Varicose veins are lumpy, enlarged veins that can develop in the leg. You might feel that they are unsightly and cause you embarrassment, but the good news is that they can be safely be removed using one of our treatment techniques.
We offer three different methods of varicose vein removal. Our non-surgical options include Radiofrequency VNUS Closure, which uses heat to seal the vein from the inside. The other non-surgical option we provide is Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) which uses laser light to seal the varicose vein from the inside.
Our surgical option is called Vein Avulsion, where our highly qualified surgeons make a small incision into the skin and the varicose veins are removed.
The procedure will either close off the unwanted vein, or remove it completely. The benefit of having varicose veins removed is that any swelling you may be experiencing in the area is eliminated, and so the pain they can cause is stopped.
Once the vein is removed, you should experience improved circulation and may feel better about how your legs look, meaning that you are happier wearing the clothes you want without worrying about your varicose vein/s being shown.
The procedure involves minimal pain, and with our advanced technology, minimal scarring.
It is important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring – just as with all types of medical aesthetic treatment.
Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through any risks and complications, although possible side effects are usually minimal. They include scar tissue, sensitivity and mild pain.
Although varicose veins are usually medically harmless, you may feel that removing them and having an even skin tone would make you feel happier about your overall appearance.
You may have noticed your varicose vein getting bigger, or it could be causing you discomfort while you are trying to sleep. It may be bothering you if it is stopping you from wearing particular clothes as you feel conscious about it being on show.
Our medical aesthetics practitioner can guide you through the removal procedure at your free treatment consultation to see if it is right for you.
We understand that every patient’s requirements are different, and so treatment will be tailored specifically to you. As a responsible provider of medical aesthetics, we place a great deal of importance on our free, no-obligation consultations.
Your practitioner will provide a detailed pricing overview for your treatment following your consultation process. To read more about the flexible credit options available via our partnership with specialist financial providers, please view our pricing and finance page.

Your journey step by step
Your journey with The Hospital Group begins with a consultation with our friendly medical aesthetic practitioners, this may be an Aesthetician, Nurse Practitioner or Doctor. During this conversation you can talk through why you’re interested in this treatment, how much it costs, if there are finance options available to you, whether you’re suitable for treatment, if you’ll need a one off treatment, or a full course, as well as potential treatment dates.
You can ask our medical aesthetic practitioners any questions as they are extremely knowledgeable and have undertaken extensive training. If you feel ready to proceed, we can carry out a laser patch test (where applicable) and book your first treatment for a date and time that suits you.
You can ask your medical aesthetic practitioner any final questions on the day of the treatment. All pre- and post-treatment advice will be discussed prior to the day itself, so you will know exactly what to expect during your treatment, including how long it will take, and how it will feel.
For most medical aesthetic treatments, you will be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be able to go about your normal day-to-day activities. If you experience any mild discomfort, redness or swelling, this will subside within the following days. Any specific aftercare requirements will be discussed at your consultation.
