Sclerotherapy in Surrey

Sclerotherapy is a treatment for thread veins which are a red, blue or purple colour and appear on the surface of the body, particularly the legs.
Thread veins on the legs can be unsightly and occur in both men and women, but much more frequently in women. It is thought that the hormone oestrogen might play a role in their development. They can also occur after a blow to a particular area of the body or as a result of wearing tight clothing.

Sclerotherapy in Surrey Treatment Info

They can be treated by injection of a solution that causes the veins to disappear, or at least become much smaller. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel, causing it to swell and stick together.

Most people will require a course of treatments, with most vessels responding within three or four sessions.

There can be an overall improvement of 60-80 % following treatment.
However, the vast majority of our patients, who visit the clinic from throughout Surrey and Hampshire, report excellent results from their scar treatments.

It is important to realize that this treatment does not prevent new veins from emerging in the future. If new leg veins do surface with time then it may be necessary to have maintenance treatments.

Yes there are some minor side effects. Side effects may include skin markings, localised swelling, redness, bruising, itching and tenderness. Occasionally a darkening of the skin occurs which may take up to twelve months to resolve. Most of the side effects are minor and confined to the treated area.

After treatment we recommend that patients wear support compression stockings for two weeks. We also recommend refraining from exercise for at least two weeks.

Thread veins on the legs and face can also be treated with a laser or by cautery.

If you suffer from varicose veins, you should be assessed by a vascular surgeon who will be able to assess and treat the condition.
