Non-Invasive Sonovein Treatment For Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are unsightly and sometimes painful, yet there have been cutting-edge advancements in varicose vein treatment called “Sonovein S”, which is now available through the Veins Doctor.

Cutting-Edge Treatment for Varicose Veins Available

Varicose veins, including spider veins, are common and can cause discomfort. Left untreated, they can lead to more serious problems. Effective treatments like Sonovein can prevent the need for serious medical intervention.

Varicose veins symptoms

In some cases, varicose veins may not cause a sufferer any noticeable pain. signs you may have varicose veins can include dark blue or purple veins that appear just under the skin on your lower legs or veins that look swollen, twisted and bulging.

Varicose veins can be painful and people can get achy legs or a feeling of heaviness, burning, itching, cramping, throbbing pain and may notice their lower legs swelling up. Sufferers can also feel their symptoms get worse when standing up or sitting down for a long time. You may also notice that your skin is becoming discoloured around a prominent vein.

How varicose veins develop

Valve damage or weakening over time can hinder the return of blood to the heart and cause pooling in the veins. Elastic vein walls and muscular contractions help pump blood to the heart. Weakened valves can cause blood to flow backwards and pool in the lower legs, leading to twisted and stretched veins.

If left untreated, varicose veins can deteriorate further and cause painful, weeping ulcers that can become infected. Large varicose veins in the leg can develop dangerous blood clots known medically as thrombophlebitis. Both can be serious conditions that will need medical attention.

What varicose vein treatments are available?

The Veins Doctor offers a wide range of quick and effective varicose vein treatments from his clinics based in London, Guilford or Bristol. You will need to book a consultation and have a Doppler-Ultrasound scan taken of your legs that will enable us to analyse the health and condition of all the major and minor veins within your legs.

Treatment options can vary according to your scan results so may include one or a combination of these options:

  • Endovenous Laser Ablation of the veins (EVLA)
  • Endovenous Microwave Ablation of the veins (EMWA)
  • High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
  • Micro-phlebectomy
  • Transluminal Occlusion Of the Perforators (TRLOP)
  • Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy and microsclerotherapy

The Veins Doctor has also introduced the latest cutting-edge option for non-invasive treatments called Sonovein S.

New varicose veins treatment, SONOVEIN S

Dr. OMAR Abu-Bakr introduces Sonovein S, a non-invasive treatment for varicose veins using High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). The treatment targets a focal point within the venous wall, causing the vein to close and die off, with the body eventually absorbing the dead tissue.

To put it in layman terms, Sonovein S treatments blast varicose veins with high energy Ultrasound waves to effectively cauterise the veins from within without the need for surgery. The treatments take mere minutes and leave patients completely scar-free and zero risk of infection. This new procedure is just one of the latest varicose vein treatment options that Dr Omar offers at his clinics.

Non-invasive treatment

The beauty of this new treatment is that it is a non-invasive procedure that can be done in the doctor’s office. 80% of the patients will not require the use of any anaesthetic at all. There is no need for surgery or the insertion of catheters into the veins, or time off for recovery post-treatment. You can have the Sonovein S treatment and go right back to your normal daily activities immediately afterwards.
