Men and Varicose Veins

Getting treatment for varicose veins is not just about looking better, nor is it an issue reserved just for women. In fact, pain and swelling in the legs comes about more often when there’s a heavy load to bear, so it happens a lot for men who are labourers, tradies or those who spend a lot of time on their feet.

At The Vein Institute, we deal with many genuine health concerns, with men’s symptoms ranging from aching, tired legs, swollen ankles and unsightly veins, through to the prevention of more serious problems that can arise when varicose veins are left untreated.

We’re great when it comes to dealing with vein health for guys, and these days there’s absolutely no need to suffer pain from swollen veins, let alone the embarrassment from their appearance.

Patient Outcome Example

Men suffer from varicose veins as much as women

Timothy suffered from Varicose Veins in his right leg.  He came to The Vein Institute and was treated with Endovenous Laser Therapy.  The result was the removal of the varicose vein, the result shown in this picture is after 3 treatments at Vein Institute.

You can read more about the outcomes possible in Calvin’s story here. Thanks to procedures such as endovenous laser ablation and scleropathy, complicated surgery and recovery is no longer necessary, and patients can literally walk away from a session with minimal or no discomfort or disruption to their working routine.

Don’t ignore the symptoms

It is an important aspect of men’s health, Australia-wide, especially when you consider that around one-third of our population suffers from this condition and that in some cases, it can lead to very serious health issues.

Outside of the appearance of the varicose veins, other symptoms include;

  • Aching and throbbing legs
  • Swelling and itching of the legs at the end of the day
  • Rarely a brown pigment can be seen around the veins


When you need to get rid of varicose veins, the good news is that it’s not the complicated and drawn-out procedure that people think it is, or that it used to be in times gone by. Fortunately now, even serious and large varicose veins can be treated without surgery and without having to take time off work for recovery.

Procedures can be carried out in as quickly as an hour – in the clinic not a hospital. Even long-standing and large veins can be dealt with in a few short sessions.

Non-surgical treatment including laser therapy is the gold standard in varicose vein treatment. Procedures include;

  • Endovenous Laser Ablation
  • Radio Frequency Ablation
  • Medical super glue
  • Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy

Is treatment necessary?

While treatment may not be necessary if every case, we always recommend that you discuss your varicose vein condition with one of the doctors at The Vein Institute.  Seeing one of the doctors at The Vein Institute will help you understand the extent of the varicose vein problem and see if there are any other underlying medical issues.

What happens during the first consultation

During your first consultation, one of our doctors will take a full medical history from you. We will also take a ultrasound scan of the legs affected by varicose veins. Afterwards the doctor will outline the necessary treatment to remove your varicose veins.
