- Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA)
- ClariVein™ (MOCA) What is MOCA? MOCA – is an abbreviation for mechanochemical ablation – the scientific name for ClariVein
- Foam Sclerotherapy – ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS)
- VNUS closure technique

ClariVein™ A tiny rotating wire is inserted inside the varicose vein whilst a sclerosant solution is injected to break down and seal the vein. This technique is the least invasive, requiring the smallest amount of local anaesthetic. The procedure takes around 30 minutes per leg.
Endovenous Laser (EVLA) A laser fibre is administered inside the vein. The laser heat penetrates the vein wall and as it is withdrawn up the leg the vein is destroyed. The procedure takes around 30 minutes per leg under local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic according to patient preference.
Foam Sclerotherapy A foam is injected into the veins and this causes them to collapse and fibrose. Ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy can treat obvious varicose veins as well as incompetent long and short saphenous veins causing underlying problems. The procedure is performed in the Outpatient Clinic.
Radiofrequency heat is used to close the varicose vein via a closure catheter. The catheter is positioned into the varicose vein through a very small incision in the skin. This treatment is also known as endovenous thermal ablation and Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of varicose veins.
A safe and effective treatment designed to decrease the visibility of unsightly skin veins most commonly found on the legs by injecting a solution into the veins with ultra-fine needles to ‘close’ the vein.
A small pulse of high frequency electrical current is delivered via an ultra-fine needle closing the vein through heat.
