Extended periods of standing, obesity, hereditary factors and hormonal changes can play a role in causing varicose and spider veins in the legs. Although developing more often in women than in men, vein problems increase in frequency as one ages and can cause painful symptoms. If left untreated, it can eventually lead to blood clots, skin pigmentation and swelling.
Using laser treatment, Dr Roy Chio can reduce and eliminate varicose and spider veins, which not only improves your aesthetic appearance but also benefits your health. No anaesthesia is required for our laser treatment, therefore lowering the risk of side effects. The number of treatments with Dr Chio will depend on the amount and severity of the veins, and patients can expect their veins to take several days to a month to disappear.
