considered the gold standard treatment not requiring any hospitalisation or general anaesthetic.

Venasealtm is a modern non-surgical treatment that uses a medical adhesive to treat varicose veins. The glue is made from cyanoacrylate and it is a safe, medical grade adhesive that is used to “glue” the large saphenous vein in the thigh shut. As the medical superglue sets within minutes, there is a faster healing process that is sometimes associated with other treatments.

The procedure is in some ways similar to sclerotherapy and endovenous therapy in that duplex ultrasound is used to precisely guide a tiny catheter into the varicose vein to introduce the sealant. Once the vein is sealed, it will gradually harden and be reabsorbed by the body and disappear from view. Patients can return to their normal activities right away as there is no recovery period needed, and walking is encouraged to speed healing. And, unlike with some of the heat-based therapies, there is no risk of burns or nerve damage with the use of medical super glue. You also are not likely to need to wear compression stockings after the procedure. Results so far show an excellent success rate, and any additional, surface varicose veins can be treated a few weeks after the medical superglue procedure with either sclerotherapy or other treatments.
