Treatment of Varicose Veins and Spider Veins

Have you been offered stripping surgery to get rid of your varicose veins?

We have good news for you. In THE VEIN CLINIC, we get rid of your varicose veins without surgery, anesthesia or the need for hospitalization. Using Endovenous Laser Treatment, Microphlebectomy and Sclerotherapy, we are confident we can eliminate all forms of varicose veins without leaving behind any surgical scars (see our case study).

After a friendly consultation, an Ultrasound examination is performed to determine the severity and extend of your venous conditions. The findings from this examination will determine the type of procedure that is best suited for you.

Duplex Ultrasound

Duplex ultrasound scanning is first used to evaluate the condition of the varicose veins. As varicose veins result from the incompetence of leg valves, leading to abnormal blood flow, the use of Duplex ultrasound is therefore one of the most accurate methods for determining the location of the leaking valves. Once the incompetent valve is localized, a suitable treatment method can then be selected. This procedure is conducted by a trained surgeon.

Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)

Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) is a new technology for the treatment of varicose veins. The EVLT utilises a laser fiber passed through a thin catheter into the vein to burn the damaged veins. This non-invasive laser treatment is highly effective – no surgery is needed and veins can be removed with less pain, less downtime and no anaesthesia and hospitalisation is required. It is ideal for treatment of big bulgy varicose veins.

Sclerotherapy

This procedure is ideal for superficial varicose veins, ugly blue veins and spider veins. It is performed by injecting a tiny amount of chemical directly into the vein causing the vein to close and disappear.

Mini-Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a method of removing varicose veins on the surface of the legs. It is done in the office under local anaesthesia. This procedure involves making tiny punctures or incisions through which the varicose veins are removed. The incisions are so small no stitches are required. Veins are very collapsible such that even larger veins may be removed through the tiny incisions used in this technique. The patient is able to walk following the procedure. 

After treatment, a compression bandage and/or compression stocking are worn to reduce pressure in the veins to increase flow in the veins and reduce the chances of forming a blood clot.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Intense pulsed light sources provide safe and effective, non-surgical treatment options for the removal of spider veins. The advanced IPL treatments allow your doctor to deliver a precise dosage of energy to each vein, with minimal risk to the skin. During your treatment, light energy is delivered to the targeted vein, in a series of short and/or long pulses. The light energy is absorbed by the blood vessels. This heat absorption causes a clogging of the blood vessel, and a gradual absorption by the body. As a result, the veins will slowly fade and disappear over time. This method of treatment has the advantage in treating finer spider veins which are too small to inject.

Veinwave

Veinwave is one of the most effective treatments available for red veins. Thermo-coagulation is based on a high frequency wave producing a thermal lesion with protection of the skin. This exclusive method is effective and relatively painless. Equipped with a magnifying loop, the surgeon introduces a fine needle over the vein and in most cases it disappears instantaneously. There is no bandaging required. Veinwave can be applied to any kind of skin complexion because it does not cause loss of pigmentation. It treats red spots and all spider veins on the legs and the feet as well as troublesome facial red veins. The sterile needle, for single use, is covered with an insulating shealth which protects the skin, enabling a targeted action without any side effects.
