Cosmetic Foot Procedures
In our clinic, we offer several procedures to help with the cosmetic appearance of your feet and ankles.
Scar Tissue Remodelling
Scars can be the result of trauma or a post-surgical complication. One of the most common procedures is scar tissue reduction through laser surgery or injection therapy. In some cases, we would do a combination of both followed with special creams. Scars can be classified into three categories:
• Keloid scarring: firm, purple-looking thick scars
• Atrophic scarring: depressed pin-like pockets
• Hyperthropic scarring: firm, raised, pink scars
Varicose/Spider Vein Reduction
Varicose and spider veins are a product of weak or damaged valves. An increase in pressure within the blood vessels causes them to dilate and enlarge. Varicose veins can be blue, red
or flesh coloured. We can treat varicose/spider veins that are less then 3mm in diameter using a product that helps in the reduction of the skin and vein/capillary discolouration. To prevent the
varicose/spider veins from returning we recommend dietary modifications, regular exercise, activity modifications and possible compression therapy.
