Are your leg veins an embarrassment or worse?
25th May 2013
If the veins on you legs have stopped you from wearing swim suites and skirts this
summer or if they itch, ache or cause you discomfort then now is the time to think
about doing something about them! Sclerotherapy is a safe treatment involving tiny
injections into the veins which can completely remove them. Sclerotherapy is available
at the Beaufort Medical -
Holiday Sun Protection.
17th May 2013
Summer holiday time is fast approaching again but don't forget that you must take along your sun protection. We recommend that you use an SPF 50 with a UVA protection rating of at least three stars. Remember a sun tan may look good for a couple of weeks after you holiday but heavy sun exposure can do profound damage to you skin and is the major cause of skin cancers!

Summer Advice to Patients
4 August 2012
In the full flow of the holiday season please do not forget to protect yourself (and the children) from the damaging effects of the sun. If you are "flying off" for a well earned break or even spending some time catching up on the gardening the rules should be the same. Firstly ensure that you stay in the shade between the hours of 11am and 3pm, not only because this is the hottest part of the day but also because the suns rays are filtered by less atmosphere when it is high in the sky so more of the damaging radiation reaches our skin. Secondly make sure you NEVER burn. Cover up with a T shirt, broad brimmed hat and sun glasses (the backs of your eyes can also be damaged by the sun). Apply sunscreen of SPF30 frequently throughout the day. Finally be especially careful with the children. Their skin cancer risk when they are in their 50s and 60s is mainly set by how well you look after their skin when they are young!
Enjoy the summer!
