Varicose and spider veins actually represent abnormally dilated superficial veins that become visible and are usually located on the legs. These vascular dilatations that appear immediately under the skin can be red, blue or purple and although connected to the profound venous system, they do not represent an essential part of it. Nevertheless, left untreated, varicose veins have the tendency to develop until causing pus, discomfort and a heavy sensation in the inferior limbs; it’s not the case of spider veins which are of small dimensions and do not create any clinical problems whatsoever, only cosmetic ones.

There are various treatments against leg varicose veins such as sclerotherapy but Renew Skin & Health Clinic comes to your attention with a safe and revolutionary alternative solution of varicose and spider veins removal achieved with minimal discomfort with the help of the Nd:Yag laser technology.

Traditional scleropathy is a non-surgical but invasive procedure that implies the injection of a sclerotic agent in the dilated veins that need to be removed, causing their closure and sclerosis. This type of procedure may cause discomfort or great pain during and after the removal. In exchange, the sclerotherapy laser treatment supervised by the Renew Skin & Health Clinic specialists is a non-invasive, painless and highly efficient procedure that has been ensuring until the present day the optimum results our patients desire.

The Nd:Yag laser treatment is part of a series of skin treatments performed at Renew Skin & Health Clinic in Leamington Spa that do not require actual surgery. The laser device generates a wavelength that penetrates the skin until the varicose veins or the spider veins determining their coagulation. The principle is a quite simple one: the energy generated by the Nd:Yag laser turns into heat at the impact with the hemoglobin, causing the blood vessel’s collapse which is afterwards reabsorbed within the body, the varicose veins fading and disappearing in a few weeks’ time. The advanced Nd:Yag technology ensures an efficient treatment against spider veins and allows the removal of varicose veins on the legs by distributing precise energy doses in the well-defined damaged areas by these venous dilatations.

The specialist doctor at Renew Skin & Health Clinic handling your case will firstly examine your medical history in order to determine the cause of the disorder and to rule out a possible venous pathology. Further, the severity of the condition and the skin type will be determined and an appropriate, individualised treatment will be recommended. The procedure is quick lasting between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the number of varicose veins to be treated and their depth and size. Positive evolution is usually noticed after the first session, however, 3 up to 6 sessions, repeated at 4-6 weeks are generally recommended.

The benefits of the Nd:Yag varicose and spider veins removal laser treatment are multiple and obvious. First of all, as mentioned before, the laser device allows a greater precision when operating upon the veins without bringing any damage to the adjacent tissues. The technique is fast, efficient, non-invasive and non-chemical. Moreover, this procedure is entirely painless, the affected skin areas being previously treated with a cryogenic spray to ensure maximum comfort for our patients. Furthermore, the laser application is recommended for any type of skin and side effects such as redness or minor swelling are minimized.

Renew Skin & Health Clinic is at your disposal with such a treatment if you’re dealing with the unaesthetic problem of varicose veins and spider veins and also invites the patients in Leicester and Birmingham to benefit from the quality services and our specialists’ experience in Leamington Spa.
