Varicose Veins Treatment Scotland

What We Do

What We Do

The Vein Surgery is a specialist clinic based in Glasgow city centre offering a wide range of diagnostic services and treatments both surgical and non-surgical for the management of troublesome veins. Our service is underpinned by a team approach with two of the country’s leading specialists in the cosmetic treatment of vein problems.

We offer patients certain services which are unique within Scotland. Our goal is to offer integrated solutions to our patients, by understanding clearly what your issues are prior to recommending treatment.

We believe that we need to set realistic expectations with patients as to what can be achieved through treatment and that is why we insist that all prospective patients meet with one of the consultant team for a review and to agree on an appropriate treatment program.

Our main areas of focus are:

  • Varicose Veins
  • Leg Thread Veins
  • Facial Thread Veins

Although these represent the main treatment areas it is important that we understand the underlying cause of your problem and there may be a range of possible complementary treatments that we can also offer.

Sclerotherapy, or injection therapy, is one minimally invasive alternative to surgery. Sclerotherapy exists in two forms; liquid sclerotherapy and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy. They both use an irritant chemical which when injected into a varicose vein, can cause it to disappear. Liquid sclerotherapy is typically used to treat small calf veins which may persist after varicose vein surgery, Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy uses a foam form of the same agent, and a combination of ultrasound enables more accurate placement of the foam into the problematic vein. This particular form of sclerotherapy is now used extensively across the UK and in addition to treating calf veins, is now used to treat larger varicose veins in the leg.

It is a relatively painless process and does not usually require any anaesthetic. Skin staining can occur in a small proportion of patients but in most, this is temporary. Major complications are very rare. For major varicose veins in the leg, recurrence rates are inferior to alternative treatments offered.
