Varicose and spider veins cannot in most cases be treated under the NHS, but remain a very common problem, both cosmetically and health-wise. The discomfort, aching, tingling and cramps associated with the condition are known only too well by sufferers.
Treating the Underlying Cause
John Scurr’s philosophy is to investigate and treat the underlying cause of issues such as spider veins, and this is precisely why he pioneered the use of qualified nurse practitioners in this area. There is often more to these treatments than cosmetic value. If offending veins are treated without first seeing to any underlying cause, they will quickly return.
Spider veins are dilated veins which sit just beneath the skin’s surface. Often, they run off varicose veins and are associated with high venous pressure. In other cases, they can quite simply be related to thin skin.
Grove Beauty Clinic (http://www.grovebeautyclinic.co.uk) has also seen an upsurge in vein removal treatments. The West London clinic offers a range of treatments for spider veins, all administered by qualified medical professionals and registered nurses, so following John Scurr’s philosophy. Treatments include laser, electrolysis and microsclerotherapy. And because they are pre-empted by a consultation with a qualified professional, any underlying issues can quickly be identified and any higher level medical or surgical procedures deemed necessary can be recommended, so that the underlying cause can be dealt with, for better long term results.
Microsclerotherapy is a simple yet highly effective technique for removing spider veins. It involves injecting a solution into a vein via a very fine needle. The solution expels blood from the vein, which gives the impression of the vein disappearing. The solution sticks to the wall of the vein so that blood cannot return, and eventually the vein is expelled by the body’s natural defences. Results are usually instant, although sometimes a course of treatments is required. Recovery is rapid in comparison to other traditional treatments, especially surgery or laser treatment.
Grove Beauty Clinic is located in Ealing, West London and serves clients across London and all surrounding areas. To book a consultation with their resident consultant microsclerotherapist, telephone 020 8579 2010 or email: email@example.com.
