What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a treatment that targets spider and thread veins. A substance is injected directly into these veins, ultimately leading to their reduced appearance or complete disappearance.
What can Sclerotherapy be Used for?
Injection sclerotherapy can be used to reduce the appearance of thread and spider veins on the thighs and legs.
Please note that injection sclerotherapy should NEVER be used on the face as this can cause serious complications. We therefore, use a non-injection technique known as thermolysis, to treat thread and spider veins on the face, in addition to those small calibre veins on the thighs and legs (those that are too small for accurate targeting with the injection sclerotherapy needle). In thermolysis, very minute, carefully controlled amounts of heat are applied to the targeted areas, through an ultra-thin needle-like probe, which selectively targets the veins without piercing the skin.
What Makes us Different?
Your comfort is very important to us and, as is the case with all of our injection therapies, we only use the thinnest needles available on the market. Furthermore, we have more than one concentration of the injected substance, which we tailor for use based on the size of the targeted thigh/leg veins.
After the therapy on the legs/thighs, we use the finest quality, gentle compression bandages in order to maintain the effect of the therapy as you travel home or go about your daily activities. These are very discreet and can be worn under any type of clothing including tights.
We use our thorough knowledge of skin anatomy and physiology to carefully select each and every injection site leading to a more desirable outcome.
We allocate generous time slots for all of our therapies, enabling us to thoroughly explain the procedure, take detailed medical history and most importantly, to listen to all of your needs and expectations and to advise you on the best possible ways to achieve your desired effects. Furthermore, we take your aftercare very seriously; we always provide very detailed instructions about how to get the most out of your treatment. For example, the effects of this therapy are improved and enhanced when you wear specifically made compression stockings; we advise you on the exact type and design that is suitable for your individual needs. We also give you useful lifestyle modification advice in order to get the most out of your therapy and to reduce the chance of potential reappearance of the veins/appearance of new veins.
