Sclerotherapy Treatment Essex and London

We provide patients with expert sclerotherapy from our Essex clinic in South Woodford, close to Lomdon.

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a non-invasive injectable treatment used to treat and eliminate thread veins and spider veins. Sclerotherapy is the gold standard treatment for thread and spider veins, and the preferred alternative where surgical intervention is not required or advised.

How Safe is Sclerotherapy?

A more comfortable and cost efficient option for the patient, Sclerotherapy is a very safe procedure, which improves the symptoms of thread veins by applying a course of “liquid injections” containing a sclerosing agent directly into the affected area.

How Sclerotherapy Works

The sclerosing agent then impacts on the walls of the vein, causing it to swell and block. The action of inflaming and blocking the vein will prohibit any blood from passing through the vein, and deflame the raised and prominent vein, first reducing its appearance, and eventually through the diversion of blood, the thread vein will permanently close and disappear.
Once a thread vein has been successfully treated with sclerotherapy injections, it will not return.

Some research has shown that along with impact trauma, the hormone Oestrogen may play a role in the development of thread or varicose veins, and equally it has been suggested that those who avoid tight clothing may be at less of a risk of development of this condition.

Frequently asked questions

You will be suitable for sclerotherapy treatment if you have developed thread veins. If you have experienced varicose veins at all, now or in the past, you will not be suitable for this treatment. If you are undergoing cancer treatment or have a history of blood clots in the legs or lung, you will not be suitable for this treatment. A thorough consultation will take place prior to your treatment, taking full account of your medical history.

Time Clinic always ensure you undergo a full and thorough consultation before commencing with any treatment. If deemed suitable, Sclerotherpay is very safe and effective.

This treatment can cause a little discomfort, although a local anaesthetic may be used if required. You may find the area a little achy in the hours following treatment.

There is a small risk the skin may blister post treatment. Other minor side effects confined to the treatment area may include: swelling, redness or bruising, skin markings or itching. Some patients experience some dark discolouration of the skin, which usually goes away within 12 months.

sclerotherapy treatment needs little downtime, but we do advice you wear compression stockings following your treatment for 2 weeks. This will be discussed at your initial consultation.
