Hi, my name is Candida. I have witnessed a large, I didn’t really know it was a varicose vein but a vein, and spider veins in my leg. Since having children about four years ago it’s got progressively worst. Last summer I couldn’t go on a bikini or shorts and I sorted to little make up or something of flake tie would cover it but really just was not working at all. So I thought I have to look into it. My mother had varicose veins too so I thought it might be on the family and so I looked for a doctor who could help with this and I came here for consultation and thinking it was just with a spider vein treatment and Kay who gave me the consultation said I think we’ve got a large varicose vein here and that’s making all the spider veins work. So I was so impressed with how thorough they were and this girl, the technology and using the ultrasound machine in my leg and just how they can ascertain the state of one leg and what needs treatment. So I was very reassure the service as soon as I came here that it wasn’t just a standard procedure. So I came back after a few weeks or so and they took out a one large long varicose vein from the top of my thigh to my ankle with the laser procedure. No, not personally. My father is a dentist. My mother had varicose vein treatment who’ve always been very medically orientated and action orientated, if there’s a problem we should see a specialist in that field if we can. So no, I didn’t feel it was being tossed upon who’s someone said but it was necessary because it was hurting you know and it was unsightly but also so felt pressure on the lower part of my body.
