Sclerotherapy

July 29, 2013 by

We’ve had an influx of patients recently seeking treatment for varicose veins. All our vein treatments require compression stockings to be worn for 2 weeks, so now is the time to get those veins done – before the warmer weather makes it more uncomfortable.

Microsclerotherapy is a procedure involving the injection of small veins with a sclerosing solution. A very fine needle is used so it feels something like a mosquito bite. Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy is used for larger veins. A sclerosant solution is mixed with air to form a detergent like foam. This allows us to treat a greater area of vein with a given volume of sclerosant. It is useful as an adjunct or alternative to Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation.

Call us now to make an appointment. All initial consultations are bulk billed (no cost to patient).
