Varicose Veins Affect Miss England Age 25

legsNews has revealed that Miss England Charlotte Holmes was diagnosed with varicose veins at the age of just 25. 

Varicose veins tend to be thought of as a condition associated with advancing years, affecting people from middle age onwards; the elderly, those carrying excessive body weight or else women developing them in pregnancy.

However, they can also affect younger patients and are not always associated with an unhealthy weight either.

Model Charlotte had suffered from the visible blue tracks on her legs as long as she could remember. They didn’t have the knotty bulging deformity and caused no discomfort, but still were very noticeable, causing a problem with her modelling career.

Thinking they were thread veins, Charlotte sought private treatment at which point she discovered they were varicose veins.

Ian Franklin, a consultant surgeon and the chairman of the charity Circulation Foundation, said it was good to be vigilant:

‘Often, young people whose parents have had bad varicose veins are concerned about making sure theirs don’t get to that stage.’

Her veins have now been removed using foam sclerotherapy treatment. Another option available is EVLA laser varicose vein treatment, which has approximately 95% success rate.

London Vein Treatment Centre

Cosmedics’ new Vein Treatment Centre in Putney, London offers treatment for varicose veins,  including laser, 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 who carries out an ultrasound scan completed at the same appointment for precise diagnosis without 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.
