Dr Lyn Jones
3rd May 2019
It is 5 months on from when I received EVLA and sclerotherapy for multiple varicosities, to both legs. I was very conscious wearing skirts/shorts and felt 'guilty' about spending a large sum of money on what I considered 'cosmetic' treatment.
Lyn Jones at Veincentre, Bristol was excellent. She listened to my concerns, was professional and reasurring. The 90 minute treatment gave me some brief discomfort but no real pain.
In the follow up appointment 2 months later, I confess to feeling a bit ' rushed' but the waiting room was busy. Lyn reassured me that the prominent veins still visible would settle as I had some thrombophlebitis (a common side effect) and they are continuing to look less evident.
In conclusion, I have absolutely no regrets on having this treatment, I felt it was ( a lot!) of money well spent and can now confidently wear skirts and shorts. My husband (who was reluctant about me having the procedure) commented 2 months on that there was an 'amazing improvement' ; high praise indeed!!
Thank you Lyn!
