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.

Am I suitable for sclerotherapy treatment?
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.

Is sclerotherapy painful?
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.
sclerotherapy side effects or risks?
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.
How much downtime to recover is usually needed after sclerotherapy?
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.

Dr Bawa did an excellent job. He took the time to discuss what I wanted, come up with recommendations and go through the risks. He was reassuring throughout the procedure and took his time to make sure he achieved the best results possible. Although it’s only been a short time since I’ve had my treatment, I’m really pleased with the results. I would highly recommend Dr Bawa.
