Laser treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that is in contrast to the old fashioned surgical method of stripping veins. Here at the British Varicose Vein Centre we specialise in laser ablation – which is the eradication and removal of material through the use of a laser beam.
But as every patient is an individual, then every laser treatment has to be considered individually also. That is why the British Varicose Vein Centre has three different, industry-leading laser machines – each specifically designed to work on different vein anatomy.
We use radial laser fibres (ELVeS), Nevertouch fibre and Baretip fibre that can each treat different varicose vein issues. It is this bespoke service that ensures that treatment is customised to the patient’s individual needs.
The treatments are performed under local anaesthetic where laser energy is delivered in short pulses. Our pioneering techniques ensure that our patients experience less pain and bruising than standard lasers.
Treating varicose veins in this manner means that patients can go about their business immediately after and not cause further disruption to their day.
