Varicose Vein Treatment Centre
Book a Consultation

I HAVE BRUISING TYPE MARKS ON MY LEGS THAT APPEARED AFTER MY FIRST PREGNANCY WHICH ARE EXTREMELY PAINFUL AND EVEN MORE SO AROUND THE TIME OF MY PERIOD. I WAS WONDERING IF THIS LASER TREATMENT WOULD HELP ME?

We would need to see you for a consultation where a colour duplex ultrasound scan of your legs would be undertaken. The scan would reveal whether your symptoms are being caused by faulty valves on the inside of your legs. We would also check whether they are being caused by pelvic vein congestion due to the fact that they get worse around the time of your period (although this is unlikely). It is likely that either laser treatment or embolisation would be helpful.
