What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are swollen veins that appear blue or purple in colour and often look twisted or lumpy. They are treated by sealing or eliminating diseased veins and redirecting blood flow to healthy veins to improve circulation throughout your body. You can learn all about the treatment by going through the information below or talking to Naomi, our clever and friendly chat bot who’s ready and waiting to reveal more about the treatment. Talk to Naomi…

Why do people have Varicose Veins?
People choose to have varicose vein treatment to improve the appearance of the veins and relieve the aching pain and discomfort caused by the varicose veins.

Am I a good candidate?
If you believe your veins are getting dark purple or blue in colour, and appear twisted and bulging, then varicose veins treatment may be appropriate for you.

What are my options?
There are a number of non surgical treatments for varicose veins which seal the problem veins, but only surgery can fully remove problem veins.

In endovenous Laser Treatment, a thin tube (a laser thread) is inserted into the vein through a small cut. The laser probe heats the vein from the inside, causing it to close.

In radiofrequency ablation, a thin tube is inserted into the vein above or below the knee. The tube delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein wall causing it to collapse and seal shut.

In sclerotherapy, a glycerin like solution is injected into the affected vein to close it completely, so that it no longer carries blood.

What should I look out for?
Varicose Veins are relatively low risk in the hands of a good medical practitioner. Serious complications are rare.

Other risks specific to varicose veins surgery are outlined below:

  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Discolouration of the skin
  • Scarring.
