Renowned private general medical practice, the Glasgow Medical Rooms, is adding another string to their bow with the addition of Dr Paul Beresford-Jones, who is running a Friday clinic specialising in the treatment of thread veins, in association with Dr Newmans Clinic.
Thread veins, known to the medical profession as Telangiectasia, are a common complaint suffered by people of all ages, and commonly found on the face and legs. Particularly distressing for some sufferers the thin veins, also known as spider-veins, tend to increase in quantity and visibility over time.
Dr Newmans Clinic is the UK’s only doctor-led thread vein removal specialists, and has treatments centres across the country, from Harley Street to Glasgow. It uses a pioneering, non-invasive treatment called ‘Thermocoagulation’ – also known as Veinwave or Thermavein – which utilises microwaves to heat fine blood vessels, removing them without the need of lasers or scarring.
Over 2,000 patients per year are treated using this method, with far greater success than laser surgery, and no adverse side effects. The microwaves penetrate tissue to a depth of 0.5mm to 2mm.
The clinic, held in Glasgow Medical Rooms luxurious surroundings, will be taken by Dr Beresford-Jones, who has over 33 years of medical experience, and has practised in both Roedean and London’s Harley Street.
Dr Sheila O’Neill, founder and head of the Glasgow Medical Rooms, said: “Being able to offer help to those afflicted with facial veins, facial redness, rosacea and similar conditions is another great service we can provide for the people of Glasgow, and I am very happy to welcome a doctor of such comprehensive experience as Dr Beresford-Jones to the practice.”
A previous patient, A Roberts, of Glasgow, said: “I suffered with Rosacea for years before I read about Dr Newmans clinic. After an initial consultation and the use of some cream to calm my skin, I underwent the treatment which was a great success. For the first time in years I went to the gym with little more than some tinted moisturizer on my face.”
