frequently asked questions*

How does the treatment work?
A sclerosing agent is injected into the vein using a very fine needle. This damages the vessel lining causing causing the wall of the vessel to stick together. Blood stops flowing through the veins and the body treats them as damaged tissue which is slowly absorbed over a period of time.

What is the treatment like?
Each treatment session lasts 20-30 minutes. The needles used are very fine so discomfort is minimal and the treatment is generally painless. Once treated it can take between 2 weeks and 3 months for the veins to completely disappear.

How successful is sclerotherapy?
After treatment most patients can expect a 80-90% improvement in the treated vessel. The fading process is gradual with treated veins fading up to three months after the last treatment.

After the treament:
Normal activities can be resumed immediately.
Some patients with substantial reticular veins may be advised to wear support stockings for period of time after the treatment. You are recommended to walk as much as possible. Walking works the calf muscles and pumps blood through other vessels back to the heart. This reduces the pressure in the superficial vessels.

Will treated vessels recur?
Veins treated adequately by Sclerotherapy should not recur. However, the underlying problem is not corrected and therefore new vessels may appear with time. An annual review is recommended to detect development of new vessels, which can then be treated.*

How many treaments will I need?
Several sessions may be required depending on the extent and size of the veins. On average veins on the legs require between 2-4 treatment sessions. This will be discussed during your consultation.*

Are there any side-effects?*
Even when a highly experienced physician is performing the treatment, there are a number of possible side effects.

Please avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E and Aloe Vera preparations for at least 10 days.
