FTT Skin Clinics – Microsclerotherapy Thread Vein removal.

Microscler​otherapy is the most common and effective procedure used to treat aesthetically unsightly leg thread veins. It is considered as the gold standard for treatment using a very fine needle to inject a dissolving liquid into the veins. The solution causes the walls of the vein to stick together. Blood is then prevented to flow through the veins which are then absorbed naturally by your body

Initial 30 minute consultation is needed to examine your legs, ask key medical questions, and explain treatment process and cost. A physical examination will be performed as well as measurement of your legs for your compression stockings. If Microscelerotherapy isn’t right for you which will be highlighted by an in-depth consultation with our nurse, we can refer you to on to partner Vascular Surgeons

What is microsclerotherapy?

Microsclerotherapy is an injectable treatment for visible veins on the legs. A sclerosant is injected into the veins using tiny needles; this is a substance which is irritating to vein walls and causes them to become inflamed or ‘sticky’. In the weeks following treatment the veins close off and disappear as the inflammation causes the walls to ‘stick’ together..

The treatment is not painful. The needles used are very small with little or no discomfort.

Varicose veins (large lumpy and visible veins) can be a sign of valve leakage within the big veins in your legs. Valve leakage (and resulting varicose veins) can render treatment less successful. As part of our consultation we will inform you if we think the procedure will not be suitable.

They must be worn continuously for 3 days (night and day) and during the day for 3 weeks.  Post treatment advice will be discussed at consultation. Daily routine can be resumed, however aerobic activity must be avoided for 24 hours.
