What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are swollen, lumpy and twisted blue or purple veins.
Typical symptoms include:
- An uncomfortable heavy/aching feeling in the legs
- Cramps in your leg muscles
- A burning or throbbing sensation in the legs
- Swollen ankles or feet
Varicose veins are not the same as Thread veins, which are tiny red or blue vessels that sit close to the skin's surface. Find out more here.
Treatment: Radiofrequency Ablation ("RFA")
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) endorses RFA as an effective treatment for varicose veins (read their research here).
- RFA uses radiofrequency energy to treat the varicose veins and relieve symptoms (such as pain, heaviness and irritation) whilst also improving the appearance of the vein.
- This is a 'walk-in-walk-out' procedure that is performed under local anaesthetic.
- It leaves only a small amount of bruising or swelling
Treatment: Ultrasound-guided Foam Sclerotherapy ("UGFS")
This is the most cost-effective and least invasive treatment for varicose veins. UGFS relieves both skin irritation and leg pain, and improves the appearance of your legs. A foam sclerosant is injected into the veins via small plastic tubes, causing the veins to block up and eventually disappear. An ultrasound scanner is used to guide the placement of the tubes to ensure the veins are being treated in the safest and most accurate manner.
As with RFA, this is a walk-in-walk-out procedure and is performed under local anaesthetic.
UGFS can be performed on its own or alongside RFA.
All treatment packages include an examination, free ultrasound scan (worth £350), the procedure, compression stocks and aftercare.
