Say Goodbye to Varicose Veins
Research shows that varicose veins affect about one third of people at some point in their life.
Varicose veins can develop when the small valves inside the veins stop functioning properly. In a healthy vein, blood flows smoothly to the heart.
There are two main types of veins in your legs:
- Superficial veins – these lie under your skin and include the long and short saphenous veins
- Deep veins
When blood doesn’t flow properly from the superficial veins to your deep veins, pressure can build up and varicose veins can occur, this is due to valves in the leg or pelvic veins not working properly.
What are the symptoms of Varicose Veins?
Symptoms of varicose veins can vary from person to person. Some people don’t have any symptoms at all.
If you do have symptoms, they may include:
- Aching, heavy, uncomfortable or throbbing legs
- Itchy or restless legs
- Swollen feet and ankles
- Lumps or bulging veins
- Muscle cramp in the legs
What procedures can we offer?
At Cosmetech our Vascular Consultant Surgeon’s offer safe and effective varicose veins removal through the following procedures:
- Microsclerotherapy – treatment of leg spider veins
- Foam Sclerotherapy – treatment of varicose veins
Both varicose veins removal procedures can be carried out under local anaesthetic and most patients will be able to walk immediately afterwards and resume normal activities in 1 to 2 days.
