Leg Veins

Feel confident in your skin

A treatment designed to eliminate unwanted Leg Veins.

Leg Veins treatment reduces the appearance of veins which may be causing discolouration of the skin.

Process

Leg Veins treatment or ‘Sclerotherapy’ is a common procedure used to treat small yet unsightly clusters of red, blue or purple veins that most commonly appear on the thighs, calves and ankles. This treatment helps to improve the symptoms associated with varicose and spider veins, such as aching, burning and swelling.

Sclerotherapy is administered by injecting the sclerosing solution directly into the veins, causing them to collapse and fade. The medication is injected through a very fine needle which irritates the lining of the blood vessels, causing the blood to clot and turn into scar tissue. Over time, this scar tissue fades and discolouration is reduced, improving skin texture and tone.

Sclerotherapy treatment can take as little as 15 – 30 minutes. You may experience a slight burning sensation or cramping after the sclerosant is injected, however, this should only last a minute or two. A series of treatments may be required, depending on the severity of your condition. A treatment plan will be tailored to your concerns during our complimentary consultation.

Preparation

In preparation for your Leg Veins treatment, do not apply moisturiser, sunscreen or oil to your legs on the day of the procedure. Avoid Vitamin-E, aspirin, ibuprofen and other anti-inflammatory medications for 48 – 72 hours before treatment. Consider wearing comfortable shorts during treatment and bring loose-fitting pants or a long skirt to wear home. Our trusted professionals will advise you on how to best prepare your skin during your one-on-one consultation.

Aftercare

Compression tape will be applied during and after the procedure. Tight-fitting support hose may also be prescribed to guard against blood clots and to promote healing. It is normal to experience cramping in the legs for 24 – 48 hours post-treatment. This temporary problem usually doesn’t require medication.

It is important to walk to prevent blood clots from forming in the deep veins of the legs. Prolonged sitting and standing should be avoided, as should heavy weight lifting and strenuous physical activity for 3 days after the treatment.
