Varicose Veins Treatment Options

If you are dealing with varicose veins there are a number of medical treatments available depending on the severity of your condition and other health factors. A consultation with a vascular surgeon will be the first step in determining what treatment you can opt for to relieve your condition. Here are some of the common solutions you can try:

Self-Care Remedies

  • Exercise: Regular physical activity, especially exercises that engage the calf muscles, can help improve blood circulation and strengthen the veins. Walking and swimming are also good options.

  • Leg elevation: Elevating your legs above heart level can reduce swelling and improve blood flow.

  • Compression stockings: Wearing compression stockings can help reduce the symptoms of varicose veins through external pressure that supports blood flow in the legs.


Minimally Invasive Procedures

  • Sclerotherapy: With this procedure, a special solution is injected into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and fade over time. This procedure is often used for smaller varicose veins and spider veins.

  • Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) or Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA): These procedures involve using heat, generated through laser or radiofrequency energy, to heat and close off the affected veins, redirecting blood flow to healthier veins.

  • Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy: This procedure is similar to traditional sclerotherapy but uses a foam-based solution instead. This technique is used for larger veins,  that are not suitable for standard sclerotherapy.

  • VenaSeal closure: In this procedure, the consultant vascular surgeon will shut the affected vein with a medical adhesive, allowing blood to reroute through healthier veins.



  • Vein stripping and ligation: This surgical procedure involves tying off and removing the damaged vein and is generally used for severe cases or, when other treatments have failed.

  • Ambulatory phlebectomy: This minimally invasive surgical procedure involves the removal of smaller varicose veins through tiny incisions.

  • Endoscopic vein surgery: A minimally invasive surgery used to treat severe cases where ulcers have formed. The vascular surgeon will use an endoscope to visualise and remove damaged veins.
