Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is one of those words that you may have heard but may not be sure what it means. It is simply a way of treating thread veins to improve the overall appearance of the skin. Here at Whitethorn Fields Mediclinic, sclerotherapy and thread vein removal are among our most popular treatments and if you feel that this is something that will benefit you, our professional and friendly team are on hand to guide you through the process.

Veins can appear near the surface of the skin and can be red, blue or purple in colour, leaving the sufferer feeling very self-conscious.

Sclerotherapy in Aylesbury – what is involved?

Sclerotherapy is a type of medicine which is injected into the visible blood vessels to encourage them to subside and will help to make them far less visible. The procedure itself is very straightforward and you can rest assured that sclerotherapy at Whitethorn Fields Mediclinic is always administered by a qualified professional – you will never feel as though you are not in safe hands!

The sclerosing agent will be injected into the vein at different points and the solution acts as an irritant on the lining of the vein which can lead the vein wall to collapse. The body will then absorb this vein that is no longer needed and it will no longer be visible.

Sclerotherapy in Aylesbury – what do I need to know?

Having visible veins is something that can sap your confidence and we understand just how difficult this can be. However, you will also find out just how important this treatment can be for your health. Removing the veins can help to reduce problems including eczema, blood clots and the breakdown of the skin and ulceration.

Recovery time from sclerotherapy is fairly short. Our team will explain to you that no anaesthetic is needed and immediately after the treatment you will find that you can go about your normal daily routine with little disruption. After care may include the wearing of compression stockings and the use of a compression wrap in order to make sure that the veins stay in a collapsed form. You may notice some bruising afterwards but this will fade. However, if you have any concerns our team is on hand to help.

Here at Whitethorn Fields Mediclinic we understand that every client is different and has different requirements. It is often recommended that more than one sclerotherapy treatment is carried out but this will be different for everyone. However, treatments should be spaced at least four weeks apart to achieve the best results. An average of between two and four sessions is adequate for most people so that they can achieve the results that they are looking for.

Restoring your confidence is something that our expert team can help with and thread vein removal is not the only therapy that could benefit you.
