What is Microsclerotherapy?

It is the treatment of small veins and broken capillaries with tiny injections of a specially formulated solution. A small amount of the sclerosant is injected into the veins, using an extremely fine needle. The solution displaces the blood, ultimately closing down the veins which are then reabsorbed by the body. This not only removes the unsightly veins but improves circulation to the treated areas.

Before and After Photos

Which blemishes can be treated?

The vast majority of small clearly visible lines can be successfully treated. There are a number of names that one may use - thread veins, spider veins, broken capillaries. The correct medical term is Telangectiases. It is effective anywhere on the body, but particularly on the face and legs.


What causes these unsightly veins

Heredity is an important factor. Women develop them to a much greater extent than men. Prolonged standing may aggravate but not primarily cause them. Women who have major varicose veins seem to be more prone to telangiectases, but the converse does not necessarily follow; having small veins does not lead to varicose veins.


How long does the treatment take?

The treatment time will vary according to the extent of the area to be treated and the individual veins. Areas may need to be treated 2 or 3 times at fortnightly intervals to provide a permanent result. These veins will not return, but there is the possibility of new thread veins appearing in the vicinity.


What can I expect after the treatment?

On the first day after treatment the skin around the vein is a little pink and blotchy. After about 2 or 3 days the veins will begin to fade, but they may appear more prominent for the first week or two. The injection sites look like insect bites for a few days, but do not itch. 90% clearance is common, 100% disappearance is rare. Normal activity can be resumed straight away. One may wish to wear support hosiery if a large area on the legs has been treated. Avoid baths and swimming pools on the day of treatment.
