Microsclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment to improve the appearance of these veins. It involves the introduction of a solution into the lumen of unsightly blood vessels, causing these to thrombose and consequently stop the flow of blood through them.Most women are concerned with the cosmetic appearance of these veins, but there are frequently associated symptoms such as itching, burning, aching and throbbing. The symptoms are often worse at certain times of the menstrual cycle. In addition, the presence of thread veins may indicate an abnormality of the venous system, which may require further investigation.
This is not a painful procedure. The injections are made superficially with a tiny needle. Some people feel nothing, some little stings. This will vary from person to person.How does the treatment work? A solution is injected into the veins. This causes the lining of the vein to swell and become sticky. Compression is applied to help close the veins. Over a period of time the vein will heal closed and fade away. In rare cases the treatment may not work.
The injections will cause some redness and welts, possibly with irritation. Your legs may look bruised. The veins may also look worse before they look better. Sometimes a darker colour appears under the skin, but by day 10 to 14 you will see an improvement. Within 4 to 6 weeks the veins will look very much as they did before the treatment and the full benefit will be seen after approximately 12 weeks.
All medications carry a risk of allergic reaction. It is common for there to be some immediate itching and redness at the site of the treatment. This will pass within a few hours. Serious allergic reactions are extremely rare. If the solution irritates tissue surrounding the vein blistering can occur although this is rare. As it heals a scab will form and this may leave a small scar. To minimise any risks of complications we recommend to wearing compression hosiery supports the healing vessels.
We recommend 2- 4 treatments over a period of 4-12 months, although this will depend on your response to the treatment, with some people achieving 60% to 80% improvement in appearance after just one session. It is not always possible to achieve 100% clearance.
The cost starts from £150 to £300 per session . Cost depends on the severity of the problem and how large is the treated area
