Patients looking for the best solution to varicose veins treatment can rest assured that at Cosmedics Vein Centre we offer the newest minimally invasive leg vein laser treatment called endovenous laser ablation – EVLA or EVLT.

NICE Approved Treatment

EVLA has been approved by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) and is only available on the NHS for severe cases and so most patients have to find a private service.

Laser Varicose Vein Removal Procedure

The procedure begins with an ultrasound scan to mark the position of the vein. Local anaesthetic is injected around the vein to ease any discomfort. A fine probe is then inserted through a small incision, usually near the knee. Laser energy is delivered in short pulses to seal the faulty vein so that blood cannot flow through. The leg is then bandaged to reduce swelling and bruising.

The removal of varicose veins does not affect blood flow because other veins and especially the deep veins take over this job. It is thus perfectly safe and indeed beneficial to remove varicose veins.

Laser Varicose Vein Treatment FAQs

Does EVLA Laser Varicose Vein Treatment Hurt?

EVLA procedures are carried out under local anaesthetic so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. Some patients experience a little discomfort afterwards for which simple paracetamol may be all that is required in the first 24 hours.

The dressings/stockings might itch a bit but that is relatively minor.

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

EVLA takes between 1-2 hours

How Soon Will I See the Results?

Most patients see a good instant result but for some patients the best results are at 6 weeks after the procedure.

How Long Will the Results Last?

Results are permanent in over 95% of cases.

Are There Any Side Effects of Varicose Veins Treatments?

Common side effects include initial discomfort for 1-2 days and swelling and bruising that can last for a week or two. There might be some pigmentation changes to the skin which should settle in 1-2 months.

What Dressings Do I Have to Wear?

After the procedure bandages will be used to dress the area. After a couple of days, these can be removed and you should then wear surgical support/compression stockings for a week.

Treatment Review

“I was delighted with my treatment with Mr Sridhar.

“Not only was I able to walk home immediately after the procedure, but I found the whole experience very straightforward and quite unbelievably not even painful. Took 2 painkillers that day but apart from that I was able to carry on my normal week, apart from having to wear stockings which were a bit hot and itchy! All the bulges had gone and so had the aching and discomfort.

“Once the stockings came off there was virtually no bruising and only a few little marks which I understand will settle over a month or two.

“It was far cheaper than other places I looked at too, so I would highly recommend Cosmedics if you have varicose veins.”

Natanya S

Really pleased with my experience from start to finish. I went for a procedure three days ago at the Bristol clinic. The receptionist was quick to call me back when I enquired about an appointment, and booked me in quickly. The waiting room was more like a visit to one of William the third's apartments at Hampton Court Palace. The really kind and friendly nurse helped to put me at ease before and during the procedure and made the experience less terrifying (I was very nervous)! And Dr Rhys Stevens also put made me feel relaxed and did a really good job, and pain free procedure. I'm very pleased with the results. Thank you!

I had been shopping around to have some Facial Thread Vein work done and was feeling unsure about it. I had concerns due to my lack of knowledge about the procedure as I have never had anything like this done before. All the other places I contacted were not so helpful and just booked me in for a consultation. However I spoke to Helen at Cosmedics on the telephone and found her helpful and informative. She listened to my concerns and even offered suggestions. It is rare these days to receive a high level of friendly customer service but on this day I did receive it. I have since had the work done and happy so far as I only had it done two days ago. However my big thanks is to Helen for putting me in the right direction. Thanks Helen!
