Lycahealth Orpington: Want to be free of varicose veins quickly and effectively?

Sponsored Editorial

Lycahealth Orpington, close to Sevenoaks Way, has launched a new service for the effective treatment of varicose veins.

It is estimated that around 20% of all adults will get varicose veins at some point in their life. The levels of severity can vary from unsightly veins (considered cosmetic) through to very painful, uncomfortable veins. Severe varicose veins can cause serious swelling which can make normal activities like walking, standing and working difficult.


There are several factors that can increase the risk of developing varicose veins, including:

- Being female
- Having a close family member with varicose veins
- Being older in age
- Being overweight
- Being pregnant
- Having a job that requires you to stand for long periods of time

LycaHealth Orpington provides a privately funded solution for those looking to treat their varicose veins quickly and effectively. Varicose veins can be treated in various ways, including Endovenous Laser Ablation Therapy, commonly known as EVLT.

Unlike traditional methods of treatment such as stripping which removes the veins, EVLT is a minimally invasive technique which treats the vein directly using a laser fibre inserted directly into a vein. These small lasers are located at the end of a catheter and heat the walls of veins to close them and stop blood from flowing through them.


This allows the blood to flow more efficiently as there are no faulty veins. EVLT is a less painful method of treating varicose veins and typically has faster recovery times.

When considering EVLT as a treatment option for varicose veins, the first step is to book a consultation with a vascular specialist who can carry out an examination and determine the right treatment plan.
