Vein Clinic Sunshine Coast QLD
Varicose veins and spider veins are usually a result of venous reflux.
Venous reflux is the impaired return of blood from the legs and feet, often creating varicose veins, swelling, aching, skin changes or venous ulcers. In many cases, venous insufficiency is the result of over dilation of the venous vessels in the legs. This dilation eventually prevents the valve cusps from closing properly- resulting in reflux.
At Sunshine Vein Clinic, we can provide non-surgical treatment of varicose veins and spider veins on the Sunshine Coast.

Our non-surgical vein treatments offer far better long term results than surgical vein stripping.
Recent studies have shown that the five year recurrence rate after vein stripping is 50 to 65%. Surgical stripping also carries the risk of side effects related to general anaesthesia and prolonged immobility that is never present with newer non-surgical methods.
Vein Clinic Sunshine Coast
Our clinic located on the Sunshine Coast offers vein treatment options that do not require hospitalisation, general anaesthesia, or a prolonged recovery period. Patients typically experience minimal pain, and can return to work within a day or two. The five-year recurrence rate for vein treatment procedures like ours has been reported to be only 8 to 10%.
