Sclerotherapy Leg Veins

Sclerotherapy can treat large veins, either alone, or in conjunction with less invasive outpatient surgery. Sclerotherapy is the recommended treatment for smaller accessory veins to prevent their deterioration into larger bulging varicose veins. Sclerotherapy is without parallel the gold standard and most effective in the treatment of leg veins.

This 52 year old lady had protruding Varicose Veins on her legs.


After extensive Sclerotherapy treatments all the unsightly veins were treated.


As a result of working many years as a beauty therapist, this patient suffered from severe and painful Varicose Veins.


Sclerotherapy treatments were performed to dissolve the Varicose Veins which made a dramatic difference to the patients legs.

How does it work?

A solution (sclerosant) is injected into the abnormal vein using tiny micro-needles. This sclerosant solution starts off a process whereby the body closes and then contracts the offending vein so that it disappears. Veins which are easily visible are injected without the use of ultrasound as a guide.

Foam Sclerosant

Updated technology on this technique is to use a sclerosant foam rather than a liquid. The foam itself is visible on the ultrasound screen whereas the plain solution is not. Using the foam has the following advantages.

  • Foam is visible on the ultrasound screen and therefore its passage up the offending vein can be monitored to the level required.
  • The foam displaces the blood in the vein rather than moving with it as a solution would. There is therefore direct contact between the foam and the vein walls and therefore a more effective sclerosing effect on the vein.
  • The use of the foam allows the use of smaller amounts of sclerosing medicine to achieve an even better result.
  • Use of the foam leads to an easier after treatment course, with less discomfort and quicker healing.

What should I expect after Varicose Vein Treatment Sclerotherapy?

You are provided with an after hours direct number in the event you may have any questions or concerns you wish to speak to us about.

Some bruising can be expected. Some patients bruise more easily than others. Apply Arnica ointment (supplied by us or any health food store) to assist with the bruising if any. Some veins could turn dark soon after treatment and temporarily look worse before they look better. Occasionally a brownish stain results, however, this does fade with time or with the help of medication from the Doctor.

You may experience tenderness and redness along sections of the injected veins after the treatment. This is not an infection. Walking rather than sitting down will reduce the soreness.

Sometimes an oral anti-inflammatory agent is required for quicker relief. Please contact the Clinic if further advice is needed. Some lumps may form along sections of the injected veins. Please don't be concerned as this is quite normal. The Doctor may treat them when you return for your next visit or subsequent visits.

Blisters can sometimes appear over the skin. A dry dressing with a Melolin pad held on with Micropore tapes and changed daily is usually all that is required.

Generalised rash or itching particularly of the palms of the hands or soles of the feet most often mean an allergic reaction. If this occurs please contact the Clinic.

We recommend that you should walk up to 30 minutes daily whilst attending the Me Clinic for treatment is recommended and you should also continue with your normal activities.

We advise that vigorous exercise (e.g. aerobics, running) should be avoided in the first 24 hours and also when wearing compression-wrap bandages. If you should go on a long car or plane trip, you must walk for at least 5 minutes every hour during the trip.

Following treatment, your legs may need to be taped or bandaged and thereafter you should wear your stockings where advised by the doctor, whenever standing. The stockings may be removed when lying in bed or temporarily when showering, i.e. on during the day, off, at night. They may need to be worn for a number of weeks after treatment. The doctor will advise you.
