About Spider Vein Removal – Sclerotherapy
Small veins, or spider veins, on the legs may seem fairly trivial to some people, but if you are unhappy with these unsightly and often embarrassing blemishes, you will be pleased to learn that they can be treated by an effective nonsurgical technique known as sclerotherapy.
While sclerotherapy has been established for many years, recent developments in the technology have significantly improved its application and effectiveness.
Utilizing the finest needle available (no wider than the thickness of a human hair) a solution is injected into the vein and gentle pressure is applied. The solution causes the vein to go into a minor spasm followed by atrophy (wasting away) and eventually, over the next few weeks, the vein disappears completely. If more than one area is treated with sclerotherapy, this is usually done one month apart.
Spider vein removal is a remarkably simple procedure, which involves no more than minor discomfort during treatment. If you’d like to find out more, talk to one of our competent nursing staff who will be happy to discuss the treatment in full with you. They will advise you on the best course of action and show you photographs of patients who have undergone this simple but very gratifying procedure.
