What are Varicose Veins ?
If you suffer from varicose veins, you are probably aware of bulging blue veins in your legs. You may also notice that your legs are painful , that they throb and are perhaps a bit swollen.
Why have I developed Varicose Veins?
People with varicose veins often talk of close family members having similar problems. However, sometimes varicose veins seem to occur as a result of injury in the context of physical sports like football or activities where heavyweights are being lifted eg bodybuilding.
Other things that increase your risk of developing varicose veins include:
- poor circulation in the lower legs
- being female
- being overweight
- being in an older age group
- going through multiple pregnancies
- employment requiring prolonged standing
Varicose veins can also sometimes be an early sign of more serious circulation issues in the veins. Leg swelling, skin changes and pigmentation, bleeding, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and ulcerations are associated with untreated varicose veins.
"Crucially she listened to my concerns and was able to be open and honest about what we could achieve"
Really happy with my initial consultation with Regina. Regina not only took me through the whole process step by step but crucially she listened to my concerns and was able to be open and honest about what we could achieve with my hair density.
How it works
Get a detailed assessment of your problem veins and let our experts come up with a personalised treatment plan
Our initial thread vein consultations include:
- a detailed examination of your legs
- finding out whether there is a family history of similar problems
- carrying out an ultrasound scan which will reveal the nature and extent of the varicose veins
Once the assessment has been completed, your Consultant will explain what treatment options are best for you, what results you can expect to see and how long the process is likely to take.
Most patients need to have two treatment sessions carried out over 6-8 weeks . Occasionally a client will require a further follow-up appointment . This is most likely where there are extensive and/or tortuous varicose and thread Veins.
Our expert team are on hand to advise you on the best vein treatment to suit your needs.
Interventional procedures performed by consultant vein specialists at HHC Vein Clinic’s are designed to restore proper venous blood flow and eliminate varicose and spider veins from venous circulation in a safe, efficient and cost-effective manner.
The best treatment for you will depend on a number of things:
- Type of vein abnormality (spider or varicose vein)
- Size (how large they are in diameter)
- Source and location of veins involved (for legs it can be thigh, ankle or behind the knee. Abnormal veins can even appear on the hands, face, breasts, back, and genital areas)
- Severity or concentration of veins
- Skin texture & colour
All of the above is determined by thorough history taking, clinical examination and US duplex assessment. Each patient being seen and assessed at HHC Vein Clinic will have a 3 step treatment strategy:
- Initial Consultation including Duplex US scan
- Main treatment episode to treat the underlying cause
- Follow up appointment, usually to complete the treatment and attain the desired cosmetic result
Depending on the type and extent of your problem veins, you will probably need at least two types of treatments. At HHC Vein Clinics our main goal in treating varicose veins in the legs is for symptomatic relief and improving cosmetic appearance.
HCC Clinics are able to offer the most up-to-date and medically recommended treatments for varicose veins and thread veins.
