Facial Vein Sclerotherapy

How do Facial Veins Sclerotherapy treatments work?

Facial Veins Sclerotherapy is the most commonly used non-surgical treatment of choice for larger and smaller veins, as it is very effective and has minimal down time.

A solution (sclerosant) is injected into the abnormal vein using tiny micro-needles. This treatment does not require an anaesthetic.This sclerosant solution starts off a process whereby the body closes and then contracts the offending vein so that it disappears. In effect these tiny microinjections of sclerosant cause the treated veins to collapse and disappear. Veins which are easily visible are injected without the use of ultrasound as a guide.

Sclerotherapy has proven to be an effective treatment for Facial Veins.

What should you expect after Facial Veins Sclerotherapy treatment?

With Sclerotherapy some bruising may develop as some patients bruise more easily than others. You should apply Arnica ointment (provided to you by our Doctors) to the bruised area to minimise discomfort and swelling. The treated veins may initially darken before fading. This is the reason why Laser treatment for Facial Veins is considered the golden standard.

Following any treatment, your skin may feel tender for several days. You should follow your Doctor's instructions, and avoid any harsh skin cleansers and the use of sunscreen is essential. Any scratching or rubbing of the skin should be avoided.
