Are you suffering a loss of self-esteem due to your varicose veins? Would you like to feel more confident and more comfortable in skirts, shorts and dresses? It isn’t at all uncommon for women with varicose veins to experience a loss of self-confidence and self-esteem (not to mention feel like you’re the only woman in the world with them). With a variety of safe and effective varicose vein treatments available there’s no need to worry about a future in which you’ve resigned yourself to wearing jeans, pants and leggings throughout summer.

Like other vein conditions that we no longer need to suffer, such as spider veins, varicose veins can be treated with safe and proven techniques that cause minimal discomfort and can restore your confidence in a big way. If you don’t want to rely on body makeup to overcome the negative emotions and state of mind associated with having varicose veins, feel more confident wearing what you want to wear, and feel better about yourself, help is at hand in the form of the effective varicose vein treatments we offer at Vein Care in Melbourne.


Less Downtime with Endovenous Laser Treatment (Evlt)

Highly effective and less painful than other varicose vein treatments, endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) is a top choice for women looking for a proven medical solution with minimal downtime. This technique boasts one of the highest success rates for varicose vein treatment (90% over a 3-5-year period) and as it’s performed under local anaesthetic, there’s minimal discomfort experienced by the patient. Treatments are fast and efficient at around 1.5 hours.


Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy for Serious Varicose Vein Cases

For women suffering from serious cases of varicose veins and are looking for a simple solution with a wealth of benefits, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy (UGS) is likely to be the best option. This is a non-intrusive (non-surgical) varicose vein treatment procedure that provides excellent effectiveness with minimal discomfort, a quick and easy treatment process so you won’t have to take time off from work or miss out on important events, and also reduces the need for follow-up appointments. The main point of difference between ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and sclerotherapy is the use of ultrasound to provide a highly accurate map of the treatment area.


Remove Bulging Veins with Ambulatory Phlebectomy

If you’re suffering from bulging varicose veins, your doctor may recommend combining endovenous laser treatment or ultrasound guided sclerotherapy with ambulatory phlebectomy. As this is a surgical procedure, ambulatory phlebectomy isn’t recommended for everyone and the recovery process is longer than the other methods discussed in this article. However, if you suffer from visibly protruding varicose veins or are at risk of venous diseases such as leg ulcers, this may be the most suitable treatment.
