A 35-year-old woman visited our clinic with varicose veins in her right calf. She had noticed these veins during her first pregnancy, and they started affecting her daily life, making her uncomfortable by the end of the day.
Her discomfort was linked to long hours of standing, worsening her symptoms, and finding relief only through elevating her leg. These were clear signs of varicose veins, causing not only physical discomfort but also taking a toll on her emotional well-being and eroding her self-confidence.
Veins Treatment Procedure
With her approval, we began with a Duplex Ultrasound (DU) examination, a crucial step in understanding the root cause of her visible veins. The examination revealed an abnormality in the right Small Saphenous Vein (SSV), deeply embedded in the calf muscles, feeding the surface varices.
Armed with this information, we adopted a multifaceted treatment approach. Using the innovative Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) technique under local anesthesia, known for its high success rate of up to 95%, we provided a seamless outpatient experience. The patient only needed to wear compression stockings during the day for a week post-treatment, and she resumed her routine the next day with minimal discomfort.
Following the success of EVLA, we proceeded with ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy (UGS) and Direct Vision Sclerotherapy (DVS). The patient sailed through these stages with admirable resilience, experiencing minimal discomfort and no downtime.
A snapshot taken 10 weeks after two treatment sessions showcased her remarkable progress. Radiating satisfaction with both the aesthetic and medical improvements, her symptoms had gracefully receded, allowing her confidence to make a triumphant return.
In the heart of Melbourne, our clinic had the honor of contributing to this success story, demonstrating the transformative impact of our expertise in addressing vein conditions. This success story goes beyond boundaries, embodying the fusion of medical proficiency and personal empowerment. As guardians of health and champions of confidence, we are committed to creating many more chapters of renewed vitality and self-assuredness.
