Sclerotherapy The Future of Surface and Varicose Vein Removal

By Grove Beauty Clinic


Introduction A revolutionary new treatment is permitting varicose vein sufferers to stop concealing blemished legs and enjoy pain-free pins, without needing to endure painful and incapacitating vein-stripping surgery. Sclerotherapy, or foam vein removal, is a ground-breaking leg vein removal technique that is altering the face of surface and varicose vein removal for victims of this unappealing and often agonising complaint.


What is Sclerotherapy? Scalerotherapy is a non-surgical choice for vein removal with no requirement for a general anaesthetic and is practically pain free with a high level of success rate. In clinical trials, 56% did not need an additional treatment. A swift procedure with a three day recovery time and no reduced movement following leg vein removal, it is also suitable for thread or surface vein removal. Preceding Sclerotherapy, the only options for leg vein removal were vein stripping surgery, a painful and costly procedure with a recovery time of many weeks. The other option, laser technology, is much better as a non-surgical option and with a recovery period of just eight days.


How does it work? Varicose veins are damaged veins that fail to carry the blood up the legs, triggering it to pool, swell and become enormously painful. Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical leg vein removal procedure that encompasses injecting chemical foam into the problematic or defective vein. The foam inflames and blocks the vein, which in turn, kills it. If only surface vein Sclerotherapy is appropriate for both varicose and surface vein removal removal is necesand it is obtainable at two levels. A surgeon must treat varicose veins; this sary, the patient can be done on the NHS or privately. To treat surface veins, a less severe can opt for specialbut still unpleasant varicose vein, sclerotherapy can be controlled by an ised treatment at experienced microsclerotherapist. If a varicose vein is present, the surgeon must first treat this. If only surface vein removal is necessary, the patient can opt for specialised treatment at Grove Beauty Clinic.
