We understand that varicose veins and venous ulcers can be embarrassing and negatively impact personal confidence and quality of life, that’s why we’re so passionate about finding a solution that is both comfortable and works for you!
Recently Channel 9 News featured a news story on the clinic and how our ELA treatment had helped a patient’s venous ulcers completely heal. This patient had been plagued by venous ulcers for two decades and had suffered discomfort around the sores. Luckily he was able to consult with one of our medical professionals and get the treatment he had been waiting so long for. If you’ve got uncomfortable or unsightly veins or ulcers on your legs stop putting it off and get them treated today!
Varicose veins are found in the leg. They are the veins that pump blood to the heart and these can fail due to the valves in the veins becoming incompetent. These veins can become raised and bulgy causing self-confidence issues. Not only are there emotional effects but varicose veins can become achy and throb painfully.
Venus ulcers are also referred to as varicose ulcers and stasis ulcers. They appear as red, sometimes blistery wounds on the skin and are considered chronic wounds. They occur due to extra pressure from the varicose veins leading to poor skin nutrition and a breakdown in the skin around the ankle.
We have a number of innovative and modern treatments which are used to treat both varicose veins and venous ulcers. Our main procedure used to treat these problems is Endovenous Laser Ablation (ELA). We have achieved great success with ELA treatment, with almost 100% of patients getting the desired results.
A small laser fibre will be inserted into the incompetent vein so that the laser can be activated. As the laser fibre withdraws, the vein is caused to thermally ablate and close. It will then be absorbed naturally by the body in a comfortable way.
Local anaesthetic during the procedure allows you to remain awake while only feeling minor discomfort. Another positive of this innovative treatment is that your normal everyday routine can be resumed almost straight away while your leg is compressed with a compression stocking. Athletic and strenuous activity is only restricted for a short amount of time, after which you can put on your gym shorts and return to your normal exercise regime with flawless, smooth legs!
