At the Cornwall Vein Clinic, we’re dedicated to offering the newest, most innovative varicose vein treatments on the market. Our latest investment is a 1470nm laser, means patients can now enjoy a virtually pain free treatment.
Introducing our new laser
Our new 1470 nanometre laser is proven to eliminate most of the discomfort you’d experience with older laser techniques. Its longer wavelength capacity means it can specifically target cells right within the vein wall. This prevents the laser damaging the surrounding tissue, significantly reducing the pain felt during the procedure.
This innovative new laser treatment also reduces both procedure and recovery time.
A treatment choice to suit you
The addition of our new laser treatment means we are now the only clinic within the Southwest to offer all the recommended varicose vein treatments.
With such a wide choice of procedures available, patients have full control over their treatment. Of course, the type of treatment required will depend upon numerous factors including how severe the varicose veins are. The majority of patients tend to require minimally invasive techniques, though surgery may be needed for particularly large, painful and dangerous veins.
You can find out which procedures are recommended to treat your varicose veins by booking a consultation with our expert surgeons. It is advisable to read up on the different techniques and treatments prior to deciding which one is right for you.
Simple preventative measures
Of course, prevention is always better than a cure. If you have received varicose vein treatment, or you want to avoid developing them in the first place, wearing support stockings during long periods of standing up and ensuring you get plenty of exercise can help.
Overall, varicose veins are a common but highly treatable condition. The majority of the time they are harmless, but there is a possibility they could lead to more serious issues. Therefore, we recommend getting them treated as soon as possible to eliminate the risk.
