Vein Treatments Now Available

By The COZmedics Team - Wednesday, 2 November 2016

With Dr Hugo Pin joining the team at COZmedics Maroochydore, we can now offer a full range of treatments for vein disorders including Varicose and Spider Veins.

About Hugo

Dr Hugo Pin obtained his medical degree in France 1980 after 8 years of training. After a few years working in emergency departments and GP clinics, impressed by the progress made in ultrasound techniques he decided to begin training as a sonologist (a specialist in ultrasound). Following three years of training and extensive examination, Dr Pin became fully qualified in Clinical Ultrasound Diagnosis.

When in Australia, Dr Pin achieved full Australian Medical qualifications through Fellowship of the Royal College of Australian GP (RACGP), and eventually gained Australian citizenship in 2015. During this time, Hugo began learning the latest techniques in vein treatment, and after attending a medical conference on the Gold Coast, he discovered how these new treatments had completely revolutionised the management of varicose veins, allowing doctors to treat 99% of venous problems without surgery.

Dr Pin has now successfully completed more than 4000 venous treatments by sclerotherapy, laser or phlebectomy without any problem, and minimal to no downtime.

He is also trained in many cosmetic procedures like dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, thread lifts and liposuction through different Colleges in Australia and abroad.

Outside of the clinic, Dr Pin is highly active and has completed seven triathlons so far. He loves outdoor sports such as surfing and kite surfing, and enjoys a round of golf with his wife.

Treating Veins

Endovenous Laser Ablation (ELA)

Endovenous laser treatment is a minimally invasive, in-office treatment alternative to surgical stripping. Instead of removing the saphenous vein, it is sealed closed in place. This procedure is done in-office under local anaesthesia. Patients are able to walk immediately after the procedure and most individuals are able to return to work the next day.

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy (UGS)

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy is an in-office treatment alternative to surgical stripping. Sclerotherapy is done with either a liquid or “foamed” sclerosant, while the doctor visually monitors the vein on an ultrasound screen. Ultrasound imaging is used to guide a needle into the abnormal vein and deliver medication to destroy the lining of the blood vessel and seal it shut. Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is primarily used to treat large veins beneath the surface of the skin.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a method of surgical removal of surface varicose veins. Ambulatory phlebectomy is usually performed in a doctor’s office using local anaesthesia. The punctures typically leave nearly imperceptible scars.


Sclerotherapy is a common treatment for small (spider veins) and medium size (reticular) veins. A tiny needle is used to inject the veins with a solution (called a sclerosant) that irritates the lining of the vein. In response, the veins collapse and are reabsorbed.

Vein Gogh

The Vein Gogh Ohmic Thermolysis System generates a tiny, regulated, high frequency current delivered to the vessel via a hair-thin probe. A “microburst” of energy selectively heats the vein, coagulating the blood and collapsing the vessel wall, which is quickly absorbed into the body. All this is accomplished without affecting the outer layers of the skin resulting in a quick return to normal daily activities.
