Sclerotherapy is a treatment option for thread veins in the legs – a common problem that, although harmless, often causes distress as the sufferer can feel self-conscious particularly when the veins appear on an exposed area of the legs. There’s no need to suffer from this embarrassing condition – sclerotherapy and foam injections are safe, effective procedures to treat the problem so that when summer comes you’ll have beautiful vein-free legs you’ll be proud to show off.
What is Liquid Sclerotherapy?
This is the preferred treatment for the small “spider veins” and sometimes for reticular veins. Liquid sclerotherapy is performed with the patient lying on a couch in the consulting room and involves injecting a detergent-like material (the ‘sclerosant’) into the veins so that they empty of blood and shrivel up.
Do I need to wear a stocking afterwards?
Following some (but not all) liquid sclerotherapy, we apply a firm bandage and compression stocking to the leg. The bandage can usually be removed after 4 -6 days but the stocking should be worn continuously for 14 days.
What our clients say
The Nakedhealth experience is very welcoming and friendly.
My wife and I travel a great deal and have treatments at other Clinics. We have never found anywhere that matches the standards at nakedhealth.
