Unsightly veins are a common problem amongst many women & men affecting half of people 50 years and older. They can be caused by a number of reasons including hormones, pregnancy, smoking, excessive sun exposure or can be hereditary. The deep red and bluish veins are seen on the lower leg, thighs and back of knee’s where there is greater body weight pressure.
What is Sclerotheraphy Vein Removal?
Sclerotherapy is an injectable treatment performed by a fully trained Doctor or Nurse, where they inject the veins with a solution called a fibrovein.
How Does The Treatment Work?
The fibrovein acts to cause slight irritation to the inner lining of the vessels injected, this irritation causes the walls to become sticky and when compressed is applied the vessel walls stick together and collapse. Once all the vessels collapsed, the body can no longer use them and absorbs them back into the system. As this absorption is a natural process it can take a number of months before the vessels fully disappear.
What Results Can I Expect from Sclerotherapy Vein Removal?
Immediately after the treatment you will see mild redness and perhaps a bruise on the treated area, you will then notice a gradual improvement in the treated area. It can take a few weeks before you see results as the vessels need to dissolve. Optimal results are seen 2 months after the treatment although you’ll see some improvement throughout this time. After your recommended number of treatments you can expect to see 60-80% improvement although some people see significantly higher results than this:
