New London Varicose Vein Treatment Centre
Cosmedics Skin Clinics have opened a dedicated Vein Treatment Centre based in South West London, offering treatment for varicose veins, thread veins and spider veins with the latest technology and a full range of treatment options.
The treatment of varicose veins is expected to be particularly popular. Varicose veins affect an estimated 3 out of 10 adults, causing considerable distress. Not only is their appearance very unattractive, they can also be very uncomfortable, painful and make the legs feel ‘heavy’. They can also cause swelling in the ankles and itchy skin or ‘varicose eczema’.
The NHS is no longer able to provide varicose vein removal apart from a very few cases. What’s more, their technique of ‘stripping’ had a high failure rate (50%) and painful long recovery.
Laser Varicose Vein Treatment
The new laser varicose vein removal treatment has a 95% or more success rate and a very short recovery, so that patients are able to be treated on a walk in, walk out basis, returning home on the same day.
Laser Varicose Vein Removal is also known as EVLA or Endovenous Laser Ablation Treatment.
The technique involves inserting a tiny catheter or needle into the vein so that laser energy can be used to heat the vessel and destroy it. This must be accompanied by removal of the bulging vein itself, a procedure known as phlebectomy.
This treatment is not available on the NHS and can be expensive in private clinics.
However, Cosmedics are keen to make the service affordable and therefore offer treatment from £1,550 per leg. Discounted prices are available when both legs and/or multiple veins need to be treated.
Cosmedics have a partnership with a top vascular surgeon, who attends the South West London Vein Treatment Centre on a regular basis.
Vein Treatment Options
In addition to Laser Varicose Vein Removal, Cosmedics’ Vein Treatment Centre also offers treatment for smaller varicose veins, thread veins and spider veins with a choice of foam sclerotherapy, microsclerotherapy and micro surgery /phlebectomy.
Veins are very varied, so by offering a wide array of treatment solutions, patients can be confident of getting the right result.
The right treatment programme is determined at a private consultation with a top vascular surgeon.
Vein Removal Consultation
The initial consultation includes an ultrasound scan completed at the same appointment and avoiding the need for time consuming referrals and separate appointments.
Varicose Vein treatment and consultations are only available at Cosmedics’ Vein Treatment Centre in Putney, South West London.
Microsclerotherapy and laser treatment for smaller thread veins and spider veins are available at all of Cosmedics’ Skin Clinics.
