About minimally invasive options for vein treatment.
About varicose veins treatment
At the Perth Vein Clinic we offer a range of minimally invasive procedures. Based on the latest research, and on our own experience at the clinic, we are confident to say that vein experts around the world now consider the non-surgical and minimally invasive options as safe, reliable and widely recognised alternatives to traditional vein surgery.
With that also comes an improvement in patient comfort, because of the techniques that we use.
So…will treatment of varicose veins hurt?
As vein specialists, we don’t want to promise you a procedure that totally eliminates even the slightest level of discomfort, as you will understand. But most patients compare this discomfort level to what they feel when they go for a blood test. When asked about a level on a scale between 1 and 10, most of our Perth patients will label the discomfort somewhere between pain levels 1 and 3. So, will the treatment of varicose veins hurt? The answer is that the discomfort level is often lower than the one associated with simple dental procedures such as getting a new filling.
Dr Luke Matar, principal vein specialist at the Perth Vein Clinic, has had many of the available treatments himself: laser treatment for veins, foam sclerotherapy and phlebectomy. At our state-of-the-art clinic in Subiaco, we offer a wide range of non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins. And because we offer the widest range of treatment options in Western Australia, we build on our vast experience and on the ongoing study and research in the area of vein treatments around the world.
Minimally invasive treatment or vein surgery?
The questions we get (such as the question whether the vein treatment will hurt) come from an era where traditional vein surgery or vein stripping was the most widely used treatment for bulging veins. With the recent innovations in vein treatments, the non-surgical options and the minimally invasive treatments have taken a more prominent place. So getting your veins fixed is a far more gentle and effective process than it used to be in the past, with average treatment duration for one session between 20 and 60 minutes.
Why come to Vein Clinic Perth?
At Vein Clinic Perth Dr Luke Matar always starts with a thorough diagnosis. The visible swollen veins at the surface often indicate an important underlying venous condition that needs attention. By giving you a detailed clinical assessment, we make sure you can make a well informed decision about the most appropriate treatment option.
Our Perth patients tell us that the minor discomfort of their vein treatment comes with peace-of-mind in regards to their overall health. If left untreated, varicose veins and the underlying venous reflux may increase the risks of other more serious vein conditions such as Deep Vein Thrombosis in the deep veins of the legs.
