Usually appearing on legs and feet, they might turn out to be more than just an aesthetic issue. Raised, swollen and enlarged varicose veins originate due to a defect in valves controlling flow of blood from your veins to your heart. When you walk or stand the blood pressure in the veins located in your legs or feet increases. If the valves do not operate properly, blood pools gather and enlarge the veins, which can turn blue or dark purple. Varicose veins and spider veins are sometimes removed just for cosmetic reasons. Quite often they ache and make you feel discomfort or even lead to more serious problems like vein blockage. That is when you should have them removed. We offer a few methods of varicose veins removal.
EVLT (from €825 / £660)
EVLT is a method of treating varicose veins with a help of a laser. It replaces the classic vein stripping surgery which is very painful and quite long. EVLT is quicker, easier, less painful and carries less risk of complications. It allows quick recovery, less bruising and bleeding. It is also very effective (93%-98%). EVLT stands for Endovenous Laser Treatment of Varicose Veins.
EVRF (from €825 / £660)
EVRF is the method of treating varicose veins with the help of radiofrequency. It replaces the classic vein stripping surgery and is currently the safest method available.

EVRF significantly increases postoperative comfort for the patient: less pain, less skin discoloration, much lower risk of complications, no major hematoma. This method is highly efficient (95%-97%) and ideal for closing those veins that are located close to the skin. This method has become prefered for both the patients and the surgeons.
