Sclerotherapy treatments in Southport are primarily used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. The procedure involves injecting a solution directly into the vein. The Sclerotherapy solution causes the vein to scar, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades.
the benefits of Sclerotherapy:
If you have varicose veins or spider veins, Sclerotherapy may be a non-invasive option for you to remove these permanently. Varicose veins are swollen and enlarged veins that usually occur on the legs and feet. These veins may be blue or dark purple, and are often lumpy, bulging or twisted in appearance. Unfortunately, these are difficult to conceal or cover.
Often hereditary, varicose and thread veins commonly occur due to hormonal changes, such as during puberty, menopause, or pregnancy, and can be worsened by long periods of standing or obesity.
Sclerotherapy is an advanced non-surgical method of removing the appearance of veins in the legs with injections of a chemical solution known as a ‘sclerosing agent’. The solution irritates the vein lining, causing it to collapse and breakdown over several weeks. Your body then eliminates the damaged tissue through its natural healing response. Within weeks your confidence will be restored.
Sclerotherapy will drastically reduce the appearance of veins various and most patients will be able to return to normal activities instantly. You may require around 3-4 sessions for best results.
