Varicose Vein Removal, Birmingham

At Premier Veins, we work in partnership with you to arrive at the best treatment plan for your specific leg issues and circumstances. Following an initial consultation, we will offer you one or more of the treatment options described below:

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommends RFA as the first line of treatment for varicose veins. It is a walk-in-walk-out procedure performed under local anaesthetic.

RFA uses radiofrequency energy to improve the appearance of trunk veins and relieve symptoms such as heaviness, pain and skin irritation. It can also be used alongside Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy to treat more troublesome superficial varicose veins.

RFA only leaves a tiny amount of scarring, bruising or swelling, and the procedure is generally less painful and more convenient than laser treatment. We bandage the treated area using a full-length compression stocking.

Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS)

Our quickest, most cost-effective and least invasive treatment for trunk varicose veins and reticular veins. UGFS relieves leg pain and skin irritation and improves the appearance of your legs. This walk-in-walk-out procedure uses local anaesthetic.

We dress your leg with compression pads, a bandage and an elastic compression stocking that you’ll wear for three to five days. You should notice reduced symptoms immediately after treatment, and an improvement in the appearance soon after. It can take up to 12 months to see the final cosmetic results.

Our specialists are highly experienced in this technique and can achieve the very best results for you. We can perform UGFS on its own or alongside endothermal ablation to resolve your leg issues in a single short visit.

Microsclerotherapy

Microsclerotherapy is the most effective treatment for small reticular veins and thread veins (spider veins). It is a straightforward walk-in-walk-out procedure that takes less than an hour.

We use a special light and a very fine needle to inject the veins with liquid sclerosant. We will dress your leg in a compression stocking to prevent blood from re-entering the treated veins, allowing the body to reabsorb them.

You will usually start to see an improvement within eight weeks. It can take up to eighteen months to achieve full cosmetic results, and patients may need more than one treatment.

I highly recommend Premier Veins, from start to finish Mr Claridge and his team were fantastic. I have suffered with pain full varicose veins and varicose eczema for years. The difference in my legs just a few months after treatment is incredible. No more sore, swollen, itchy legs! And the after care was plan was easy to follow

Could not recommend Premier Veins enough. From start to finish they have been amazing, especially after some issues with my insurance company. Sue and Ruth were both extremely helpful. I told Mr Adam that I was particularly nervous about the procedure and he did everything he could to keep me calm, his nurse was also superb. 6 weeks after the procedure I can already see the results and can’t wait for things to fully heal.

I booked an appointment for my father to see Mr Adam for a second opinion and some reassurance about his health. I cannot recommend Mr Adam enough he is a lovely man who listened, took time to explain everything to my father who left completely reassured. Fantastic service from booking through to consultation.

Recently had an appointment with Mr Adam for a varicose problem needing a scan . Mr Adam was able to scan but suggested it was not a vascular problem leading to a very prompt correct diagnosis that cleared up a long standing issue in just a few days . Cannot fault the care received ,- this was my 84 year old father and he came out having been treated extremely well ( and kindly!! ) Communication was excellent , very quick appointment . Highly recommend .

My experience with Premier Veins was top rate. The clinic is comfortable and well organised despite restrictions placed on everywhere by COVID. It was easy to book and appointments were confirmed via email. A written summary was posted to me.The team I met, Martin Claridge and Gareth, were welcolming, reassuring and extremely professional. I was put at ease and the treatment was completed in two sessions of around an hour each. There was only mild discomfort during the procedures and everything was explained in detail. My varicose veins are completely healed. I can thoroughly recomend Premier Veins.
