As the skin ages it loses elasticity and the veins and tendons on the hand become more prominent. We now use a two stage process to improve the appearance of the hands. The first stage is "skin booster" injection which greatly improves the quality of the skin and hides the underlying veins and tendons. For the few that find the results from this first treatment insufficient, then sclerotherapy can be used to treat the veins directly.
Contact us via email for more information.
We are pleased to announce two information evenings at Fitzwilliam, one in April and one in May and final details are being made. These evenings have proved very popular in the past so feel free to get in touch via email to register your interest.
Watch this space for more information.
Unfortunately, after showing some promise last week, the weather is going to turn cold again. However, if you're considering getting some veins treated, then this is the ideal time to get assessed. It takes 8-12 weeks for veins to settle after injection meaning there's time for 2 treatments before the summer comes around. Also, compression stockings are so much easier to wear in cold weather.
If you were thinking about arranging a consultation, there's no better time to come. Hope to see you soon.

In response to growing demand from the north and west of the province, we are delighted to announce that regular clinics are now underway at the North West Independent Hospital at Ballykelly.

Unfortunately, due to competing commitments, I have had to suspend future clinics at Maypole. The Cosmetech team are looking for an alternative practitioner to take over the practice there. I'd like to thank them for all their efforts to date.
Please get in touch if you would like information about alternative options for consultation or treatment with myself.
Continuing the successful open evenings, a new series as been planned at Fitzwilliam. The first evening is this week and booked out before I had a chance to publicise on the website.

The BAS annual meeting was held at the very impressive Dorney Lake Conference Centre, home of the 2012 Olympic Rowing venue and Eton College's boat club.
Included in the line of UK and international experts was myself! I was a great honour to present my experience of managing smaller veins with sclerotherapy to the society.
I'd like to extend my thanks to the society for the invite, and to all the delegates who spoke to me afterwards about the management of small and larger veins too.
After the success of our March evening, we plan to run more events in the future. Places are limited, so email for more details and an invite.
Hope to see you there.
Colin and Alastair spent an excellent three days among fellow specialists in keyhole vein surgery at the first international meeting at the College of Phlebology.
All aspects of venous disease, from cosmetic practices for small veins right through to helping to heal leg ulcers by treating large veins.
New things to look forward to are the acquisition of a new laser (1470nm radial fibre for the technically curious amongst you), and the addition of skin fillers when treating hand and chest veins.
The conference had a massive social angle we hadn't seen before. Check out #veinhealth and #CoPIVM for more info.
Thank you to everyone who came along on Monday. The evening was a fantastic success, and the positive feedback is very much appreciated.
The next evening is provisionally being planned for early June. Watch this space for more details as they come available.
Open night at the Maypole Clinic. Monday 13th March.
Come along, meet the team and find out more about treatments for veins. Special offers available on the night.
By invitation only, places limited, email email@example.com for more information.
Apologies to anyone who hasn't been able to get in touch. E-mail has now been fixed. Please resend any queries and I will answer ASAP.
Two new treatment options have gained approval for the treatment of varicose veins.
Sapheon glue and Clarivein now offer a reliable alternative to laser or radio-frequency ablation. As neither involve heating the wall of the vein, speedy reliable closure is achieved without the need for local anaesthetic injections. Excellent news if you do not like needles!
Make an appoint at one of our centres to discuss the advantages of these new techniques.
Despite increasing the number of appointments at Kingsbridge and Fitzwilliam, these clinics are filling up fast with most of the appointments in June booked up already. There is still space at Hillsborough and Maypole over the next few weeks for anyone wanting an early appointment. Summer is almost upon us, so remember the advice about sun exposure if you are thinking of having thread vein treatments.
