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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt?

This is not a painful procedure. The injections are very superficial and made with a tiny needle. Levels of discomfort vary from one person to another. Most people enjoy a chat during the procedure, some have been known to fall asleep!

What will my legs look like after treatment?

The injection will initially cause some redness and welts, like insect bites. These will have gone by the next day. When you remove the stockings your legs will probably look bruised and the veins often look worse before they look better. The veins are darker at this stage. The appearance improves noticably by day 10-14, and will continue to improve thereafter. The full result of the treatment session will be apparent by about 12 weeks. There is a huge variation in time of response to treatment. You may well get a big improvement sooner than this.

How many treatments will I need?

This can depend on the individual response to treatment and the extent of the thread veins. It is best to budget for up to 4 treatments over a period of 4-12 weeks. It is possible to get an excellent result after one treatment.

Will the thread veins come back?

You are likely to make more thread veins and may need top up treatments every 2-3 years. The same ones are unlikely to reappear.
