Non-surgical Varicose Veins Treatments

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)

Under ultrasound guidance, a laser fibre is placed into the abnormal vein through a tiny incision. When the laser is activated and the fibre is slowly removed, this produces a reaction in the vein wall along the treated section, resulting in collapse and sclerosis of the vein wall with minimal discomfort.

VenaSeal (Vein Glue)

VenaSeal (Vein Glue)

VenaSeal is a medical grade glue that is placed within the varicose vein using a small catheter, sealing the vein wall together in seconds. Over the coming hours, the treated vein will permanently harden over and eventually undergo absorption by the body over several months.

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy is a highly specialised procedure involving injecting a sclerosant solution into the abnormal veins using ultrasound guidance, causing the vein wall to collapse. The veins dissolve and disappear as the body gradually absorbs them.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy

The gold standard treatment of spider veins is sclerotherapy, also known as microsclerotherapy or direct vision sclerotherapy. It involves the injection of an irritating solution, through a tiny needle into the spider veins which causes them to close over and harden over.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) relies on thermal (heat based) damage to the vein, that leads to immediate closure of the vein. Once the vein is treated by radiofrequency ablation, it will gradually undergo complete absorption by the body and disappear over time.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory Phlebectomy is the surgical removal of visible varicose veins, through keyhole incision. The procedure eliminates varicose veins through a series of small punctures (as tiny as 1mm) made in the skin adjacent to the vein.

VenaBlock
