Thread Veins Treatment

Dr Paul Beresford-Jones runs his Dr Newman’s Clinic from Glasgow Medical Rooms. Dr Newman’s Clinic is the UK’s only doctor led clinic solely dedicated to the treatment of facial veins, facial redness, rosacea, red nose, red cheeks, large nose veins and leg veins.

What are thread veins? Also medically known as Telangiectasia, they are a common complaint that can affect people of all ages and are often found on the face and legs. Also called spider veins,  theyare tiny prominent veins just below the skin surface. They tend to branch and give a spidery sort of pattern hence their common name. Spider veins can occur anywhere on the body but most often on the legs and face. They can cause a lot of misery for people who suffer from them.

Is this laser treatment?
No. Laser is not used in any of our treatments. The techniques we use are injection compression sclerotherapy and the modern method of treating finer veins, thermocoagulation, often referred to as Veinwave, Thermocoagulation is far more successful in the removal of thread veins than laser therapy. The skin is treated safely and effectively using microwave technology. The microwaves penetrate the tissue to approximately 0.5-2mm, which has no adverse side effects.

After the procedure

We recommend walking and moving your legs as it is important to prevent the formation of blood clots. You’ll be asked to wear compression stockings or bandages — usually for about two weeks — to maintain compression on the treated veins.

Dr Newman’s currently have 7 other Thread Vein clinics operating around the UK: Harley Street London, Manchester, Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle and Belfast.

PRICE: Consultation – £195 Treatment – £395

“Dr. Sheila O’Neill and her team quite literally saved my life. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Diagnosis of a serious condition that had been misdiagnosed by three hospitals took less than 2 weeks, including an MRI. Setting aside the professionalism, they are also just extremely nice people. Imagine a GP that truly cares and will be calling the patient after hours to see how they are getting on – that is what I got from Dr. Sheila O’Neill. There are no superlatives that adequately describe the service. Great. Fantastic. Superb.”

I would like to thank Dr O’Neill very much for her time today: I get the impression that she is a very caring professional, knowledgeable and reassuring, and that she makes explaining conditions crystal clear, which is exactly what is needed for an anxious patient like myself. The staff that I met were all extremely welcoming, well-groomed and helpful too. Add to this the very relaxing and beautifully scented ambience and it was really a truly positive and pleasant visit. Thank you.

“I have had persistent neck and shoulder discomfort for some time. Regular visits to my local GP did not help. I was recommended to see Dr Sheila O’Neil who gave me a check-up and recommended that I see her physiotherapist colleague, Vicky Graham. I have had three sessions of physiotherapy and have regained full mobility in my neck and shoulders and feel a great deal better. I am very grateful to Dr Sheila and expect, with my husband, to sign up with her as regular patients.”

We took our 2 year old son in to see Dr O’Neill for a meningitis B vaccination recently. Due to shortages of the vaccine, we had been on a waiting list with a well-known high street pharmacist for months without knowing when they would get stock in. We came across Glasgow Medical Rooms who had the vaccination and we managed to get our son booked in the next day. The clinic was very smart and easy to access in the city centre too. Dr O’Neill was great at dealing with our toddler. It was a relief to get the jabs sorted so quickly and would highly recommend the service to others.”
