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.
