My name is Gaynor and I am an experienced Registered General Nurse and Independent Nurse Prescriber. My background begins when I qualified over 30 years ago in 1984 developing my skills as I worked in many different aspects of nursing. In 2008 I moved down from North West London continuing with my nursing career and in 2011 I branched out into the aesthetic field of nursing, where I now specialise in non-surgical cosmetic treatments. I also worked for many years in vascular nursing where I had the opportunity to do my training in treating leg thread veins (telangiectasia) known as microsclerotherapy. To maintain up to date and safe practice I am a member of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses and British Association of Sclerotherapists.
I very much focus on providing treatments that aim to improve the skin as well as offer treatments that help to maintain a youthful look. Being passionate about great skin and anti-ageing, I work with my clients through their journey to achieve their own radiant and healthy looking skin.
Visible superficial veins on the legs are often called thread veins or spider veins; the medical term though is telangiectasia. They can be unsightly and many people feel they need to continuously cover their legs up even during the summer.
The most effective treatment for leg thread veins is by microsclerotherapy. This involves injecting a solution known as a sclerosant into the vein using a very fine needle. This causes the walls of the tiny vein to collapse and then the healing process of breaking it down begins. Initially the veins will still be visible during this healing process but will begin to fade away after a few weeks.
A full assessment of your legs will be carried out during your consultation to check your suitability for this treatment and to check there are no signs of varicose veins present.
To obtain good results, you usually require more than one treatment (on average 2-3 treatments) and the time between treatments is usually 6-12 weeks. This may seem a long time but it allows your body to do its work of breaking down the vein that has been treated.
It is recommended to wear compression hosiery for 2 weeks post treatment.
