Report Forecasts Growth of Varicose Veins Treatments

Varicose Vein Treatment Market:

By Product (Radiofrequency Ablation Devices, Laser Ablation Devices, Others); By Treatment (Sclerotherapy, Endovenous Ablation, Others) & By Region (Europe, North America, Asia-Pacific, RoW)-Forecast (2016-2022)

A new report forecasts global growth of varicose vein treatments, with a variety of underlying drivers:

  • Global development of advanced and progressively less-invasive treatment procedures
  • Rise in the awareness among people regarding diseases
  • Increasing government initiatives across the globe
  • Growing incidence of varicose veins
  • Reduced trauma
  • Greater exposure to the site of application
  • High operative success rates
  • Faster blood flow restoration

Among all the varicose vein treatments, sclerotherapy along with ultrasound had the highest market share. These offer non-invasive treatment for unwanted veins without incision and with reduced scarring.

However, the report does highlight that the potential growth of the market is limited by lack of skilled vascular surgeons and the cost of varicose vein treatments.

UK Varicose Vein Treatments

In the UK, EVLA is viewed as the gold-standards solution for varicose veins. EVLA stands for Endovenous Laser Ablation and the procedure uses laser to heat and damage difficult varicose veins so that they are destroyed.

Due to stringent NHS criteria for treating varicose veins and a tendency to offer traditional vein stripping rather than laser treatment, EVLA is more generally available for private patients.

At clinics such as Cosmedics’ London Vein Treatment Centre, EVLA is carried out on a day case basis and uses local anaesthetic. Recovery is very quick and patients are able to walk unaided to return home. There is no need for an overnight stay and patients can return to normal activities much faster.
