Microsclerotherapy (Leg Veins)
Microsclerotherapy is used to treat thread veins on the legs by injecting a substance known as sclerosant. This substance causes a swelling in the vein wall which over a couple of weeks will encourage the vein to either become less visible or making it not visible at all. This treatment is commonly used on the legs however for thread veins on the face we offer the IPL Foto Facial treatment as a small amount of scarring can occur with Microsclerotherapy.
Frequently Asked Questions
A single blood vessel may need to be injected more than once but this is dependent upon its size. We recommend having the next injection done 8 weeks later. Most patients do require between 2 and 6 treatments at 8 week intervals.
Please note support tights need to be worn day and night for 1 week after treatment.
Whilst having the treatment you may experience some pain or burning from the injection site and following the procedure you may experience some restlesness during the night due to swelling of the vein walls. Where the injections have been done these may look like insect bites and may occasionally itch.
