Injection Microsclerotherapy is specifically reserved for treating small veins, including unsightly spider veins and small reticular veins. This treatment uses direct vision sclerotherapy (DVS), which, as the name suggests, is used to treat veins that are visible on the skin to the naked eye. The procedure involves injecting a sclerosant foam into these veins to reroute blood through other blood vessels, causing the diseased vein to collapse, harden, and ultimately heal; with the aim of making the vein disappear.

To enhance precision, doctors may utilize magnification goggles that help guide the very fine sclerotherapy needle into the visible veins. These magnification tools can be beneficial for targeting smaller veins more accurately and for ensuring the foam is delivered precisely where it is needed.

This treatment method is effective for improving the cosmetic appearance of the legs, reducing the visibility of varicose and spider veins while preventing potential complications that could arise if these veins remain untreated.

Although this treatment involves the use of needles, they are of such a tiny diameter that most of our patients do not report any pain or discomfort.

The ankle, foot and upper thigh region may be a little more sensitive but again most of our patients only report a slightly warm and tingly feeling. If you suffer from needle phobia or anxiety our doctors can discuss the various relaxing medications available to patients during your initial consultation.
