Vein Treatment In Melbourne
If you require cosmetic vein treatment or varicose vein treatment in Melbourne, it’s important to have clear and comprehensive options that provide the right form of care. Understanding which vein treatment works for you starts with understanding your symptoms. Dr Ed Omarjee and his team understand the importance of educating patients and are always available to ensure that every patient is aware of their options, allowing them to make the best decision possible to treat their vein condition. Learn about some of the non surgical vein treatment options offered by our cosmetic physician below.
Facial vein Treatment
Facial veins are broken capillaries caused largely by genetics and environmental damage. These small red vessels commonly appear on the nose, cheeks and chin and can be unsightly and embarrassing. Left untreated, they can continue to dilate and become more noticeable. Prevention, early facial vein treatment, and ongoing maintenance often provide the best results. Dr Ed Omarjee can treat broken capillaries that cause the appearance of facial veins with the Cutera Nd:YAG (1064nm) laser, the IDAS (532nm) KTP laser or the Cutera Limelight (IPL). Get in touch with us if you’d like to find out more about IPL vein removal performed by a cosmetic physician.
Varicose Vein Treatment
Widely considered the most unpleasant of all veins due to their large size, varicose veins can often be seen from metres away. They typically venture from the groin area to below or behind the knee and can exert pressure on smaller veins that can lead to additional problems. Dr Omarjee specialises in providing varicose vein treatment to Melbourne patients. We also offer ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy vein treatment, which involves our cosmetic physician injecting a chemical agent to induce blood vessel scarring and closure.
Spider Vein Removal
Spider veins are essentially burst blood vessels that have been overloaded with pressure. Spider veins can sprout with overexposure to the sun, injuries and hormonal changes. The DOC Clinic offers spider vein removal in Melbourne, this is preferably performed via micro-sclerotherapy (the known gold standard for small surface veins on the lower limbs). If for certain reasons that sclerotherapy is not applicable, then a specific vascular laser is utilized to assist the elimination of the spider veins on the legs and thighs.

Rosacea And Haemangiomas
Dr Omarjee can treat specific facial vein conditions such as rosacea and haemangiomas using advanced and up-to-date non surgical vein removal techniques.
Characterised by noticeable flushing in the face as well as redness in the nose and cheeks, Rosacea can result in small bumps on the face and a burning sensation in the eyes, severely affecting the quality of life of the sufferer. At this stage there is no cure, but rosacea treatment options to reduce the effects are available.
Haemangiomas don’t affect the quality of life of a person in the same painful way that rosacea can, but they are unsightly at best and can affect a person’s self confidence. They are essentially large collections of blood vessels that can be flat or raised, and they can appear anywhere on the body. People will typically seek a non surgical vein treatment to have them removed or significantly reduced in appearance.
Rosacea and Angioma/Haemangioma are treated non surgically via specific vascular lasers (such as the Cutera 1064nm Laser , and the Alma 532nm (KTP) laser) or IPL (Cutera Limelight) technology.
