Sclerotherapy is a very safe and well-established treatment for removing unsightly thread and spider veins. It is a simple non-surgical procedure that usually takes 30 to 40 minutes and is performed under local anaesthesia.

This solution causes swelling, which closes off the veins and prevents blood from flowing through them. As a result, blood is rerouted through healthier veins, and the discolored, swollen veins are eventually absorbed by your body.

Benefits of sclerotherapy include

Reduction of unsightly spider veins

One common reason people seek vein treatments is to get rid of unsightly spider veins. Spider veins can cause purple or blue veins to spread across your legs, face, or hands

Reduction of small varicose veins

This treatment is also effective for treating small varicose veins. This not only improves the appearance of your legs, but it can also relieve the ache caused by varicose veins

Results without surgery

One of the most appealing aspects of sclerotherapy is that it does not require surgery. This eliminates the need for incisions or stitches.

Easy recovery period

Because sclerotherapy is not surgery, there will be no lengthy recovery period. Because this procedure is performed as an outpatient, you will be able to return home shortly after the procedure.

Sclerotherapy injections are precise

We can use ultrasound to direct the sclerosant exactly where it needs to go, even if the problematic vein is deep beneath your skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical vein treatment in which a chemical foam sclerosant is injected into varicose or thread veins. The treatment works by collapsing the affected blood vessels, which then adhere to one another and form virtually invisible scar tissue.

How many sessions are required?

It varies from person to person, but 2-4 treatments are usually required for the best results. 1-2 sessions are sufficient for patients with a few veins. Where veins are more numerous and extensive, more treatments are required.

Does sclerotherapy hurt?

Each injection causes a minor sting that lasts only a few seconds. Most people tolerate the procedure well and do not require anesthesia. The majority of patients report that the procedure is far less painful than they expected.

How long does sclerotherapy take?

Treatment sessions are usually between 30 and 60 minutes long. This varies according to the practitioner.

Is there any downtime?

There is no recovery time and you can resume your normal activities immediately, though you should avoid aerobic exercise for 24 hours and wear class 2 compression stockings for three days.

Are there any complications or side effects?

Sclerotherapy has few side effects other than minor discomfort and bruising. Severe allergic reactions are uncommon. A few people may experience severe itching at the injection site.

Is sclerotherapy safe?

Sclerotherapy is a remarkably safe and effective technique when performed correctly by a specialist. Common side effects are typically transient and well tolerated
