Microsclerotherapy is the technique used to treat spider veins or thread veins of the legs. It is a relatively straightforward procedure which involves injecting a liquid into the veins which destroys them and causes them to disappear over time.
It is suitable for use on thread veins on the legs or body, provided they are beneath the heart.
The latest technology used to treat spider veins or thread veins.
As thread veins and spider veins are minute, a tiny needle is used to inject small amounts of sclerosant, which is the liquid that destroys the veins.
To achieve optimum results, the treated thread and spider veins need to be continuously compressed for 14 days and nights. This is the time needed for the body to turn the dying vein into scar tissue and is best achieved by wearing compression stockings.
Patients are encouraged not to remove the stockings until 15 days post procedure. If they are removed too early, blood will return into the vein and it will clot, leaving a brown staining. This staining can fade over the following months but sometimes it can become permanent.
As with all medical procedures, there can occasionally be complications and Microsclerotherapy might not give the results that are required.
90% success rate thread viens will improve with up to 4 treatment.
