We all have veins that run through multiple layers of our body, these veins supply our heart and lungs with the oxygen we need through our blood. Sometimes veins can become restricted and blood flow becomes a problem, it can result in the enlargement of veins and the pooling of blood in the restricted parts of the vein. This can result in the vein becoming visible on the surface of the skin, which is called varicose veins or spider veins.

Varicose veins are most commonly found to be in the veins of the leg, which usually occurs with people who stand up for a prolonged period of time for example people in hospitality industry, spider veins can be found in any part of the body including the face, ankles, thighs and feet. Spider veins are commonly smaller and thinner than varicose veins and are usually found in small clusters.

If you feel you may have varicose or spider veins you could be suffering from any number of symptoms such as restlessness, swelling, throbbing, numbness or tiredness of the leg in which the varicose vein is contained.

Varicose and spider veins Treatment

Varicose and spider veins can be treated in 2 different ways these are:

Endovenous Laser Abortion – ELA is one of the most recent types of treatment for varicose and spider veins using laser light, it seals the underlying incompetent veins that leads to varicose veins. During the ELA procedure a small laser fibre is inserted into the problem vein. ELA is performed under a local anaesthetic so you will be awake throughout the procedure while only feeling little or no discomfort at all. After your treatment of ELA you will need to wear a compression sock, and begin to walk almost immediately. Walking and standing can be resumed the same day.

Sclerotherapy – Sclerotherapy vein removal is a non surgical procedure which does not use any anaesthetic . It can be used to treat various size veins using a very small and fine needle. During this treatment a small amount of ‘sclerosing solution’ is injected into your problem veins. The use of the very fine needle means that there is little discomfort when undertaking this procedure, and multiple veins can be done at one time. There is also the option of having ultrasounds guided sclerotherapy (UGS) this means that guided by ultrasound, underlying problem veins can be found quicker and easier, and therefore more treatable.

If varicose of spider veins are causing you problems with walking, playing sports, or even just causing you general discomfort, do not hesitate to contact your medical professional as the procedure is quick and easy and can leave you being able to walk within 30 minutes of the treatment ending.
