Varicose veins can be unsightly and painful but revolutionary treatment is offering relief for people suffering from Varicose veins. The problem is experienced by many people and these veins can look ugly, can be painful and they can appear without warning.

Fortunately they can be eradicated with the right treatment. The treatment that we offer to eradicate the problem is quick, safe, and effective without the risk of any nerve damage on the affected area.

 

Treatment of Varicose Veins is not only done to relieve discomfort of the leg and to improve cosmetic appearance of the skin but the treatment is also needed to combat Thrombophlebitis (swelling of the skin). Although this is not dangerous it can become discomforting and painful. It must also be remembered that people with Thrombophlebitis can also have increased incidents of deep vein thrombosis. These essentially are blood clots that can potentially prove fatal if they travel up to your heart and also into the lungs ultimately causing death.

 

The treatments for Varicose Veins have evolved drastically over time. In previous years a typical treatment would have involved stripping the actual veins through an operation. This operation was very discomforting and also disabling the patient for three weeks so. Add to that the misery of hospitalisation, the risks of general anaesthetics and the long recovery period made this procedure not so attractive for many people.

 

However, more recently the treatment for Varicose Veins has improved significantly. The patient can be treated in as quick as an hour and free to go home without having to stay in the hospital and without having to endure long recovery period. Moreover, the treatment is also painless and a majority of the time patients do not feel any discomfort at all. There is no form of disability for the patient. It is also important to remember that in previous years when veins were stripped in an operation there was usually a 50% recurrence rate of the problem. This has now been significantly reduced with the new treatments on offer. Previously there was also the risk of infections, bleeding and nerve damage which is still being treated with the modern methods.
