Stratum Dermatology Clinics Cheltenham are now offering treatment for varicose veins for patients in Gloucestershire and the surrounding areas. Varicose veins are swollen, enlarged veins, often seen in the legs and feet, which appear lumpy, twisted and are blue or dark purple in colour. Varicose veins result from problems with the drainage of blood where values in our veins don’t close properly, causing blood to flow back into the legs and pools in the veins which then become distended due to increased pressure. These veins aren’t only visible, but also painful as symptoms include tired, heavy, throbbing legs and swollen feet and ankles. The skin around the affected vein may be dry and itchy and muscle cramp is common, particularly at night.
We offer a variety of varicose veins treatment in our Cheltenham clinic, including:
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution, often foam, directly into the affected vein. This solution reacts with the vein wall, causing the vein to inflame and scar, forcing blood away to healthier veins. This eventually closes off the vein and the collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades.
Phlebectomy, which is also known as stab avulsion, microphlebectomy or ambulatory phlebectomy, is a technique used to remove varicose veins. In this procedure, 1 or 2 tiny cuts are made in the skin, the affected vein is identified, cut and removed through the incisions using a suction device.
The ELVeS Radial™ Laser procedure
This treatment works by a probe being inserted into the affected vein through a small puncture site. The probe is then used to direct a laser light into the vein using targeted radial emission and the laser seals the vein.
