Why have private varicose vein treatment at

The British Varicose Vein Centre?

Although rarely a serious health problem, varicose veins can be unsightly and uncomfortable and if left, they can become inflamed and even ulcerate.  With many health authorities now restricting NHS treatment for varicose veins, The British Varicose Vein Centre offers access to the most-up-to-date techniques performed by consultant grade vascular surgeons at convenient times.

Expert diagnosis and assessment

Varicose veins occur when the valves in the superficial veins of the leg stop working properly.  The vascular specialists at The British Varicose Vein Centre perform Doppler ultrasound and Duplex ultrasound scanning to determine the nature of the problem and the position of the veins in order to plan the most suitable treatment.  Studies show that long term recurrence rates are reduced to 3% when scanning is used, compared to an average of 35% in cases where it is not.

Walk-in Walk-out treatments for varicose veins

The vascular surgeons at The British Varicose Vein Centre are specialists in the latest minimally invasive techniques for treating varicose veins that are performed under local anaesthetic, allowing the patient to return home, or in some cases, to work the same day.

EVLT™ and ELVeS Painless™ laser treatments

Successful in over 99% of first time treatments, EVLT™ and ELVeS™ laser procedures involve sealing a faulty vein from the inside using laser energy delivered from a fibre optic probe that is inserted through a tiny incision.  Treatment takes less than an hour and everyday activities can be resumed straight away.  The British Varicose Vein Centre is one of the few clinics in the world now able to offer the ELVeS Painless™ system that delivers an almost pain free treatment with minimal bruising.


Clarivein is the latest state-of-the-art treatment for varicose veins, including those that cause spider veins and restless leg syndrome.  It uses a fine catheter with a rotating tip in conjunction with a chemical agent to destroy the inner lining of a feeding varicose vein, closing it down.  A Clarivein procedure is quick to perform, needs very little local anaesthetic and does not cause much bruising.
