Palm Clinic introduced Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy to New Zealand in 1998 as the first non surgical method of treating varicose veins and added laser treatment (EVLA) in 2003. We have now performed over 3000 laser treatments for varicose veins and over ten thousand UGS injection treatments for varicose veins. A few people may need varicose vein surgery.
Spider veins are generally treated with an injection technique called microsclerotherapy or with Exotherme laser. Facial veins are treated with Elos intense pulsed light.
Varicose eczema and varicose ulcers are treated by treating the underlying problem which is venous insufficiency usually presenting as varicose veins with dry scaly itchy skin or ulcers.
