Varicose veins are swollen superficial veins (veins that lie under the skin) that look lumpy and dark blue or purple through the skin. They usually affect the legs, particularly the calf and sometimes the thigh.
Varicose veins are very common and affect up to three in 10 people at some time in their lives. They are slightly more common in women. For most people they are a problem mainly because of the way they look.

Zenith offer a new laser treatment that can quickly and safely eliminate unsightly leg veins. These can all be treated painlessly and in some cases only take a few minutes.
Our advanced technology minimises the redness and bruising normally associated with traditional treatments. Best of all, our technology allows us to treat people of any ethnic origin and skin type including tanned skin.
The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in your blood and collapses the unwanted vein. The laser energy is delivered through a hand-held device with a cooling tip that protects your skin.
The appearance of leg veins will either dramatically fade or completely disappear during the treatment. Some vessels may show temporary swelling that will subside after a few hours to a few days. The redness of the treated vessels will gradually disappear as the healing process occurs. This may take between two and eight weeks.
