Leg Vein Conditions

Leg with Varicose Veins

Varicose Veins

These are large, dilated, ropey leg veins that bulge above the skin surface, and are usually blue or green in colour. They no longer serve the primary function of veins, which is to return blood to the heart. Varicose veins can occur alone or may be accompanied by symptoms of severe venous disease

Spider Veins

Spider veins (or telangiectasias) are the tiny red or blue veins that can appear anywhere on the body, but more often on the legs, ankles, face, chest, or abdomen. Spider veins are extremely common and usually appear with larger dilated blood vessels (often blue / green in colour) called reticular veins

Severe Venous Disease

If varicose veins are left untreated, severe venous disease may occur. This condition may have signs such as eczema and swelling in the leg. Or, the skin around the lower leg may become discoloured, thickened or even ulcerated.As well as this, patients can experience heaviness, aching and tiredness in the leg.

Varicose Veins Treatments

Vein Health Vein Clinic provides all up-to-date varicose veins treatment methods for varicose veins, spider veins, lipoedema, and leg ulcers. Our philosophy is to provide a comprehensive approach to varicose veins treatment, bringing together the most leading-edge and reliable non-surgical techniques. Vein Health prefers minimally-invasive vein treatments like sclerotherapy, laser treatment, and vein glues, as all but the most severe of varicose veins can be treated in this way

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.

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.

Direct Vision Sclerotherapy

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

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.

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.

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.

Will spider veins go away?

Before we deal with this key question in-depth, it is useful to explain what spider veins are, and how they appear. The official medical term is telangiectasias and other descriptive terms often used are ‘broken capillaries’ or ‘thread veins’.
