STEP / 01

Initial Consultation

Book an initial consultation to visit our specialists at The Vein Institute.  During the consultation an ultrasound scan will be performed to determine the source of your symptoms.  Your specialist will then discuss with you your concerns before recommending a treatment. 

STEP / 02

Laser Treatment

If your specialist recommends treatment after your consultation, laser treatment will most likely be the first step. The treatment is minimally invasive and performed onsite at the clinic using local anaesthetic, meaning you could walk home after the procedure.

STEP / 03

Treatment Follow Up

In the months subsequent to your laser treatment at The Vein Institute you will follow up with your specialist to have reviews and further treatment in the form of sclerotherapy. Compression stockings or bandages will also be prescribed to wear for 5 days after each treatment session.

The Vein Institute on A Current Affair

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are typically found in the leg and develop owing to faulty valves in the veins. Most often they are inherited from your parents, and cause aching and swelling especially after extended periods of standing or sitting. Other factors contributing to their development include; use of the oral contraceptive pill, multiple pregnancies, and certain types of work involving lots of standing. Varicose veins may appear lumpy, enlarged or discoloured and can also be associated with ulceration of the skin.

Do I Need My Veins Treated?

This is a difficult question to answer as each person will have a unique set of veins and symptoms. Because of this, during your initial consultation your specialist will take a thorough history and assess your veins using ultrasound technology. This will enable them to determine whether simple measures such as, compression stockings are sufficient, or, whether treatment with endovenous laser ablation (EVA) or ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is more appropriate. If your veins are large, and causing symptoms such as aching, swelling, cramping or itching, it is likely that your specialist will recommend EVA for you.
