I developed varicose veins in my early 30's.They were extemely pronounced.This resulted in me feeling unable to swim with my young children and never wearing skirts! I also experienced a heavy dragging feeling in my legs at the end of the day and I was also concerned that they may lead to further complications. I was initially refused treatment by the NHS,as they worsened I was offered surgical stripping,but I declined this due to fear of the operation! I can truly say that visiting Mr Gajraj was the best thing I could have done! The results have been truly incredible.The treatment is quick and relatively painless and the results are amazing.It was lovely to meet a Dr who actually took varicose veins seriously and recognises the problems they can cause.I have recommended him widely and know of 3 people who have had similar results by having foam sclerotherapy after seeing the transformation of my legs! I now many years on from my initial treatment visit him yearly for check-ups/any top up treatments required.He is always friendly and listens to/discusses any concerns.A fantastic professional.

I first developed varicose veins in my early twenties. when my employment required be to stand for long periods of time on concreate floors. Hereditary wise, I was always going to be at risk of vascular problems as my father also had varicose vains and indeed the weakness is now apparent in my children. Now, forty years on a cluster of vains purtruded from inside my right thigh like a bunch of grapes. As I am a keen Triathlete which involves swimming, cycling and running it had become embarrising getting into training gear and showing my legs. I visited my GP who advised that, as I was in no real pain and as it was mainly cosmetic it could NOT be corrected on the NHS. As she was aware through other patients of Mr Gajraj work, she recommended that I contacted the Melbury Clinic. At my first consultation with Mr Gajraj he advised that the VNUS ClosureFAST procedure would be the most suitable for the condition. On the day of the treatment I arrived at the Clinic at 8am after taking some medication to relax me and consent form signing, the procedure got under way by 9am.After an hour and a quarterand with no more discomfort than going to the dentist, it was all done. I then had to lie still with my legs up until mid day then off home. Job Done! I suffered no post- procedure pain but the area where the procedure had taken place showed traces of deminishing bruising for six weeks. After the procedure, I asked Mr Gajraj when I could resume training, his answer was " you will know when you are ready" and he was right. After six weeks I now feel I can get back to a full training programme . Great Job, I wish the VNUS ClosureFast method had been available years ago......Stewart Palmer
I attended Dr Gajraj's Sclerotherapy and Facial Telangectasia one day course. I was very impressed by the course as it gave me lots of practical injecting experience that left me feeling confident that I could introduce these new techniques into my busy Cosmetic Skin Clinic. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend Dr Gajraj. He was warm, interested and engaging and a created a safe learning environment for Medical Professionals looking to develop more practical skills.
My wife and I discussed the pros and cons of having her viens treated at some length. The procedure is not cheap and we also looked at other sites. We visited the clinic on two occassions and no pressure or sales technics were apparent. The options were given and we also consulted our own GP. After careful consideration we decided to proceed. What a result. My wife is so pleased at the standard of care and treatment that she has received but also the vast improvement already apparent with further treatment to complete the job. Not only is this treatment painless and provides if you like cosmetic and physical benefit but also can only improve confidence and that feel good factor. So it has cosmetic medical and mental benefits. Left alone the appearance could only deteriorate further A very sound long term investment. Top quality service and 100% confidence in the team and care for you as an individual.
