Varicose Veins and Spider Veins Treatment – Sclerotherapy.
Treat unsightly varicose veins and spider veins using Sclerotherapy. Enjoy clearer skin on your face and the confidence to reveal your legs!
Sclerotherapy is a simple, non-surgical procedure where a solution is injected into varicose veins and spider veins to make them disappear. These results are not immediate taking up to 6 weeks with improvement continuing beyond this time. It is important to know that not all veins can be treated in this manner. In some situations Ultra-guided Sclerotherapy may be required, which we perform at Clinic 42. During consultation your treatment plan will be discussed by the Doctor.
Spider Veins are small fine lines, “starburst” clusters or a web-like maze of veins. Spider Veins are most common in the thighs, ankles, and feet. They may also appear on the face. Varicose Veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted. Varicose Veins and Spider Veins can occur in men or women of any age but most frequently affect women of childbearing age and older. Family history of the problem and aging increase one’s tendency to develop varicose and spider veins.
The causes of varicose veins and spider veins are not entirely understood. In some instance, the absence or weakness of valves in the veins, which prevent the backward flow of blood away from the heart, may cause the poor circulation. In other cases, weakness in the vein walls may cause pooling of the blood. Less commonly, varicose veins are caused by diseases such as phlebitis or congenital abnormalities of the veins. Venous disease is generally progressive and cannot always be entirely prevented. However, in some cases, wearing support hosiery and maintaining normal weight and regular exercise may be beneficial.
Whilst treatment of Varicose Veins and Spider veins is simple, all procedures must start with a thorough consultation with a Doctor.
