Microsclerotherapy is indicated for the treatment of thread or spider veins in the lower limbs. A sclerosant, e.g. Fibrovein, is injected into the vein in order to cause occlusion by inducing endothelial and venous wall damage. This in turn leads to fibrosis of the vein wall that will hopefully result in a contraction and the eventual obliteration of the vein lumen.
A suitable client will have:
- Uncomplicated leg thread veins
- Minimal symptoms apart from cosmetic disfigurement
- No untreated varicose veins
- No history of DVT/PE or hypercoagulable state (e.g. blood disorder, cancer)
- No secondary skin changes
Contraindications include pregnancy, breastfeeding, current infection, inflammation of the veins in the preceding 12 weeks, known allergy to sclerosants or inability to ambulate.
Following aftercare advice is extremely important:
- Undertake mild exercise twice a day for one week after treatment.
- Wear firm support tights for 7 days after treatment, ideally continuously for the first 3 days.
- Avoid sun exposure for 6/52 after treatment.
Veins have a potent regenerative capacity which can account for the “reappearance” of treated veins despite meticulous technique and appropriate sclerosant choice. Therefore more than one treatment may be required. Compression hosiery is a key to improving success.
Prices start from £200 per area (approximately palm-sized area). Please book a consultation for assessment of suitability.
