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

Varicose Veins Treatments

Vein Health Medical Clinic provides all up-to-date varicose veins treatment methods for varicose veins, spider veins, lipoedema, and leg ulcers, without the pain and scarring side effects of traditional surgery. Our philosophy is to provide an holistic approach to varicose veins treatment, bringing together the latest and safest non-surgical techniques.

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.

VeinOff

VeinOff is a treatment for varicose veins where a polymer is injected into problem varicose veins and pressure is applied from the outside.

VenaBlock

VenaBlock is used in treatment of varicose veins where a medical adhesive is injected into the problem vein in the leg under ultrasound guidance. The vein is sealed shut by this ‘glue’, causing it to harden, heal and be absorbed into the body.

AccuVein Vein Viewing System

AccuVein illuminates veins that may be otherwise undetectable with the naked eye. This improves accuracy of treatment and allows the phlebologist to confirm visually that the treatment has been successful.
