What Is Microsclerotherapy?
Microsclerotherapy is a technique used for the removal of surface and spider veins. It involves injections with a very fine needle of a sclerosing drug which irritates the lining of the veins causing the walls to stick together. Blood stops flowing through the veins, which are then absorbed by the body over a period of a few weeks. The blood is directed back to the deeper veins
Microsclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat thread veins (also known as "spider veins") on the legs. It is one of the most effective treatments available for the removal of thread veins.
What does a Microsclerotherapy treatment involve?
A very fine needle is used to inject a sclerosing agent directly into the thread vein. The sclerosing agent flows through the vein and stimulates the walls of the vein to swell up. The swelling prevents any blood to pass through the vessel and this causes the vein to shrivel up and disappear. Generally patients will require two to four sessions for thread veins to be completely eradicated.
