Thread Vein Treatments

Thread Veins

Whilst IPL can effectively treat a variety of vascular conditions, the vessels on the leg often need microsclerotherapy which is an injectable treatment. For smaller vessels they can be awkward to treat with sclerotherapy and IPL can be used but only on blood vessels that are very fine and close to the surface of the skin.

For deeper or thicker blood vessels, a sclerosant is injected to traumatise the lumen of the blood vessel. After treatment you will be asked to wear compression stockings to help the blood vessels stick together so that the body can break down these unwanted vessels. You will also be asked to walk for around 15 minutes following your treatment to help achieve optimum results.

Typically 4 treatments are required and a clearance of around 60% is possible. If any fine vessels remain following your sclerotherapy treatment a course of IPL will be carried out to help reduce their appearance. Due to the necessity to wear compression stockings you may wish to undergo this treatment during the colder season.
