Spider veins on the legs - Sclerotherapy
If you hate putting on your bathing suit or shorts because of the unattractive spider veins on your legs then you're not alone. Many women and men suffer from these unsightly veins which form when blood flows in the wrong direction and no longer returns to the heart. If you thought they were just something you had to put up with then you may like to learn more about a very simple procedure called sclerotherapy. It makes spider veins disappear or at least become much smaller and less visible.
What is sclerotherapy?
The procedure involves micro injection of a TGA approved solution in to unwanted vein. The solution acts on the inner lining of the vein, causing it to collapse and shrink so that no more blood can flow through this unwanted vein. Within weeks the unused vein is absorbed by the body and eventually becomes barely noticeable or invisible.
Following the injection the leg is wrapped firmly in a compression bandage which helps the lining of the collapsed vein to stick together. Patients are advised to walk following the procedure which forces the blood to flow through other healthy blood vessels nearby.
Many women and men at Dermedica Perth Cosmetic Clinic have benefited from this very simple and safe procedure to reveal your younger, smoother looking legs.
