Varicose and thread vein treatments

Premier Veins is an award-winning private varicose vein and thread vein treatment centre. We work in partnership with you to arrive at the best treatment plan for your specific vein 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 keyhole procedure performed under local anaesthetic.

RFA uses radiofrequency energy (like laser) to improve the appearance of less superficial varicose 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 varicose veins.

RFA only leaves a tiny amount of scarring, bruising or swelling, and the procedure is generally less painful and more convenient than other treatment options. We also bandage the area using a full-length compression stocking. It is important to note, we proudly offer a 12-month guarantee for this treatment.

Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS)

Our quickest, most cost-effective and least invasive treatment for more superficial varicose veins. UGFS relieves pain and skin irritation and improves the appearance of your legs and feet. It is a walk-in-walk-out procedure uses local anaesthetic and a foam injection.

Following treatment, we will dress your leg/foot with compression pads, a bandage and an elastic compression stocking that you’ll wear for three to five days. You should notice reduced symptoms straight away, 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 radiofrequency ablation to resolve your vein issues in a single short visit. It is important to note, we proudly offer a 12-month guarantee for this treatment.

Microsclerotherapy

Microsclerotherapy is the most effective treatment for 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 then dress your leg/feet 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.

Delighted from start to finish with the treatment from Premier Veins and would thoroughly recommend them for vascular issues Mr Claridge carried out my varicose vein treatment with great expertise and I would most certainly, without hesitation, contact him again should the need arise.

Just finished my final consultation with Mr Donald Adam following procedures on both of my legs After a bad experience at an expensive competitor in the local vicinity , where the vein was not treated satisfactorily and the general arrogant, pompous attitude of the long standing, incumbent "Professor" of Vascular Surgery i was sceptical about approaching another practice I need not have worried as from start to finish , i was impressed not only with the subsequent relatively pain free procedures and end result but also Mr Adam's down to earth, friendly nature throughout I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Adam in the effective treatment of varicose veins and only wish i had taken photographs of the large , bulbous veins that i had previously endured in both legs to highlight how effective his work is Thanks again and I look forward to having the confidence to wear shorts again on my upcoming holiday :)

I’ve had treatment for varicose veins on both legs in the past eight weeks. Mr Nasr and his team are extremely kind and professional. I was thoroughly informed about, and prepared for, the treatment and am very pleased with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend this clinic.

I had a varicose vein treated by Mr Nasr at his clinic in Birmingham. I cannot thank Mr Nasr and all his staff for the excellent service both before, during and post op. I was kept thoroughly informed of what the procedure would entail throughout. I would recommend his clinic to anyone and wouldn’t hesitate to go back again.
