Micro Sclerotherapy Thread Vein Treatment for Legs
About the treatment.
Micro Sclerotherapy injection treatment is a long established, safe and reliable way of eliminating thread veins, spider veins, broken veins on the legs that are unsightly but cause no symptoms.
Sclerotherapy injections work by introducing a small amount of a mildly irritant solution into the spider vein making the wall stick to itself. The fine veins are then safely closed down and absorbed without harm.
An extremely fine needle is used to perform the injections.
Minor discomfort may be experienced during injections but it is rarely painful.
Usually several veins are treated per visit and repeat injections may be required if you have extensive spider or thread veins.
What to expect after the injections.
After injection of thread veins an inflammatory reaction is to be expected as part of the treatment process.
Overlying skin becomes red and sometimes raised, hard or tender. The veins may initially appear more prominent and darker in colour.
Some temporary discolouration like a bruise surrounding the injected flares develops.
These changes resolve over a period of weeks as the spider veins disperse and fade away.
It is important to appreciate that the full benefits of treatment may not be visible for 6-8 weeks after treatment.
