Microsclerotherapy Thread Vein Treatment

Microsclerotherapy is a safe, effective and well established treatment for thread veins on the legs. Although there are a number of alternative treatments available , it remains the most reliably successful of them all.

The treatment involves injecting a small amount of sclerosant with a very tiny needle into the vein. Sclerosant destroys the veins and causes them to disappear over time.

The appearance has usually improved noticeably by day 10 – 14. AT 4 – 6 weeks the thread veins should look pretty much as they did before injections and thereafter start improving. The full effect of the injection session is apparent at 12 weeks.

Thread Vein Causes

Thread veins are very small fine veins that are visible just beneath the skins surface. While most of us get naturally occurring thread veins over the years thread veins can be caused by hormonal changes during the onset of periods and often pregnancy.

Heredity has a strong influence in causing them. Hormonal surges as at the onset of periods and during pregnancy can also make thread veins appear.
