Varicose Veins should be Treated with Laser says NICE

Palm Clinic has treated over 2500 legs with varicose veins with laser. The UK is finally catching up with advice for all hospitals in England and Wales to use laser rather than surgery for varicose veins in new guidelines by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence).

Varicose Veins treated with Laser & UGS

Laser & UGS For Varicose Veins

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

Following consultation and Ultrasound examination at Palm Clinic, we assessed him to be a suitable candidate for treatment with Endovenous Ablation and Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy, which he underwent.

His symptoms were markedly improved at his three month check.  All symptoms were resolved at one year, and the swelling disappeared.

The “after” photographs were taken at twelve months post treatment.

He was delighted with the results.

Breast Reduction Post Baby 14G to 14DD

Breast Reduction One Year Post Baby

This 37 year old woman had a one year old baby and had long since stopped breast feeding but was bothered by her large breasts which were 14G cup size and causing lots of discomfort with back pain.

Liposuction immediately removed the back pain and by three months she was down to a 14DD and feeling much more comfortable.

Not having scars for a young woman is a huge benefit and by removing the weight off the breasts there is a resultant lift of the breasts as well.

She is thrilled with her new comfortable smaller breasts.

Lovehandles removed with Liposculpture

Lovehandles Removed with Liposculpture

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.

Another simple method of helping to reduce this risk, apart from drinking plenty of non-alcoholic and caffeine-free beverages and frequently getting up to walk around, is to wear compression hosiery. There is no evidence that Aspirin protects against developing a DVT.

Palm clinic offers a full range of comfortable, affordable flight socks that our experienced team will fit for you.

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".

e-Dermastamp

The NEW e-Dermastamp is the next evolution of skin needling. Manufactured by the Genuine Dermaroller™, backed by German medical engineering is the highest quality, electric, skin micro-needling device available. Dermaroller have spent an extensive amount of time perfecting this new system. In fact, the release date has been pushed back as results of comparative studies showed that fewer needles on the tip (not more) proved greater in perforation, and (unlike the competitor) resulted in no dragging, tearing or scratching.
