Considering Sclerotherapy OR Non-Surgical Treatment for Varicose Veins? We Can Help…
Leg veins can be unsightly and in Queensland’s long hot summers they cause more discomfort by making sufferers unwilling to wear shorts or skirts. It is important to understand that leg veins are a medical issue as well. They tend to worsen with age, often ache and can end up causing circulation problems, swelling and ulcers. Early treatment prevents veins worsening and more expensive treatment being required at a later stage.
Smaller veins and spider veins are best treated with standard sclerotherapy. Modern techniques and solutions make this an effective and safe treatment. Most patients find the discomfort quite bearable and the introduction of Penthrox inhaled anaesthesia promises to make it pain-free for all. Unfortunately lasers cannot effectively treat leg veins and can be painful and hazardous.
Dr Christopher Leat at Envisage Cosmetic has performed sclerotherapy and UGS on many hundreds of patients. He offers all patients a free or bulk billed consultation and ultrasound. Colour duplex ultrasound is available onsite.
