We are a boutique vein clinic operated by an experienced and dedicated team. Owned and operated in Dunedin, our team will tailor a treatment plan specifically for your personal vein complaints.

ABOUT
VEINS ━━━━

Arteries carry blood that are full of  oxygen and nutrients from the heart to the body. In contrast, veins return deoxygenated blood and by-products back to the heart with the aid of muscular contraction and a one-way valve inside the veins.

Together these valves keep the blood traveling in the correct direction, particularly when standing upright. When valves falter blood travels back down the veins and creates varicose vein’s which can present with a variety of symptoms.

Causes of
varicose veins ━━━━

Varicose veins arise due to a number of reasons;

• Genetics ie: familial inheritance
• Trauma
• Occupation i.e. standing jobs
• Pregnancy

Symptoms

• Cramping in the legs
• Restless legs at night time
• Swelling particularly around the ankles
• Discoloration of the skin
• Ulceration
• Burning sensation
• Itchiness
• Patches of dry skin and eczema
• Increasing leg tiredness as the day progresses
• Poor healing of skin when integrity is compromised.
