Cathy Stamp shared her story of treatment with the ClariVein® varicose vein removal system.
Cornwall-based Cathy developed uncomfortable and unsightly varicose veins after spending much of her busy working life on her feet, having worked as a commis chef before running luxury holiday apartments where her role includes day to day maintenance and lots of running around.
“My legs started aching about 17 years ago and progressively got worse.
“My veins got worse and worse and then, coming here, running around a lot, they ached and throbbed and it got to the point where on the beach everyone is in shorts and sundresses, I could not even wear tights because the veins would bulge through the tights.
“All the time I had to wear trousers because my legs looked so bad.”
After researching the options, Cathy decided to book a consultation for ClariVein® – a minimally invasive and pain-free procedure which combines which cleverly combines a mechanical action together with a chemical action to destroy the veins. She was pleased to hear that the treatment would not involve painful injections nor heat to seal the vein; and decided to go ahead.
“Because my veins were so bad they decided that they would do one leg at a time. I went in at the start of summer and had the first leg done. We had to change over half the chalets that day and then half the next with all the bedding and so on. We then had a party to go to in Hampshire the following day. Went there, had a good time, danced around, came home and went straight back into work and through all this I more or less forgot that I’d had the leg done.
“When I took my stocking off to look at my leg I was amazed – it was just like a miracle…
“I’d had a great big knot of unsightly veins at the back of my knee and they had completely gone.”
Cathy had the same procedure on the other leg 5 weeks later and again it was pain-free and problem-free.
“Now, I just love being on the beach. This year I am back in shorts and my wardrobe is full of dresses and I can wear nice 7 denier tights.”
She added that her husband was also pleased, saying:
“He says it is the best money we ever spent because he can see how happy I am.”
