The use of the injection of irritant materials into dilated surface veins to scar (sclerose) them is a well established treatment, particularly on the legs.

Our doctors are trained in the use of Sclerovein and we are happy to arrange an appointment for you to see one of them so they can assess the extent of the problem and advise on investigation and treatment options. Sometimes it will be appropriate for you to have a Duplex Ultrasound examination of the leg veins to assess their competency and help us to advise whether microsclerotherapy is an appropriate treatment. It may be we will advise other techniques such as foam sclerotherapy, VNUS closure or even formal surgery and we have colleagues to whom we would refer you if required. Microsclerotherapy can be combined with laser treatment, particularly to deal with vessels too small to inject.
