Varicose Vein Treatment in Sunningdale

Sunningdale Private GP clinic offers treatments for varicose veins and spider veins. Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted and swollen veins typically found in the legs. They usually appear as bluish, purple lines on the surface of the skin, sometimes with accompanying swelling and discomfort.

Whilst lifestyle changes such as elevating their legs when sitting or standing, as well as wearing compression socks to reduce swelling can help to some extent Sunningdale Private GP clinic offers a range of effective treatment options including sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation and micro phlebectomy.

Your treatment will be discussed with you by our experienced veins specialist, Mr Tahir Ali, will conduct an ultrasound investigation to determine the most appropriate course of action.

Sclerotherapy can be used to treat both spider veins and larger varicose veins. During this procedure, a solution is injected directly into the vein to cause it to collapse, allowing for blood flow to be redirected to healthier veins. 

Our clinic also offers ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy – a type of sclerotherapy treatment that uses ultrasound to target the vein for improved accuracy and effectiveness. This technique is particularly useful for treating larger varicose veins that may require multiple injections. 

Finally, we offer endoscopic vein surgery for more severe cases. During this procedure, an endoscope is inserted into the affected vein to identify and remove it. This technique is often used in combination with other treatments such as laser ablation or sclerotherapy to help reduce the risk of recurrence. 

At Sunningdale Private GP clinic, we understand that vein treatment can be a difficult process and are here to help. Our experienced medical staff is committed to providing the best possible care for our patients, ensuring their safety and comfort throughout the entire treatment.

What are varicose veins?

Varicose veins are swollen or enlarged veins, which usually occur on the legs. They are generally blue or dark purple in colour and can be very uncomfortable and painful to the individual.

What causes varicose veins?

Varicose veins are caused by weak vein walls and valves, the walls of the veins can become stretched and lose their elasticity which is what causes the valve weakness. As the valves weaken blood flows backwards, causing it to collect in the vein. Varicose veins appear under the skin in the legs and can become bulged and or twisted.

What are the symptoms of varicose veins?

Symptoms of varicose veins can vary between individuals however can include:

  • aching, heavy feeling in the legs
  • a change in the appearance of the skin
  • burning or throbbing sensation in the legs
  • muscle cramps, at night
  • swollen feet and ankles

How are varicose veins treated?

The treatment of varicose veins varies depending on the individual, an initial assessment is carried out using duplex ultrasound to investigate the root cause of the problem. Using the results from the scan enables our expert Consultant to tailor a bespoke treatment package for each patient. Using this approach helps minimise the risk of recurrence to 3% or less. At Private GP Clinic, we offer several treatments including sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation and micro phlebectomy.

What are the side effects of RFA varicose vein treatment?

Radio-Frequency Ablation (RFA) is considered a low-risk procedure. The main risk is a small amount of bleeding or infection, both of which are minimal. The procedure is carried out using local anaesthesia with tiny incisions of less than 2mm. As this is a minimally invasive procedure patients can resume daily activity almost immediately with minimal risks. Any soreness or inflammation will disappear within a few days.

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution directly into the affected vein, which irritates the blood vessel causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot. Over time the collapsed vessel will turn into scar tissue, fading from view. The procedure takes between 15-30 minutes. Side effects of this procedure include raised red areas at the injection site, which may last a few days and mild itchiness may occur.

What is Microphlebectomy?

Also known as ambulatory phlebectomy, is the removal of varicose veins without surgery. The procedure involves numbing the skin around the vein, small nicks are then made in the surrounding skin and the vein is removed using a special hooked instrument. After the procedure, the leg is bandaged, and normal daily activities can be resumed within 24 hours. Compression stockings will need to be worn for 2-3 weeks following the procedure and strenuous exercise avoided for two weeks.

This is an effective treatment for veins which are just below the surface of the skin, with a success rate of more than 90%. The main risks associated with this treatment include the risk of infection and permanent discolouration of the skin.

How much does varicose vein surgery cost and how do I book an initial vein appointment?

An initial assessment costs £150 – includes a duplex scan to determine a bespoke treatment plan.

Varicose vein surgery costs from £2500, the price will vary depending on the complexity of the treatment required.
