Minimal Downtime

Treatments require taking minimal downtime. For majority of our treatments you can be straight back at work the next day! Depending on the complexity of the treatment and your type of work/lifestyle, you may have to rest for a few days (We can provide medical certificates for this time). Compared to vein stripping surgery, this time is minimal.

Your Vein Removal Journey

1. Initial Consult

Our comprehensive initial consultation is where you will first meet your vein specialist and begin your journey. This will begin with a discussion regarding your venous history followed by an Ultrasound of the area to discover underlying issues. A personalised treatment plan will be recommended to you with a customised quote.

2. Your First Treatment

It’s time for us to work our magic! All treatments are performed within the clinic and are walk-in walk-out. Treatments take 30-60 minutes, do not require any general anaesthetic and are non-surgical.

3. Aftercare

Your vein specialist will discuss all aftercare instructions thoroughly prior to your treatment and a comprehensive aftercare guide will be supplied. Aftercare instructions include mandatory walking and compression garment wear. Your vein specialist will also be directly contactable after hours.

4. Review

This is a vital part of your journey as it gives us the opportunity to check how the veins have reacted to the treatment. Sometimes, the treatment may result in small amounts of trapped blood which can cause mild discomfort. In your review, your vein specialist will release any trapped blood.

5. Continuing your Journey

Your personalised treatment plan was made for YOU! To get the ideal outcome it is important to follow the recommended amount of sessions discussed in your initial consultation and wear your compression stockings after any treatment.

How Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy works:

Treatment is largely similar to standard sclerotherapy however with varying injecting techniques and the use of the ultrasound machine to assist. Prior to the treatment the ultrasound examination is carried out to create a virtual map of the treatment area. This will show the phlebologist the location of all abnormal veins for future treatment.

Foam sclerotherapy is the main injecting technique used for ultrasound guided sclerotherapy. Foam sclerotherapy involves the same sclerosant solution however it is mixed with air creating a foam like substance. This is used on bigger varicose veins that have a large surface area and is a very successful way in treating those bigger varicose veins. The foam solution acts like a glue causing the vein walls to stick together which results in the vein collapsing on itself. The blood then re-routes to healthier veins whilst the injected/collapsed vein breaks down and gets absorbed into the surrounding tissue.

How Endovenous Laser Ablation works:

Endovenous Laser Ablation utilises laser light energy to effectively treat extensive and large Varicose Veins. This is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed under local anaesthetic. 

Under ultrasound guidance, a fiber-optic laser is introduced to the targeted vein through a catheter. As the laser fiber is pulled out of the vein, a heat is applied resulting in the vein walls collapsing and the vein sealing off. Any blood flow through these superficial veins is automatically rerouted into healthier veins and the closed off vein naturally dissolves into the surrounding tissue over time.

The vein is then effectively removed and results are permanent for the treated vein. New varicose veins can form over time.

No, when varicose veins are treated correctly and aftercare instructions are adhered to, the treated varicose veins will disappear forever. It is important to note however, that other untreated veins may still appear in different areas.
Varicose veins form due to increased blood pressure in the veins and on the vein walls. The valves in the veins weaken resulting in pooling of blood in the veins causing distention, bulging, pain and swelling. Pregnancy, obesity, family history, direct trauma and hormonal changes are thought to be the most common causes of varicose veins. Lifestyle factors that involves long periods of standing can also predispose you to developing unwanted varicose veins
No, a doctor’s referral is not required for appointments.

 Treatments are privately charged, however most carry a Medicare rebate. You can claim a rebate on up to 6 sclerotherapy treatments in a calendar year.

Yes, there are some minor and short term side effects that may occur during the healing process.

Bruises is the most common side effect to treatment and will disappear in time. The use of Arnica ointment and compression stockings will speed up healing and lead to a faster recovery.

Tenderness and redness can occur along the injection sites and are temporary.

Lumps can develop along sections of the injected veins. These should subside in a short time.

If the lumps persist, your vein specialist will treat these in your next visit.
Blisters/sores can appear over the skin. Rarely, blisters form due to leakage of the solution used and a small sore may form, however this will heal. Please call the clinic immediately if a sore appears.

Generalised rash or itching particularly in the palms of the hands or soles of the feet usually means an allergic reaction or you may have a blood clot. If there is pain and swelling and it gets worse with walking, or you have chest pain/tightness please go to the emergency department immediately. If you are unsure, please contact the clinic and we will guide you through the next steps

Although rare and very unlikely, any medical treatment does carry a risk of possible complications. These will all be discussed with you in your initial consultation.

The needles used are very small, however you may still feel some slight pinching at the injection site as the solution enters the vein. The treatment is generally well-tolerated with minimal discomfort. Our doctors are very empathetic and will slow the process if necessary to ensure you are comfortable throughout.
This is why we have our comprehensive initial consultation with our vein specialist. After careful analysis of your venous history and an ultrasound of the veins in question, your vein specialist will recommend the best treatment to effectively and safely remove your veins.
Endovenous Laser treatment will take 60 minutes to complete. You will be able to walk out and continue your day as planned.
