With summer just a few months away, now is the time to start working on a pair of perfect pins to be proud of.
As the days get longer and the temperature rises, so too will the hemlines. But while this is fine if you possess toned, tanned, blemish-free legs, for thousands of women who take refuge in thick winter tights during the cold weather, this can prove a nightmare once the summer arrives.
A leading UK clinic which specialises in the removal of thread veins, Dr Newmans Clinic, has stepped in with its revolutionary new treatment ‘Veinwave’ to take the legwork out of preparing those pins for summer exposure.
It is estimated that up to 15 million people across the UK – men and women – suffer from unsightly thread or ‘spider’ veins on their lower limbs, making it uncomfortable and often embarrassing to dare to go bare.
However Dr Newmans Clinic – the only doctor-led clinic of its kind in the UK – has introduced a pioneering and relatively pain-free microwave treatment, which is helping to restore confidence and allow women to banish their opaques to the back of the wardrobe.
The non-invasive, walk-in, walk-out procedure, Veinwave (Thermocoagulation), has been offered at Malone Medical Chambers for a year now and is proving hugely successful with clients from all over Ireland wishing to remove thread veins from the face, legs and other areas of the body.
All treatments are carried out by Dr Michael Broughton of Dr Newman’s Clinic, who travels over to Belfast from London’s Harley Street to treat his patients.
Explaining how Veinwave works he said: “This technique uses microwave technology to destroy fine thread veins quickly. While some results can be instantaneous, other patients may require multiple treatments. Sclerotherapy is advised for deeper rooted veins in the leg area, so it may well be a combination of both treatments to achieve the required result.
“With spring upon us, many women will start thinking now about getting their legs summer-ready. This could involve using toning exercises, exfoliation, cellulite creams and fake tan, but for some women, having blemish-free legs is the dream.
“With Sclerotherapy and/or Veinwave we can quickly and effectively remove unsightly thread veins and help give you the legs you desire. And as the UK’s principal doctor-led thread vein specialist, we can assure you that you’re in very safe hands.”
During the initial consultation, the depth of the vein is examined and this determines the treatment plan for the patient. We ask patients to allow approx. 30 minutes for an appointment and afterwards patients can resume normal activities. Should more than one treatment be required, which is typically the case for the leg area, a period of approximately 6 weeks will be necessary between treatments, so time is of the essence to achieve dream pins for 2017!
