Testimonials

A selection of comments received by The Leg Clinic:

  • Feeling the way I did and being conscious of how ugly the thread veins looked is a thing of the past for me now.
  • Jane is a very caring and considerate lady indeed. She has the patience to listen, examine and is honest in what she can do for you and leaves the decision to you - no forced sales talk or forced decisions to be made at all - the decision is entirely up to yourself - which, in my opinion, is priceless in itself.
  • I look forward to swimming again, going to the gym and summers when I can wear shorts or even a swim suit without any horrible remarks being made!

Thread Veins

What are thread veins?

Thread veins are thin reddish/purple veins, just under the surface of the skin, which can spoil the appearance of your legs. They are not usually painful but people who have them may feel disinclined to expose their legs by wearing short skirts or swimsuits. The cause of these unattractive veins is not known. There can be a link with underlying poor circulation or with varicose veins. There is often a family history. Thread veins can be successfully treated.

Assessment

Possible causes will be assessed at initial consultation. In most cases, treatment can commence immediately. A series of three to four appointments is usually required. If varicose veins are present, referral to a vascular surgeon can be arranged.
