Most people with varicose veins seek treatment for cosmetic reasons, but this is far from the only way they could affect your life. Left untreated this chronic condition can progress and cause various health concerns such as blood clots, eczema and ulcers.
For some time, surgery was the best vein treatment option which deterred many patients due to its intensity and long recovery time. Now, advancements in varicose vein removal have allowed us to provide minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment options so that you can free yourself of the difficulties related to this common condition. Our clinic in Warragul is led by vein disease specialist Dr Ganesha Param and is easily accessible by residents of Gippsland, including Traralgon and Moe.
Varicose veins are characterised by bulging veins, most often in the legs or feet. They occur when tiny valves in your veins become damaged which causes blood to pool in the vein and create the swollen appearance under the skin. They can be blue, green or skin-coloured and other symptoms include; aching legs, skin rashes and swollen ankles.
A common misconception is that only women present with varicose veins but in reality, both men and women can develop the condition. Risk factors include standing for long periods of time, pregnancy, female hormones, obesity, and genetics. If you notice signs of varicose veins it is advisable to seek treatment as soon as possible as early intervention can lower your risk of reoccurrence.
