Venous Avulsions

Following laser therapy, a large number of our patients ask for the removal of their visible, lumpy veins. This is not always necessary, as in half of all our patients laser closure of the main feeding vein starves its adjoining veins of blood and results in their disappearance. This does however take up to six months.

If you would like these veins removed during your laser operation, this is easily done using the same local anaesthetic as for the main feeding vein and a tiny hook. There will not be any visible scars.
