How I Got My Confidence Back With Leg Vein Treatment

Daphne came to MediZen as she felt self-conscious of her leg veins, she longed to wear skirts in the Summer with confidence, without constantly having to worry about her veins.
Thread veins, often known as broken or spider veins, are tiny red, blue or purple lines just below the skin. They are veins that have become dilated and more easily visible through thinner, usually older skin. They measure no more than 1-2mm in thickness, and shouldn’t be confused with varicose veins, which bulge outwards from the skin, and are regarded as a more serious medical condition.
Laser Thread Vein Removal is a quick and simple treatment to remove fine thread veins and general facial redness that arise on your face, or for the treatment of spider veins on the legs. Using a process known as ‘Photojuvenation’, we can use light energy to heat the area treated, removing thread veins whilst ensuring that we don't damage the surrounding tissue.

Watch Daphne speak about her treatment in this video.

"I was really nervous about the Duetto vein treatment as I’ve never had any laser treatment before and I had heard that it can be quite painful. However, after a consultation at MediZen I felt at ease as my practitioner explained what I could expect from the treatment.
During my first treatment, some veins lightened up instantly and some darkened. My practitioner explained that both of these outcomes were an indication that the laser was having the desired effect. 
Immediately after the treatment the area treated went red and there was a mild amount of swelling.
My second treatment session was eight weeks later and by that time most of my veins had disappeared, whilst the others had visibly faded. 
After 3 treatments they had completely faded.
I’m so thrilled with the results and I won’t have any hesitation to wear skirts in the Summer now!"
