Dilated blood vessels, called telangiectasia or thread veins, are red, blue or purple in colour and appear on the surface of the body, particularly the legs. These vessels can be unsightly and larger ones can produce a dull aching of the legs after prolonged standing. If left untreated, the veins become heavier and are difficult to conceal.
To improve their cosmetic appearance, they can be treated by injection of a solution that will cause them to disappear, or at least become much smaller, leaving your legs smoother and even-toned. (Before and after image courtesy of webmd.com.)
Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for unsightly thread veins on the legs.
The treatment involves injecting the veins with a sclerosing solution which causes them to seize up internally.
After the treatment session the veins become red and more obvious, but over the following weeks, they are absorbed by the body and disappear or lighten in colour.
The end result will be clearer, less defined thread veins, with benefits seen after one session.
Most people will require a follow-up treatment, four to six weeks later. Advice will be given at consultation on the number of treatments required.
I offer a mandatory sclerotherapy consultation to patients which costs £40.00.
Sclerotherapy Treatments costs are £120.00 per single treatment.
