Sclerotherapy is a safe and well-established treatment for thread veins on the legs.
If you are troubled by unsightly leg veins you are certainly not alone – these are very common and can sometimes start at quite a young age. Unfortunately being female is a disadvantage here as very often pregnancy can be an aggravating factor. Typically these become a concern when the summer comes and you are thinking about your summer holiday.
The good thing is that they can be easily treated as long as there is no underlying problem in the deeper veins (a quick test at your consultation can assess this).
Sclerotherapy is our treatment of choice for leg veins and can give very nice results, but as treatment usually takes 6 weeks or so to take effect it is worth planning ahead.
- A solution is injected with a fine needle very superficially into the veins, causing the lining of the vein to swell and become sticky
- Compression is then applied to close the veins
- Over a period of time the vein will heal closed and fade away
Surprisingly to many, treatment is virtually painless.
