Large varicose veins and pigmentation treated with Radio Frequency Ablation and Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy.
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.
These varicose veins were treated with Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy at Palm Clinic who introduced this technique to New Zealand in 1997.
Palm Clinic is an affiliated provider to Southern Cross for varicose veins and a First Choice Provider for NIB. Medical necessity criteria apply.
For Southern Cross and NIB you do not need prior approval. Palm Clinic is able to authorise this online if you bring your member number. Varicose vein treatments are generally covered by other medical insurers such as Sovereign, Unimed and others when meeting 'medical necessity criteria'.
