No more lumpy legs!

 As ‘summer’ is here, the prospect of baring legs may cause fear for many women out there but there is a group who fear more; those with Varicose Veins.
The condition often associated with elder members of the public, can in fact strike at adolescence. It was certainly the case for Alice Garner, 23, who has suffered Varicose Veins since she was 16.
Daring to bare: But Alice Garner, 23, hid her legs after varicose veins struck at 16. Last summer, she had EVLA treatment
Alice struggled through summers and dealt with wardrobe issues to often until she had Endovenous Laser Ablation treatment (EVLA). An alternative to the traditional stripping method, EVLA uses laser energy that causes the walls of the vein to collapse. Unlike traditional stripping, the EVLA procedure does not involve lengthy recovery times, long periods off work or scarring. Now the treatment can eradicate varicose veins for good in less than an hour and is performed under local anaesthetic.
23 year old Alice finally benefited from the procedure after years of refusing to bare her legs in public, avoiding swimming and would only ever wear long skirts. For Alice and many women, this is very depressing and can really affect confidence.
Alice was amazed at the whole treatment process.  She could walk out of the clinic the same day of her procedure, she was only wrapped in surgical bandages to minimise bruising and was told to walk around to reduce the risk of blood clots. After the procedure, her legs ached for a couple of days, but were easily treated with painkillers. She only had to take two days work and her varicose veins had completely gone.
