Sclerotherapy offers a solution for those seeking to diminish the appearance of spider veins or telangiectasia – those small, unwelcome veins that can appear in shades of blue, red, or purple on various body parts. Our sclerotherapy treatment involves the skilful administration of microinjections containing a specialised solution that prompts the targeted veins to shrink and collapse over time, gradually fading their visibility.

Ideal for veins under 4mm in diameter, our experienced team will thoroughly examine your veins to identify underlying factors and ensure a tailored approach. If necessary, an ultrasound scan may be performed before treatment. Achieve smoother and even-toned skin, boosting your confidence and enjoying the freedom to bare your legs with pride.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does sclerotherapy last?

Treated veins fade away permanently, but new ones might appear over time, making the effect temporary. How long your results last will depend on factors such as genetics, weight, health and lifestyle.

How soon will I see the results?

You should notice the results of this treatment quite quickly. After addressing spider veins, changes can become visible within three to six weeks following your initial session. Visible outcomes take three to four months to dissipate for varicose veins. The speed of the results depends on how effectively your body responds to the salt-based solution used in sclerotherapy.

What are the potential risks and complications of sclerotherapy?

Potential risks and complications can include the formation of blood clots in veins, severe inflammation, allergic reactions to the solution, skin injury leading to a small scar, pigmentation irregularities resulting in brown spots, and the possibility of fine reddish, blood vessels appearing around the treated area, known as telangiectatic matting, which might require further injections.

Is sclerotherapy right for me?

Individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding and have certain blood-borne diseases, circulatory problems, heart conditions, or diabetes might not be suitable for sclerotherapy. It’s important to note that not all affected veins will disappear post-treatment. Additionally, the procedure targets currently visible veins and does not prevent the emergence of new ones in the future.

How long is recovery after the treatment?

After sclerotherapy, you can resume regular activities with minimal limitations. To facilitate healing, it’s recommended that you avoid strenuous exercises for three to five days. Any mild discomfort and bruising should generally subside within two to six weeks.

Can sclerotherapy be used to treat spider veins?

Sclerotherapy can diminish the appearance of spider veins, telangiectasia, or other unwanted veins on the body.

What does a sclerotherapy procedure involve?

Our sclerotherapy procedure involves the administration of microinjections containing a specialised solution that prompts the targeted veins to shrink and collapse over time, working to fade in visibility gradually.

What size veins are best suited for sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is ideal for veins under 4mm in diameter. Our team will conduct a thorough examination of your veins to identify any underlying factors and ensure a tailored approach.

Does sclerotherapy destroy veins?

Sclerotherapy works by injecting an irritant chemical into the affected vein. This prompts the vein to spasm and collapses in on itself. In time, the walls of the collapsed vein heal together, and the sealed vein can no longer carry blood.

Do I need to wear compression garments post-treatment?

For up to ten days after treatment, you will need to wear compression stockings for most of the day, particularly when you are on your feet. It’s encouraged that patients walk around for at least half an hour every day for the first two weeks after their treatment.
