How it works

A comprehensive consultation and colour duplex ultrasound scan to map the venous system in your legs are always the first steps in our treatment pathway. After this initial consultation, you will have a better understanding of your condition, the options available to you and the implications of any vein treatment we recommend

The evidence-based treatments we specialise in are walk-in, walk-out procedures that are both safe and effective while causing the least amount of discomfort. Our aftercare service will ensure that you are fully supported throughout your recovery

Patients are typically advised to return six to eight weeks after their initial treatment to ensure the treatment has been successful and have any residual varicose veins treated with further foam sclerotherapy

The cost of aftercare and this follow up appointment is included in our fixed price packages

The UKVC method: what and why

  • Results and evidence matter. Our care pathways have been rigorously designed by Stephen Black and Dr Peter Finigan, to ground our whole process in the latest medical science, and gear everything we do towards delivering the best outcome for each patient
  • To identify the source of your varicose veins and map their course, we start with a full duplex ultrasound of the legs. (For thread or spider veins in the face and elsewhere, see below)
  • The current clinical evidence (including this study published in the British Journal of Surgery) indicates that most varicose veins are best treated using specialist radiofrequency equipment. This technology means the procedure can be carried out under local anaesthetic, in a suitable clinical setting

Vein disorders and how to treat them

Vein disease or Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) will affect up to 20 million people in the UK at some point in their lives. Symptoms include varicose veins (large ‘trunk’ and smaller ‘reticular’ types), usually in the legs and feet, and thread or spider veins (‘teleangiectasia’ varicose veins)

Vein disease tends to get worse the older we are. But - along with any susceptibility we've inherited in our genes - lifestyle factors including our diet, how active we are, and whether we smoke can all play their part in determining how soon and how badly we're affected

How does poor circulation lead to varicose veins? Normally, healthy veins allow blood flow up from the feet to the heart, using tiny valves to keep the blood rising. Problems occur when these valves fail, or muscles become weak, allowing blood to pool and collect in the vein, which makes it swell up
