Many people prefer to try a natural remedy for medical problems.
Some traditional treatments can be very effective for some conditions, but this is not the case.
Japanese Pagoda Tree
For vein problems
Extract from Japanese Pagoda Tree has been used widely in Europe since the mid-1960s for treatment of various vein conditions including spider veins.
Used in both supplements and creams, the extract has been shown to enhance vein stability, improve circulation and reduce inflammation.
There are clinical studies which show that Japanese Pagoda Tree extract can improve the appearance of spider veins and to provide relief from the swelling, aching, and discomfort of varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency.
Will it work?
Effectiveness will depend upon the severity of the vein problem.
Vein problems are caused by localised pooling of blood due to damage or inefficiency in the venous system. Once the vein is damaged to a certain point, supplements or creams are of very limited benefit. They are likely to be more use in preventing new vein problems then improving existing difficulties.
For established spider veins or thread veins, a more intensive medical treatment is recommended.
London Vein Treatment Centre
Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ main London Vein Treatment Centre has the latest Harmony XL Pro laser machine, which provides a gentle and effective treatment for visible veins on the face and body.
Harmony XL Pro Laser treatment targets problem capillaries, vessels or veins with a blast of laser energy. This damages the veins so that they shrink, shrivel up and eventually disappear.
Treatment using micro-cautery laser is also available at all of the company’s skin treatment centres.
For more problematic varicose veins, the company also offer the latest EVLA laser treatment, foam sclerotherapy injections and micro-surgery; all on a day-case basis.
