You are not vain for worrying about your veins!
To quote Jon Snow from the television series Game of Thrones: “Winter is coming”! Despite it bringing the mini-apocolypse-type storms experienced in Cape Town recently, it also provides the perfect opportunity to treat body concerns such as varicose veins.
Nobody except vampires and healthcare professionals are excited by blue, bulging, visible veins. People may comment that you are “vain” for worrying about your “veins”, but we have heard many patients in our clinics lament bitterly that this issue goes so far as to affect their daily clothing choices, not to mention their self-esteem.
Thankfully, we are here to help and we offer only the most well researched and modern therapies to remedy those wayward veins:
- Sclerotherapy injections are more suited for varicose and medium-sized veins.
- Smaller thread-like veins can be targeted by the industry gold-standard, the long pulsed Nd: Yag laser.
- We also include Carboxytherapy as part of the treatment plan to aid lymphatic drainage and to improve circulation.
Pop into Body Renewal for a holistic assessment with one of our doctors where we will assess any health related issues contributing to your varicose veins, and put together a suitable treatment plan to leave you vein free. This will then allow you to include shorts and mini-skirts when you prepare for your new Summer wardrobe.
