About the treatment
Available at The Laser and Skin Clinic, Sclerotherapy leg vein removal treatment is a medical treatment used to treat and eliminate spider veins on legs including reticular veins. A solution called a sclerosing agent is injected into the veins to break down the vein wall, eliminating the unsightly appearance of the veins. About 80% of women suffer from spider veins on legs which are most often genetic but sometimes occur following pregnancy or after prolonged standing at work.
How does Sclerotherapy treatment work?
A tiny needle is used to inject a solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel, causing it to swell and stick together, and the blood to clot. Overtime, the body will absorb the treated vein and it disappears resulting in a vein free clearer complexion.
