How much does it cost to treat varicose veins and thread veins? Our guide to effective and affordable treatment

The varicose vein and thread vein treatment process

Here at Premier Veins, we try to keep our treatment process as simple and clear as possible, so you know exactly where you stand. This ensures that our patients are confident in their treatment and pricing and that there are no nasty surprises! Our process includes:

  1. A FREE, no-obligation mini-consultation
  2. An initial full consultation
  3. Tailored treatment (as detailed in your initial consultation)

FREE, no-obligation mini-consultation

We offer a FREE, no-obligation mini-consultation for anyone considering varicose vein and thread vein treatment at one of our private clinics in Birmingham, Solihull, Leamington Spa and London. The mini-consultation will provide you with an opportunity to:

  • Meet the award-winning team of vein specialists who would be carrying out your treatment;
  • Discuss our walk-in-walk-out treatment options that come with a 12-month guarantee* and all-inclusive pricing plans; and
  • Ask any questions you may have about our services.

* Only applicable to varicose vein treatments.

Initial consultation

After a free, no-obligation mini-consultation, you will then be required to book in for an initial consultation. Here, one of our world-class consultant vascular surgeons will perform a more detailed examination, including:

  • A medical history and symptoms overview; and
  • A duplex ultrasound scan to fully assess your varicose veins and thread veins.

This allows us to create a bespoke treatment plan that effectively and safely treats your vein condition, suits your lifestyle and meets your expectations. An initial consultation costs £249 and is refunded from your treatment fee.

Varicose vein treatment

Following your initial consultation, you will be provided with a tailored varicose vein treatment plan outlining the best procedures including Radiofrequency Ablation (a form of Endothermal Ablation) and Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy. These gold-standard treatments come with compressions stockings and a 12-month guarantee, meaning any follow-up treatment (if required) within a year will be provided at no extra cost to you.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) AND Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS)

RFA is a procedure that uses radiofrequency energy (like laser) while UGFS uses a chemical foam injection.

Both procedures are minimally invasive, keyhole and performed under local anaesthetic, meaning you will be back on your feet within an hour. The price depends on whether the treatment is carried out on one leg, costing £2,199 or both legs, costing £3,699.

Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS) – ONLY

UGFS costs £999 for one leg and £1,799 for both legs.

Thread vein treatment

We treat thread veins using Microsclerotherapy, which can often be performed on the same day as your initial consultation. The number of sessions required to treat your thread veins and achieve the results you want varies hugely from patient to patient. On average, we recommend between 2-4 sessions.


Microsclerotherapy is the most effective treatment for thread veins. It takes less than an hour per leg, is performed without anaesthetic, and uses a special light and a very fine needle to inject the veins with a clever liquid that helps the body to absorb them naturally. The first treatment session will cost £549, and all further treatment sessions will cost £399.
