Why treat veins?

Vein and Laser Group

Varicose veins are often quite symptomatic with aching, heaviness, cramp and itching. These problems may cause limitations to lifestyle choices and enjoyment of life.

Even small veins can become painful and can undermine a person's confidence and self-esteem.

Examination by our vein physician followed by an ultrasound scan will determine which treatment is required. Because segments of varicose veins may not be visible on the skin surface, as they run in a deeper plane just under the skin, an ultrasound scan is carried out prior to treatment to create a "virtual map" of the lower leg veins.

The recommended treatment depends on the initial examination by our vein physician and the scan findings.

On behalf of our Fur Babies

Jodie from Greenhithe

Hi dear neighbours
Just a gentle reminder leading into warmer days that dogs left in cars need a decent airflow... inside of cars heat up really really quickly and leaving an inch gap in one or two windows is NOT enough air for them in the heat. I’ve seen and heard two dogs this morning stressed out in cars.. one in the Greenhithe school car park and one at the shops... so please please on behalf of our fur babies... take your valuables and open those windows up! Cheers

Hazy weekend for New Zealand.. again

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hazy skies caused by the Australian bush fires are set to linger this weekend.
Northwesterly winds have blown a hazy plume of smoke across the Tasman Sea, and while it has mostly affected the South Island in recent weeks, it has moved up the country.
The "robust plume" is expected to head to the South Island late on Saturday.
The haze has been causing a yellowish-orange, hue at sunset, making for some sweet sunset photos. Share your photos in the comments!
