I had my veins treated on 14th March by my colleague Robin Windhaber. Some of you may have seen the video of the procedure actually being done. Well it’s 3 months now and its time for an update.
The procedure itself was very straight forward. I chose to have both my legs treated in the same session. I was surprised how little discomfort there was. The local anaesthetic injections did not hurt and of course, I did not feel the laser which was used to heat the unhealthy veins from the inside. I was able to walk comfortably immediately afterwards and I didn’t take any painkillers. I walked for 2 or 3 miles the next day and I was able to drive 2 days after. The improvement in my symptoms was immediate and the aching and throbbing has gone and my legs feel much better. The procedure was done on Friday and I was back at my clinic treating others on Monday.
Three months have passed and I only wish I had made the time to have my veins treated sooner. I still have a little sensitivity on the inside of my thighs just above the knees where the veins underneath are still being absorbed as part of the healing process. And I still wear my medical socks. I wear them to protect my healthy veins from the damaging effects of gravity.

The VeinCare Centre also offers a screening assessment with our vascular technologist. For £25 you can have a scan with Wendy Parsons. She is not a doctor and so she could not give you medical advice but she can check your deep veins and your varicose veins and give you an idea of how bad they are and whether laser might be suitable for you.
