Sclerotherapy  

Leg Veins - known as thread veins, are superficial and vary in colour from red to purple. Over a period of time the veins can become more dense and can spread quite rapidly. They are not varicose veins and can therefore be treated by Sclerotherapy.

 

Face veins - brown veins or capilliaries normally appear around the nose and cheek area. These unattractive markings usually appear where the skin is finest and can successfully be removed by Sclerotherapy.

 
Vein Treatment  
Known by many names including Telangiectasias and broken vessels called Sclerotherapy is the most commonly performed Cosmetic procedure
 
No one knows for sure what causes these veins but some of the causes are:  
Runs in families
Long periods of standing or sitting
Women are more prone than men
 
Unsightly leg veins can be a problem for men and women. Varicose veins are enlarged vessels that have wideness as a result of weakness in the wall which bulges. Spider veins are the small superficial purple or red veins stretching like a web under the skin.
 
The spider veins can be removed without posing a health problem in a short period of time.  
Recent Cosmetic trend is to combine Scleortherpay with Laser Treatments especially for the smaller veins in the legs.  
Facial Veins are better treated with Lasers especially veins on the nose and cheeks. Redness in the chest can also be treated with Lasers.
 
Leg Veins:  
How is it done?  
Usually takes 20 minutes as generally no more than two areas are treated at a time.  
The sclerosing agent is injected into the vein. This turns white and then closes allowing no more blood to enter that vein. Pressure is applied to disperse the solution. Each vein may need two or more injections  
Following the treatment pressure is applied to the injected area for 24 to 48 hrs to prevent bleeding, using a pressure bandage. Rest is generally not necessary and you should walk daily for at least 20 minutes but avoid vigorous activity for the first day or two.
 
Results are more apparent, after several weeks and you may need additional treatments.  
During laser treatment the laser energy is absorbed by hemoglobin and converted to energy. Immediately after treatment the blood coagulates and vessel wall collapses.After treatment over a period of time the vessel is reabsorbed by the body and it disappears.
 
The resulting heat coagulates or clots the blood and destroys the function of the vein. This process does not affect the surrounding tissue.
 
Usually the treatment is not performed on tanned skin. But you may wish discuss this with your doctor to know what is needed for you to have the best result.
 
Are there any side effects?  
Complications are unusual  
Mild discoloration may occur at the site of the injection which will disappear in 6 - 12 months  
New spider veins may appear in untreated areas.  
Healing is a gradual process. Results will be apparent within a few weeks after your procedure but the full effect and treatment may take several months. Sometimes it is combined with the laser treatments.
