An American surgeon has created a fast, effective varicose vein removal treatment
Unsightly varicose veins affect many Australians and can cause loss of confidence and self-esteem. Currently, a doctor in America is pioneering a new varicose vein removal procedure, which can be performed in just one appointment! Imagine – no more bulging veins but instead smooth, sexy legs achievable in just one sitting.
The ‘Venefit’ procedure is performed under local anaesthetic, and is intrusive as the surgeon must thread a catheter through the vein so a small probe can be inserted. The probe heats up and as a result closes the vein off.
Less invasive techniques at Ashbury…
This new procedure is still being tested and we probably won’t see it hit our Australian shores for a while. Until then we at Ashbury on the Gold Coast offer two minimally invasive treatments that cater to varicose vein removal; Sclerotherapy and laser removal.
Sclerotherapy involves a technique where the vein is injected with a liquid that causes the vein to shrink and collapse, allowing reabsorption by the body. This treatment is usually recommended for more severe or larger varicose veins.
Laser removal is perfect for eliminating varicose or spider veins that are in an isolated part of the body. The laser specifically targets particular veins and by using pulses of light, will cause the veins to collapse and be reabsorbed by the body.
