The difference is clear after just 4 sessions of thread vein treatment

Thread veins and spider veins are often dismissed as a minor cosmetic condition by doctors but can be a significant blight for many people which prevents their full enjoyment of life. I’ve treated many who haven’t been swimming for years or who don’t feel able to wear shorts or a shorter skirt because they feel too self-conscious about exposing their legs.

As these photos show simple effective outpatient treatment is available. Usually, three or four 30 minute sessions of injection microsclerotherapy, with a session performed every few weeks can restore a normal appearance and allow you to ‘get your legs out’ and enjoy the summer for once!!!
