If you’ve got an embarrassing condition, don’t suffer in silence! Visit your doctor and see if they can help! There are procedures and treatments available for a wide range of ailments, so take action and improve your confidence.
Here are just some of the issues that can be cured:
Excess hair- Believe it or not, many women suffer from excess hair on their face, neck, chest, stomach and breasts. It can appear for a number of reasons, but polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the main causes. According to the NHS, PCOS affects millions of ladies in the UK and can cause a hormonal imbalance – which triggers the hair growth. Luckily, laser hair removal can permanently remove hair from most body parts, so it’s definitely worth arranging a consultation if you have this problem.
Varicose veins- Varicose veins are swollen and enlarged veins that usually appear in the legs and feet. They are often purple in colour and occur when the small valves in the veins stop working properly – allowing blood to flow backwards. They don’t usually present a serious health problem and can be treated using compression stockings that are designed to improve circulation. If the veins cause significant discomfort, however, there are numerous surgical procedures that can remove them.
Thread veins- Thread veins are damaged veins and capillaries just below the skin that can appear purple or red. They’re usually smaller than varicose veins and can show up anywhere on the face, body or legs – especially as we age. Veins of this kind are often inherited, but they can also be caused by excessive sun exposure, pregnancy, steroids, alcohol, smoking and prolonged standing. While some people choose to ignore them, others undergo laser treatment, which can improve the skin’s appearance.
Moles- Moles are extremely common and can vary in size, shape and colour. They’re usually harmless, but if they affect your confidence it’s wise to see your doctor. Many plastic surgery clinics offer mole removal surgery and will do all they can to leave you with a clean, clear complexion. Typically, a sample of the mole will be removed for analysis (to check for abnormal cells) before the procedure is completed. It may leave a small scar, but this should fade in time.
If you’re worried about something, don’t hesitate to seek medical advice! You might be surprised at the amount of help that’s on offer!
