Research at The Whiteley Clinic is directed at understanding how veins work, what goes wrong with them, venous disease and how techniques that we use affect the veins that we treat.
We look at the way veins are investigated and treated and conduct research studies to discover how each of these areas can be improved. In addition, we take all of the new devices and techniques that are introduced to treat veins and we perform research studies on them, finding out which ones work and which ones do not. For those devices and techniques that do work, we research how they can be used most effectively and in what sort of veins they work best. Interestingly there is not a single technique that can treat all the different things that can go wrong in the leg.
Years of research has taught us that varicose and thread vein free legs take time. If you have the very simplest thread veins, you will need a minimum of eight weeks before you get the cosmetic result you are after and they will look even better the more time they have to heal. For the 90% of people who will have underlying problems, the answer is to get your scan performed as soon as possible so that we can plan your treatment and give you the best possible result for next summer.
To give yourself a great chance of having great legs by next summer, book your initial appointment and scan today!
