Varicose veins treatment manchester

Varicose veins refer to swollen, enlarged veins often noticed in legs and feet, that appear bumpy, twisted and are blue or dark purple. They arise from blood drainage issues where valves in our veins fail to close correctly, causing blood to retreat into the legs and collect in the veins, making them distended due to increased pressure. These veins are not only visible but also cause discomfort with symptoms like tiring, heavy, throbbing legs and swollen feet and ankles. The surrounding skin may be dry and itchy, and muscle cramp is common, especially at night.

Varicose veins, a prevalent vein condition, affect up to 40% of women and 20% of men. They’re caused by weak vein walls and valves. The likelihood of developing varicose veins is higher in women, especially as pregnancy increases the risk. Advanced age, overweight and extended periods of standing also heighten your risk of developing varicose veins.

HOW ARE VARICOSE VEINS TREATED?

Varicose veins, a prevalent vein condition, affect up to 40% of women and 20% of men. They’re caused by weak vein walls and valves. The likelihood of developing varicose veins is higher in women, especially as pregnancy increases the risk. Advanced age, overweight, and extended periods of standing also heighten your risk of developing varicose veins.

Compression stockings, often regarded as the first line of defence, constrict the circumference of the veins through external pressure. However, this approach might only be suitable for some, and its effectiveness in preventing varicose veins from worsening or averting new ones from developing is still being determined. At our clinic, we offer numerous varicose vein treatment options. During your consultation, we’ll evaluate your condition and suggest the most effective treatment plan.

Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution, often in the form of foam, directly into the affected vein. This solution causes a reaction with the vein wall, leading to inflammation and scarring, which redirects blood flow to healthier veins. Eventually, this process closes off the vein, and the collapsed vein is reabsorbed into the surrounding tissue, gradually fading away. After undergoing sclerotherapy, the treated veins typically shrink and disappear within a few weeks, though it can sometimes take a month or longer to see the full results. The procedure is usually performed under local anaesthetic, allowing you to go home the same day.

The ELVeS Radial™ procedure is a gentle and highly effective treatment for varicose veins. It involves inserting a probe into the affected vein through a small puncture site. The probe directs laser light into the vein using targeted radial emission, sealing the vein. This procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, takes about 30 minutes, and causes little to no pain during or after the treatment. Patients can resume normal activities immediately, and there is minimal to no scarring or bruising, making it one of the most popular treatments for varicose veins.
Microsclerotherapy is an effective treatment for thread veins and varicose veins. It involves injecting a liquid directly into the veins, which destroys them and causes them to disappear. This non-surgical procedure only requires an injection into the treatment area. After the treatment, compression must be worn for a few weeks to allow the body time to transform the affected vein into scar tissue.

Phlebectomy, also known as stab avulsion, microphlebectomy or ambulatory phlebectomy is a technique used to remove varicose veins. In this procedure, one or two small incisions are made in the skin to identify, cut and remove the affected vein using a suction device. The treatment can be performed under either local or general anaesthetic. Some bleeding or bruising may occur in the weeks following the procedure.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Varicose veins will not disappear on their own. However, you can alleviate symptoms at home by exercising regularly, avoiding prolonged standing, elevating the affected area while resting, and wearing compression stockings. If the condition is severe and causing pain or posing a risk of serious complications, a consultant will recommend an appropriate treatment for you.
Recovery time varies depending on the type of treatment and the number of veins treated. The ELVeS Radial™ Laser procedure is popular because it requires no recovery time, allowing patients to resume normal activities immediately. For other treatments like Sclerotherapy and Phlebectomy, it is recommended to avoid exercise for about 3-5 days following the procedure. Bruising from these treatments typically heals within 2-6 weeks.
