Our Professional Services
Our professional clinic offers a wide range of the most innovative and effective treatments available for the treatment of all venous conditions, including spider vein treatment, and varicose vein treatment. Below is a brief overview of the most common treatments offered for a range of different conditions:
- Microphlebectomy – microphlebectomy is a common treatment for varicose veins for either medical or cosmetic procedures. Several incisions are made, through which the diseased vein is removed. The procedure involves a local or tumescent anesthesia, and a compression sock is worn for one week.
- Sclerotherapy – sclerotherapy is a quick and simple solution to varicose veins, taking less than an hour in total. A sclerosant solution is injected into the vein, shrinking it, and eventually allowing it to be absorbed into the bloodstream.
- Radiofrequency Ablation – veins are heated so as to seal the incompetent veins and redirect the blood flow to healthy veins. This advance allows for shorter recovery times than traditional methods.
Varicose Vein Causes
Though the development of varicose veins are common in both men and women, there are some major contributing factors:
Weight Gain – gaining weight is one of the main factors leading to the development of venous conditions; women going through pregnancy are also prone to develop varicose veins.
Older Age – as we get older varicose veins develop naturally simply due to long-term strain. Hormonal changes also play a considerable role.
Lack of Activity – whether you exercise too little, or if you spend prolonged periods sitting or standing without moving around then you are at a higher risk of developing varicose veins.
