Laser Vein Removal Claims

Laser Vein Removal Popular in the UK But Negligence Compensation Claims on the Increase

Laser vein removal is used for two different forms of veins; varicose and spider veins. While varicose veins affect women, spider veins can affect both men and women. With varicose veins, endovenous (inside the vein) laser energy is used to heat the vein in order to destroy it while simple laser vein treatment is used for spider veins.

For the most part laser vein removal procedures performed in the UK complete without any problems but there are now more and more instances where laser vein removal has gone wrong. If a bad laser vein removal treatment results from cosmetic surgery negligence then a successful laser vein removal claim for financial compensation can be made on your behalf.

Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors is the first law firm in England and Wales established solely for victims of negligent cosmetic surgery. Call us today on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from one of our dedicated Cosmetic Claims team to make a claim for compensation.

Laser Removal Still Popular in the UK

Varicose veins are swollen veins that can be dark blue or purple in colour and develop when blood doesn’t flow properly through the veins in the legs. They appear as people age or with pregnancy and may cause a burning sensation or extreme itching in a person’s legs.

Spider veins are small varicose veins and again normally appear due to pregnancy, weight fluctuation or ageing. They are formed when superficial veins near the skin’s surface leak tiny amounts of blood. While spider veins occur mostly on the legs, they can also appear on the face.

Laser vein removal treatments have become popular in the UK in recent years but despite this rise in popularity, laser vein removal negligence claims have also risen. If you’ve recently had a laser vein removal procedure that’s left you unhappy then you could receive considerable financial compensation.

Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors are the leading UK cosmetic surgery law firm in dealing with cosmetic surgery claims. Having a success rate of over 95% of all cosmetic surgery claims cases pursued after obtaining medical evidence, we know exactly what can go wrong with negligent laser vein removal. That is why Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors have successfully recovered over £2.5 million in cosmetic surgery compensation for the victims of cosmetic surgery negligence.

The Laser Vein Removal Procedure

For the two types of vein taken away in laser vein removal, there are two types of procedure,  endovenous laser treatment, sometimes known as ELT, for varicose veins and simple laser treatment for spider veins.

Under local anaesthesia, during an endovenous laser treatment the cosmetic surgeon passes a laser fibre through a catheter into the varicose vein which has been marked before surgery by the surgeon using an ultrasound scan. This type of laser vein removal works by sending very strong bursts of laser light inside the vein to produce intense heat that damages the vein and causes it to close.

Simple laser vein treatment is done on the outside of the patient’s skin with an intense beam of light directed at the spider vein and destroying it through the skin. This is sometimes a second treatment step, after a larger varicose vein has been treated with the endovenous laser vein treatment.

Unfortunately for both types of laser vein removal procedures, Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors have experienced an increased number of cases where a negligent laser vein removal treatment has left a patient in considerable distress.
