Laser & UGS For Varicose Veins

Varicose Veins treated with Laser & UGS

These are the before and after treatment photographs of an active 36 year old man. He first noticed varicose veins aged 17, but they had become much worse in the previous five years. His symptoms were of aching and pain in both legs, but worse in his right leg and foot. There was swelling in both lower legs, ankles and feet.

Lovehandles Removed with Liposculpture

Lovehandles removed with liposuction

Despite having been a very fit man all his life he has always had lovehandles which have made wearing lower fit trousers a problem as the lovehandles spilled over the top.

Liposculpture has taken away the excess fat in this area and he is now feeling much better about himself.

Long haul flights and the risk of a DVT (Deep vein thrombosis/clot)

While not common (up to 10% in some reported studies), long haul flights ie. those over four hours, can increase any individual’s risk of developing a DVT. This is particularly so if someone is over 60 years of age, has significant medical problems, is pregnant, is using oestrogen containing medications or has varicose vein disease.

Venous Leg Ulcers

Venous Leg Ulcers

Patients coming to Palm Clinic regarding their varicose veins are often concerned that they may develop a venous leg ulcer.

They recall an older relative "who used to have awful legs with ulcers, and I do not want that".
