Procedure:

The different techniques:

EVLT (lasering) This is the main alternative to traditional varicose veins surgery. It is a minimally invasive day procedure that has good and reliable results. It uses a laser for a reasonably painless experience and fast healing. Local anaesthetic is administered and then a thin laser fibre (smaller than 1mm in diameter) is inserted into the vein, under the guidance of real-time ultrasound The fibre then administers laser energy to heat seal shut the veins. It is a 1 hour day case allowing to go home when it is finished. Minimal bruising and skin tightness may occur whilst the veins shrinkage and absorption takes place. A return to daily activities within a day or two is normal.

Microsclerotherapy is used to treat spider veins or thread veins on the legs resulting from the abnormal leg veins. It is a simple procedure which involves injecting a liquid into the veins that destroys them and causes them to disappear over time. It is suitable for use on thread veins on the legs or body, provided they are beneath the heart. We do not use it on the face. Microsclerotherapy is the most preferable treatment for thread veins below the heart and we often combine it with ND YAG lasering to get the best results.

FAQ

They are small blood vessels that run close to the surface of the skin and have the appearance of fine red, or purple squiggles. Other names are ‘spider veins’ or ‘broken veins’, the veins are in fact not broken but just enlarged. Telangiectasia is the medical terminology.

Large thread veins are more effectively treated using sclerotherapy. Unlike laser treatment, protection from the sun is not necessary. If the treated area is a little sore or dry, then the application of aloe vera gel may help. There is no evidence that the treatment can lead to skin disorders, nor an increased risk of cancer. However, treatment is not suitable during pregnancy, or for patients with epilepsy or a pacemaker.

This will depend on how many thread veins have appeared. Each session involves a 10-30 minute treatment. Most of our clients can be treated in 4 to 8 sessions making it a fast, effective and inexpensive treatment. The results will be obvious in most patients after 6 weeks after each session but for some people, it can take longer for the treatment to work.

Pre-existing suntans do not affect or prevent the sclerotherapy treatment but is advised that sun bathing could be detrimental for a 6 week period after the treatment.
