Removal of varicose veins in Perth
Vein removal explained
Vein treatments are becoming increasingly minimally invasive and non-surgical as advances in this area progress. Physical vein removal may however still be recommended if your abnormal “branch veins” are very large.
Untreated venous reflux and associated varicose veins reflect impaired circulation and cause “stale” blood to pool in the veins of your legs, and this may cause venous ulcers, venous eczema and blood clots.
Options for vein removal
There are multiple treatment options for vein removal. Vein surgery or vein stripping used to be the predominant treatment until the 1960s. Since then, new and innovative, less invasive vein treatments have been developed and tested.
At The Vein Clinic, we offer a range of minimally invasive and non-surgical varicose vein treatments. We employ a variety of methods to minimise discomfort and downtime but more importantly to maximise effectiveness and long-term results whilst limiting disruption of your everyday life and activities.
They treatment methods for elimiating varicose veins we use include injections for veins using sclerosing agents (ultrasound guided sclerotherapy) and medical superglue as well as laser for veins (endovenous laser ablation) and our unique vein removal method (ultrasound guided ambulatory phlebectomy).
We always start with an in-depth ultrasound and clinical assessment of your vein health. Symptoms experienced or noticed at the surface are often an indicator of underlying vein problems. The veins visible on the surface can be compared to branches of a tree. The branches only exist as there is an underlying “trunk” feeding them.
Treatment is first directed to closing the “trunk” usually with laser or medical adhesive. The branches are then treated by means of foam sclerotherapy injections with or without associated removal of larger bulging surface veins.
This unique approach helps get a faster cosmetic improvement and avoid complications and recurrences after treatment.
