injecting a chemical into the veins using tiny needles. This destroys the vein
making the walls of the veins fibrose (or "stick") together. After
treatment on the legs, you will need to wear compression stockings for 2 weeks.
As microsclerotherapy closes the
veins by inflammation of the wall, most patients get a patch of inflamed skin
over the site of the injection which lasts for up to two weeks. This
inflammation is actually very good – it is the body’s way of removing the dead
vein. The area then settles down but the full benefit can take up to 12 weeks
to be seen. After that you will find that the veins often continue to improve
for up to a year after the treatment. Depending on the number of thread veins
on the legs, several sessions may be needed to get the required results, but
usually two will be enough.
Does it Work?
Compared with other treatments,
microsclerotherapy gives the best results. It is the gold standard for
treatment of thread veins, with 95% of our patients seeing an improvement with
a good or very good result
