Cosmedics Skin Clinics Release Varicose Veins Facts Infographic

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

London (PRWEB UK) 21 April 2015

Cosmedics Skin Clinics have issued a simple yet informative infographic to explain the key facts about varicose veins, presented in a bright and appealing format so that it is easy to digest and also suitable for sharing.

Varicose veins are surprisingly common, affecting up to 3 in 10 adults. However, many of those who are starting to see the first symptoms appear or even have fully developed varicose veins, may not have the full facts about what causes varicose veins.

The Varicose Vein Facts infographic illustrates and explains clearly what causes varicose veins to appear, as well as providing the most pertinent information about the problem, such as the fact that the condition is often inherited and that the varicose veins serve no real purpose and rarely get better without intervention. The Varicose Vein Facts sheet also includes a list of common symptoms and goes on to illustrated recommended treatment options, highlighting the advantages of EVLA varicose vein removal (Endovenous Laser Ablation) and the availability of treatment in the NHS vs private clinics.

Cosmedics’ founder, Medical Director and Aesthetic Doctor, Dr Ross Perry MBBS explains:

“When it comes to varicose veins, stigmas, preconceptions and myths about the problem can be unhelpful. Researching the condition online can bring up an array of medical information, but this can be quite technical, bewildering and potentially even more worrying for patients.”

“Our infographic is intended to communicate the key facts in a very approachable and easy to digest way. We aim to dispel some of the myths by clearly explaining the condition, symptoms, causes and treatment options. Presenting this information in a graphical format makes it more appealing and acceptable for patients, breaking down the medical jargon and stigma about varicose veins.”

“The format of the fact sheet is also ideal for distributing online, where many patients would naturally turn to for information about their condition. It can also be shared easily via social media or email, which enables us to reach a wider audience with our messages.”

Cosmedics’ London Vein Treatment Centre was established in summer 2014 and offers a comprehensive range of treatment for all sorts of troublesome and unsightly veins. The clinic is best known for its laser treatment of varicose veins using an advanced laser technique known as EVLA (Endovenous Laser Ablation) carried out by a top consultant vascular surgeon.

The EVLA procedure offers a series of benefits over traditional vein stripping. It is available on a walk-in walk-out basis with no need for an overnight stay. Recovery is much faster as the procedure is less invasive than traditional surgery, yet results are markedly higher with a permanent success rate of 95.4%, where traditional vein stripping has a much lower 75.7% success rate after 5 years.

While EVLA treatment is the most popular treatment option for varicose veins, the London Vein Treatment Centre also offers alternative and complementary treatments for veins, including micro-surgery for the removal of veins (phlebectomy) and foam sclerotherapy injections for smaller varicose veins.

The London Vein Treatment Centre is based at Cosmedics’ flagship clinic in Putney at 4 Disraeli Road, just off the high street. The clinic is highly convenient for patients living and working in Central and South West London and is easily accessible from Surrey with good local parking and public transport links.

Cosmedics Skin Clinics was established in 2003 and has built up an excellent reputation for cosmetic and medical treatments with mole removal and vein treatments being a particular speciality.

The company achieves high patient satisfaction ratings and have received the “Five Star Treatment Customer Service Award” after a series of excellent independent reviews.

NutriGold Supports the FDA’s Call for an Updated Nutrition Facts Label

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Orem, Utah (PRWEB) August 31, 2014

The FDA has recently proposed updates to the 20-year-old Nutrition Facts label. If adopted, the proposed changes would include more current nutrition values and serving sizes, the addition of “added sugars” on the label, and a new design. This change has the sugar industry fighting to keep “added sugars” off the label. NutriGold fully supports the new changes and believes they will help consumers make healthier food choices. “After 20 years, it’s time for a change,” said Priya Khan, Director of R&D at NutriGold Inc.

This past January, the USDA released a study showing an increase from 2007 to 2010 among consumers using the Nutrition Facts panel to make food choices. Specifically, “42% of working age adults [up from 34%] and 57% of older adults [up from 51%] reported using the Nutrition Facts panel most or all of the time when making food choices. When asked about nutrition information in restaurants, 76% of working-age adults reported that they would use the information if it were available.”

The scientific case for limiting added sugars grows stronger with time. Several scientific and health organizations have recommended cutting back and limiting our sugar consumption including the World Health Organization, the American Heart Association, and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. “Added sugars exert deleterious health effects beyond empty calories,” said Frank Hu, a researcher at Harvard Medical School. The American Diabetes Association stated, “There is great confusion in the general public between sugars added to food during processing and naturally occurring sugars…While it is true that naturally occurring sugars and added sugars have the same physiological impact, the difference is significant when considering dietary quality. Knowing how much added sugar a food or beverage contains is key in ensuring individuals are able to make dietary decisions to reduce their consumption.”

Despite this, the sugar industry asserts that including “added sugar” to the food label has no basis. A representative for the American Frozen Food Institute said, “certain aspects of the proposal lack some merit, particularly the addition of added sugar.” Andrew Briscoe, the president of the Sugar Association boldly stated, “There is no preponderance of evidence to justify an added sugar label.”

As a company pushing for accountability in the supplement industry, NutriGold is raising the bar when it comes to label transparency. For this reason, NutriGold welcomes any new improvements to the Nutrition Facts label that will assist consumers in making smarter buying decisions for their health.
