Microsclerotherapy

Microsclerotherapy is the most common treatment for spider/ thread veins in the legs that we perform at HHC Vein clinics

So, what is microsclerotherapy treatment for thread and spider veins?

The treatment works by a mild chemical solution being injected into the affected vein or capillary.

The sclerosing agent irritates the walls of the vessel, causing it to collapse. The body then reabsorbs the vein and blood is re-routed to a healthy vein, restoring proper venous circulation in the area.

A single sclerotherapy treatment session involves a number of localised injections in order to collapse the spider veins in one area.

"Crucially she listened to my concerns and was able to be open and honest about what we could achieve"

Really happy with my initial consultation with Regina. Regina not only took me through the whole process step by step but crucially she listened to my concerns and was able to be open and honest about what we could achieve with my hair density.

"Both the doctor and the technicians were fantastic from start to finish"

Very happy with my experience. Did a combined FUT and FUE transplant. Both the doctor and the technicians were fantastic from start to finish. Would recommend to anybody planning to do the same thing.

How it works

Our expert team are on hand to advise you on the best treatment to suit your needs.

Interventional procedures performed by consultant vein specialists at HHC Vein Clinic’s are designed to restore proper venous blood flow and eliminate varicose and spider veins from venous circulation in a safe, efficient and cost effective manner. The best treatment for you will depend on a number of things:

  • Type of vein abnormality (spider or varicose vein)
  • Size (how large they are in diameter)
  • Source and location of veins involved (for legs it can be thigh, ankle or behind the knee. Abnormal veins can even appear on the hands, face, breasts, back, and genital areas)
  • Severity or concentration of veins
  • Skin texture & colour

Is one Microsclerotherapy session all that I’ll need to treat my veins?

The number of sessions required varies from patient to patient, depending on the number of veins treated, ability to heal, and the cosmetic result desired. Sometimes Microsclerotherapy can be used in isolation and for other patients its used as part of a treatment plan that involves one or more of our other market-leading treatments for veins, such as EVLA or Foam Sclerotherapy.
