Leg Vein Treatment Overview


    Up to 30 minutes




    You can resume normal activities immediately but are advised to wear a compression garment for first 2 weeks


    The results are permanent


    The destroyed veins are absorbed by the body so should fade over the new few weeks


    Some veins respond to just one treatment while others may require two sessions

What Are Varicose Veins?

Leg veins, also known as varicose, spider and thread veins are incredibly common and can be unsightly and often produce a dull aching of the legs after prolonged standing. These enlarged veins lie close to the surface of the skin, enabling clear visibility.

If their presence distresses you, Wimpole Aesthetics can treat them by injecting a solution that will make them disappear or at least become much smaller.

Dilated blood vessels have a red or blue or purple colour and appear on the surface of the body, particularly the legs. On the face and upper body their character is slightly different to those on the lower body, as are their causes

We don’t know the reason for the dilation of some leg veins like this, but it often appears to be inherited in families.

Surface veins occur in both men and women, but much more frequently in women. The hormone oestrogen may play a role in their development. They may also occur after a blow to a certain area of the body or as a result of wearing tight girdles or hosiery held up by tight bands.

There is no proven method of preventing leg veins. Wearing support stockings may prevent some dilated blood vessels from developing in some people and maintaining a normal weight and regular exercise may also be helpful.

The Procedure

Our London clinic uses a procedure called sclerotherapy to treat these blood vessels during the varicose vein treatment. We inject a solution called a sclerosant directly into the blood vessel using a very fine needle. Doctors have used this procedure in various forms for veins since the 1920s.

What does the treatment for varicose veins involve?

The injected solution irritates the lining of the vessels in the damaged veins, causing it to swell and stick together. Some vessels will fade from view, eventually becoming barely or not at all visible. 

A few vessels will need a second treatment, and a few will not be accessible for injection at any given treatment session because they will have been covered by the tape used to pressurise other veins treated during that session.

Depending on its size, a single blood vessel may have to be injected more than once, but in any one treatment session a number of vessels may be injected. The body safely absorbs the affected veins.

What happens after? Are there any side effects?

After your varicose vein removal treatment, you’ll need to wear a support or pressure garment for around two weeks. Neglecting this step could undermine the treatment’s effectiveness. 

Additionally, it’s important to engage in regular walking post-treatment, as it helps in draining the treated leg veins and those around them.

How long do the results last?

The results are permanent. Veins treated with sclerotherapy won’t come back unless they were really big to start with. However, the procedure doesn’t fix the weakness in the vein walls, so new veins might still appear as often as they did before the treatment.

How Much Does The Treatment Cost?

Our London clinic charges £150 for the first consultation and a price range of £200 to £400 for the first treatment. The subsequent treatments have a price range of £200 to £400

You can buy medical compression hosiery at one of the pharmacy located close to the clinic or online.

What Does Getting Started With Us Look Like?

If you’ve been considering an aesthetic treatment to rejuvenate your skin or reshape your body, then the first step is to get in touch with the clinic to arrange a consultation with our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz or one of his team, depending on your requirements.

Call us on 0207 224 2247 or email us on info@wimpoleaesthetics.co.uk to arrange your consultation.

The consultation is an essential part of the patient journey as it gives us the opportunity to discuss your objectives and the outcome you’re hoping to achieve. We will talk you through the procedure or treatment plan, clearly explain any possible risks and the results you can expect, as well as answer all of your questions.

Procedures at Wimpole Aesthetics are carried out under the direction of our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz and his team. We aim to deliver practical, safe and effective medical aesthetic alternatives to cosmetic surgery whilst always respecting a patient’s privacy, dignity and confidentiality.

Our care and support continues after you leave the clinic. You are provided with comprehensive aftercare advice appropriate to the treatment you have received and we welcome patients getting in touch if they have any questions regarding their experience and results.

At Wimpole Aesthetics, our team of proficient cosmetic physicians and dedicated support staff is deeply committed to ensuring your utmost satisfaction throughout your journey with us. 

Under the guidance of Dr. Joshua Berkowitz, our experienced team provides a wide array of expert treatments while prioritising a patient-centric approach.

Our Doctors

Dr Josh Berkowitz - Medical Doctor

As the Founder and Medical Director of our establishment, Dr. Joshua Berkowitz takes a hands-on approach in personally supervising the training of our nursing support staff and aestheticians.

Dr Natalie Hammer

Dr. Natalie Hammer, an Aesthetic Medicine Practitioner hailing from the United States, holds GMC registration as a doctor with 14 years of extensive medical experience, including 8 years dedicated to the field of aesthetics.

Most of the side effects are minor and confined to the area which has been treated. Your doctor will give you a more detailed explanation of all possible side effects before the commencement of your treatment.
The veins treated adequately by sclerotherapy will not reoccur, unless they are extremely large before treatment. However, the underlying weakness in the vein walls is not corrected, and therefore new vessels will possibly continue to appear at the same rate as before treatment.
Generally, you will be required to wear some form of support or pressure garment for a period of time, usually two weeks. Failure to do this may compromise the effectiveness of the treatment, so the inconvenience of a compression garment should be factored in to the timing of your appointment. You should also be able to do regular walking after your treatment, as this promotes the emptying of the leg veins, including the ones treated.
Initial consultation £100
First treatment costs £200 – £400
Each subsequent treatment £200 – £300
1 pair of medical compression hosiery is included in the treatment cost. Further pairs may be purchased from us if desired.

What our patients say

Natalie and Dr Josh have been incredible in boosting my confidence and my skin! They truly listen and deliver 100% natural results every time. Natalie is completely honest, professional, has integrity and that’s why I trust her fully. Wimpole clinic have a much greater range of cutting edge treatments beyond anti wrinkle treatment that have resulted in my skin improving with age. It’s mad but true. They always assess what is right for my face and my skin on the day and advise according to what my skin needs. I’ve been going to Wimpole Aesthetics for years now, initially drawn to their incredible IV boosts but am now unable to ever turn back. Class, quality and aesthetic results that are truly worth it!!!

I have been living with scarring above my upper lip, as a result of electrolysis treatment 25 years ago, in the form of a deep vertical line and small indentations in the skin. I sought help from Wimpole Aesthetics, and from the moment that I entered the small, personal clinic I was totally put at ease and welcomed by the extremely professional and friendly team. I received a course of Mesotherapy and Dermapen treatment and am absolutely delighted with the results. I had almost given up on ever having smooth line-free skin above my upper lip again. I highly recommend letting Wimpole Aesthetics take care of you.

Having lived in Australia for over 10 years, my skin had suffered mild sun-damage and had developed a lot of discolouration on my face in particular. Also, as I approached the age of 40, I noticed a lot of wrinkles appearing! I decided to have Microdermabrasion treatment and the improvements after just 3 treatments were extremely encouraging. I have booked a further 2 treatments in coming months and I am so excited about seeing further benefits to the look and texture of my skin.
