Sclerotherapy is a safe, painless and well established treatment for the removal of thread veins on the legs. A solution is injected with a very tiny needle, very superficially into the veins, causing the lining of the vein to break down. The damage to the vein wall triggers a healing response which over several weeks causes the vein to close and fade away.
EXPECT: The results are not immediate. The veins look worse before they
get better and the treatment may need to be repeated at 4-8 week
intervals. Patients Should expect to see a 80% improvement in the appearance of
the veins between 1-4 treatments.
What to expect
The results are not immediate. The veins look worse before they get
better and the treatment may need to be repeated at 4-8 week intervals.
Most patients see a 60-80% improvement in the appearance of the veins
between 1-4 treatments.
Are the results permanent?
The veins that are successfully treated will not reappear but this is
the treatment for the symptoms and is â?¨not a cure for the underlying
causes so new veins may develop over time.
Is this a safe treatment?
This is a very safe treatment but as with any other treatment, not
entirely without risk. This treatment is not suitable for everyone
therefore we will take a medical history and discuss the possible risks
and complications with you in your complimentary consultation.
You may resume normal activities immediately. You will be given
special hosiery to wear for a week after the treatment. You will be
advised to take a brisk 10 min walk immediately afterwards, to avoid
high impact exercise for 2 weeks, no steaming hot baths, showers, saunas
or sunbeds for 2 weeks and no waxing for 4 weeks.
