From two pregnancies, my body went through many negative changes. Although I lost the weight, my legs looked like a roadmap of bulging blue veins and red and brown spider capillaries, and it often felt like my leg muscles would cramp or be sore for inexplicable reasons. I was told I needed saline injections. A local dermatologist put me through an almost intolerable series of painful injections, sold me restrictive support hose, and made me lay in bed for a couple of days after each procedure. I wound up with marks on my legs that lasted months, and darken veins that could be seen through my skin for even longer. The procedure was successful at getting rid of only 10 to 20% of my veins and capillaries. So, I went to one of those laser clinics and saw their pamphlet’s beautiful before and after photos. I plopped down $1,400 for a series of laser treatments that were even more painful than the injections had been (they felt like someone was snapping rubber bands against my skin over and over again). After each treatment, nothing seemed to happen and they kept telling me the treatments were working but I wouldn’t be able to tell until they were all finished. After a year of treatments and misery, I saw no improvement whatsoever .
A couple of years later still hoping to someday be able to wear shorts or a swimsuit in public, very skeptical, I decided to give Dr. Bashy whose “Vein Specialist” ads I’d seen, a try. The injections were practically painless. I was shocked when he told me how reasonable his prices were and that I didn’t need support hose or to raise my feet for several days, but just take a fifteen minute walk each day instead. He told me to come back in a week so he could remove any marks left over from the injections, which to my surprise, he actually did, within two weeks my legs were 75% better! After two more treatments, my legs looked better than they did even before my pregnancies.
My life changed. shorts, bathing suits, and sun dresses became my summer wardrobe with not the least bit of self-consciousness… I now get comments all the time about my great legs! I could have never even imagined this a few years ago. My legs no longer cramp. To the contrary, they never feel heavy and tired like they did for so many years, that I didn’t even realize it wasn’t just part of normal ageing! I have taken up tennis which has become my main hobby. I have a whole new view on life and enjoy many more outdoor activities with my husband, children and friends. I highly recommend Dr, Bashy to anyone with varicose vein and broken capillary issues. Do not wait another minute. He holds the key to quality of the rest of your life!
