When searching for varicose vein therapy Adelaide has many options available. You can choose a procedure involving Endovenous laser treatment, Micro sclerotherapy, or Tumescent anaesthesia, or you can go under general anaesthesia. Each of these procedures is effective for treating varicose veins. To find out more about each treatment, read the following descriptions.
Endovenous laser treatment
Endovenous laser treatment for varicose Adelaide uses a thin beam of light and heat to treat swollen, bulging veins. The laser closes the affected vein, causing scar tissue to form within it. Compared to traditional surgery, endovenous laser treatment is safe and minimally invasive. However, during the procedure, patients may experience discomfort for several days or weeks following the procedure.
Traditional surgical procedures for varicose veins Adelaide typically involve stripping and junctional ligation of the saphenous vein. While the results are generally good, the procedure can result in complications, such as an incompetent branch of the great saphenous vein. Despite these limitations, endovenous technology has evolved to the point where it can effectively treat almost all cases of varicose veins without the need for open surgery.
The procedure will be painless, and you will be given a bandage for 24 hours afterwards. Some patients may experience numbness in their legs after the procedure. However, it is normal and is only temporary. A small risk of blood clots in deep leg veins is rare (one in a thousand).
Micro sclerotherapy for varicose veins Adelaide is a minimally invasive procedure. The procedure requires ultrasound waves to heat the vein wall and clot the blood. Once the treatment is complete, the patient may return to normal activities within a few days. This procedure can even be used to treat deep vein thrombosis.
After treatment, you may experience bruising at the injection site. The bruising can be extensive and take weeks to go away. The treated veins appear darker after the procedure but fade slowly over time. Brown discolouration of the skin over the treated area may take six weeks to a year to fade. If the discolouration persists, it may be permanent.
In Australia, sclerotherapy has been used to treat leg veins for over 20 years. Varicose vein therapy Adelaide doctors perform this treatment using ultrasound to scan the leg area and inject a sclerosant into the veins. The sclerosant destroys the vein’s lining wall, resulting in a smaller, scarred vein. Micro sclerotherapy is an effective treatment for varicose veins and spider veins.
Though the process of varicose vein therapy is relatively pain-free, the thought of undergoing it may be frightening. So we’ve undertaken a research study, observed vein treatment in a clinical environment, spoken with patients, and interviewed a leading vein surgeon in Adelaide.

An endothermal ablation is an option for treating saphenous vein incompetence at the calf level. This treatment may also be performed to treat underlying sural nerve neuralgia. Venefit, Endovenous Laser Ablation, and Radiofrequency Induced Thermal Therapy are all endothermal procedures. Both endovenous procedures use the same technique, except that radiofrequency treatment is performed under local anaesthesia without sedation. The procedure is performed under an ultrasound guidance sheath inserted into the refluxing vein. Once inside the refluxing vein, dilute local anaesthesia is injected outside the vein. The use of tumescent anaesthesia during endothermal ablation increases the success rate of occlusion of the treated vein.
The use of tumescent anaesthesia is essential for the procedure, as it prevents burns to the surrounding tissue. The tumescent solution used in this procedure is a 50/50 fixed nitrous oxide/oxygen mixture. A study on this topic compared 30 patients who underwent EVLA to 30 who inhaled only nitrous oxide. Afterwards, the patients completed questionnaires to assess the procedure’s success and side effects.
Several options are available for varicose vein therapy Adelaide, including surgery and non-surgical methods. Non-surgical treatments are often more effective than surgical procedures and involve less downtime and pain. In addition, non-surgical methods require minimal recovery time, meaning patients are not forced to take time off work. The Vein Institute Adelaide has a highly trained and experienced doctor with advanced training in non-surgical varicose vein treatment. Dr Zil Yassine, a specialist in non-surgical techniques, was trained in Sydney and underwent his American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine exams in 2014.
