Sclerotherapy4

Foam sclerotherapy is the procedure of injecting a diluted drug, mixed into foam with air, directly into the varicose veins.

The foam displaces the blood in the veins and then the drug destroys the cells in the lining of the veins. The veins shrivel up and your body naturally breaks down and absorbs the dead tissue.

  • Permanently removes veins
  • Removes discolouration
  • Destroys vein cells

The Process

Your initial consultation the veins to be treated are identified. The procedure involves a small needle (butterfly) being inserted into the vein(s) and the foam solution injected. The foam displaces the blood in the vein and attacks the lining of the vein wall, causing the vein to shrivel up. The shrunken veins are then broken down and absorbed gradually by your body. Due to the series of tiny injections involved in the foam sclerotherapy procedure, some patients find them uncomfortable. The sclerosant used can often sting slightly.
