What are varicose veins?


Varicose veins, also known as varicosities, are twisted, larger veins, usually found on the legs and feet. They are typically blue or dark purple in colour, and can often cause pain. Although over 25% of adults suffer from this condition, it is more common in women than men.

What causes varicose veins?


Varicose Veins are usually caused by weak or damaged vein walls and valves. Inside your veins are tiny one-way valves that open to help pump the blood to your heart, and then close to prevent it flowing backwards.

Sometimes the walls of the veins become stretched and lose their elasticity, causing the valves to weaken. Blood will then flow backwards, collecting in pools and resulting in stretched and twisted veins, also known as varicose veins.

Varicose veins treatments


Our renowned vascular surgeons can deliver minimally invasive procedures to help relieve your symptoms and improve the overall cosmetic appearance.

These include Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) and Sclerotherapy. Following your consultation and diagnosis, the consultant will only recommend treatment options that are tailored to your specific needs.

Arrange a consultation


  • Step 1 – Attend a No Obligation Consultation
  • Step 2 – We carry out an ultrasound scan to diagnose the vein problem
  • Step 3 – An expert surgeon will then provide a bespoke treatment plan to address your vein issue

By choosing our vein removal clinic in Leeds, you are assured of the best treatments from one of the UK's leading cosmetic surgery providers.

Sclerotherapy


Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure which uses a fine needle to inject sclerosant into the veins that need treatment, under the guidance of ultrasound imaging. Sclerotherapy treatments are suitable for removing small varicose veins (reticular veins) and thread veins (spider veins).

This procedure is also known to help relieve the symptoms of your condition, including pain and itching. Depending on the size and severity of your varicose veins, sclerotherapy can take up to 1 hour.

Aftercare


You may be advised to wear compression socks or stockings for 24 hours following your treatment. These can then only be worn during the day and removed at night.

Your surgeon will provide you with clear instructions as to what you need to do and avoid to make sure the results of the procedure are maximised.

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)


Recommended by the National Institute of Care and Excellence (NICE), Endovenous Laser Ablation has transformed the treatment of varicose veins, demonstrating safe, long-term results. This procedure is guided by an ultrasound scanner to insert a laser fibre into the leg veins that need treatment.

The veins are then destroyed using heat and naturally absorbed by the body over time. EVLA is also carried out under local anaesthetic, so the level of discomfort is minimal and most patients do not feel any pain at all.

Aftercare


Depending on the number of veins to be removed, EVLA takes 1-2 hours, meaning you can return home the same day. After the procedure, you will be given a compression stocking to wear for 1 week along with clear instructions on what to do and what to avoid. 

You will also be asked to return for a follow-up appointment with your surgeon, to ensure the best results.

  • Diagnostic Scan: from £250

Please note that the exact cost of your varicose vein treatment depends on the severity of your condition and which procedure is actually right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Although most varicose veins rarely present a danger, those that are symptomatic may lead to serious complications if left untreated. These can include rashes, infections, bleeding, sores blood clots and vein rupture.

Although varicose veins are rarely a serious condition, if you experience the following symptoms, you should immediately seek medical attention:

  • Severe pain and swelling in the legs
  • Continuous aching, especially at night
  • Your varicose veins have turned red and feel very tender to the touch
  • Your varicose veins are bleeding either due to injury or on their own
  • The skin surrounding varicose veins is itchy, dry and discoloured
  • You have developed ulcers in the skin (open sores)
  • Home remedies including compression stockings do not provide relief for your varicose veins symptoms.

Most patients recover very quickly after undergoing a varicose vein treatment. In the case of EVLA and Sclerotherapy, patients can resume their daily activities immediately. However, strenuous exercise should be avoided and gradually be built up to the desired amounts.

Although there are a range of home remedies that may help relieve the symptoms, varicose veins cannot be removed at home. If the appearance of your varicose veins is causing you distress, medical treatments are the most efficient option to address your concerns.

Unlike varicose veins, thread veins or spider veins are much smaller and can be found just underneath the skin surface. They appear as red or purple blotches of squiggly veins, and can often be confused with bruises. 

Thread veins are typically a result of genetics, pregnancy hormones, exposure to sunlight, smoking etc. and tend to occur more often on the legs and face. 

Thread vein removal is carried out using lasers and IPL. For best results, an average of 5 sessions is recommended to achieve a smooth, blemish-free skin.
