Varicose veins are veins that can be seen through the skin and are an unfortunate part of getting older, which are hard to avoid but nowadays easy to treat.

The veins are large, raised, swollen blood vessels that twist and turn and can be painful and unsightly, and can also make us feel unattractive.

But with the technology of Endovenous Ablation, varicose veins can be removed for good in a quick procedure with very little downtime – patients can get on with work and play the very next day, and depending on your health fund, the procedure might not incur any of pocket expenses.

Imagine being able to get those pins out again with no fear of unsightly veins and not a care in the world.

Varicose veins have, in the past, been a problem women have covered up with stockings and long pants, but now there’s no need to hide, because there is an easy treatment which will solve the problem for good.

EVA is the gold standard in the treatment of varicose veins, under local anaesthetic and laser or radiofrequency catheter (both generate heat) is inserted into the vein.  The device removes the vein by damaging the walls of the vein, which effectively closes the refluxing vein.

The whole procedure takes around 30 minutes, and is performed in a private hospital under very light sedation.  Health funds recognise the importance of the procedure and cover some or all of the costs depending on your individual policy. Find out more by watching the video below.
