Varicose veins are a common problem, affecting up to 1 in 3 adults in their lifetime. They are usually a sign of an underlying venous insufficiency.
Thread veins can appear anywhere on the body but are mostly evidenced on the legs and face. They are more common than varicose veins, affecting up to 80% of adults.
Leg ulcers appear as broken skin in the lower leg or feet. We have been successfully treating venous leg ulcers for over 20 years.
Upfront and fixed prices. Find out exactly what you’ll pay before attending. Medical Insurance should fund varicose vein treatment.

Dr Guinness will be working at Veincentre Exeter on a Tuesday. If you book an initial consultation with Dr Guinness in Exeter, all your future appointments will be with Dr Guinness in Exeter throughout your treatment journey. As such, it is important to note that if you opt to go ahead with treatment this will be undertaken with Dr Guinness on a Tuesday (as will all future follow-up appointments).
Occasionally Dr Guinness may open up a list on another day, especially during our busy periods, however we cannot guarantee appointment dates on any other day than a Tuesday even if a previous appointment was on a different day. If you are unable to attend one of Dr Guinness’ dates and hence wish to switch consultants, you will need to attend and pay for a new consultation with another consultant prior to any treatment being undertaken. Please take care when choosing which consultant/ date to book.
Please note that due to holidays Dr Guinness may not be available every Tuesday.
