Choice of varicose veins treatments
Varicose veins often trouble patients quietly for years before they seek out medical help when they fed up with them. Modern advances in lasers, injections and surgery mean the choices for varicose vein treatments are numerous and it can be confusing to know which is the best treatment for you.
In the case of Varicose Veins, the only way to know for sure which is the best treatment is to have an ultrasound scan. At Cosmedics our vascular surgeon does this scan as part of your consultation.

Your vein removal questions answered
Varicose veins laser treatment
The most popular treatment for varicose veins we have for our patients is the EVLA (Endovenous Laser Ablation)
- Safe and painless laser varicose vein removal procedure
- Same day walk in walk out treatment
- Removes the veins in your legs permanently
- Over a 95% success rate
- Available at our London Vein Treatment Centre
- NICE guidelines recognise that EVLA is the best way to remove the majority of varicose veins
- The NHS tends not to treat varicose veins until they are severe in nature as they deem them cosmetic so seeking private treatments in many cases are now the only option.
What about varicose vein stripping surgery?
Surgical Varicose Vein Removal
Vein stripping is a method in which the NHS traditionally tends to use for treating varicose veins. However, it was associated with a high failure rate (50%) and painful long recovery. The NHS now do very little varicose vein removal. Vein stripping is no longer the first choice for varicose veins and we do not offer it at Cosmedics Skin Clinics. The treatment has been superseded by EVLA (laser varicose vein treatment).
Laser treatment for varicose veins means the old version of surgical ‘stripping’ or pulling out of the veins is now rarely performed. Micro or minimally invasive surgery has now superseded all the previous forms of vein surgery.
Microsurgery Varicose Vein Removal
Microsurgery is carried out in some cases at the same time as the endovenous laser treatment to help remove small areas that are simply too bulky to melt away. This procedure is known as phlebectomy and can also be used on its own for smaller veins if indicated. By using micro incisions that are only 2mm in size the wounds heal very quickly and leave no marks, only super smooth legs.
Phlebectomy (surgical removal of veins) is done under local anaesthetic. Firstly, the surgeon will make micro punctures or tiny incisions in the varicose vein. Then the varicose veins are removed using a special phlebectomy hook which is used to pull out each varicose vein in turn. The incisions are so small that no stitches are required. Phlebectomy is included within our laser varicose vein removal procedure to ensure the best results and pricing. Microsurgical vein removal is also available on its own from £500. During your consultation, your vascular surgeon will explain your options to you and help you decide which treatment is best for you.
