Microsclerotherapy

(Leg Spider Vein Removal)

Microsclerotherapy is the technique used to treat spider veins or thread veins of the legs. It is a relatively straightforward procedure which involves injecting a liquid into the veins which 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. Thread veins on the face are better treated with thermovein or sclerotherapy treatment

 

As thread veins and spider veins are minute, a tiny needle is used to inject small amounts of sclerosant, which is the liquid that destroys the veins.
