Vein removal treatment works to successfully remove thread views that can cause problems for men and women alike, as over 50% of the population will develop vein threads during their lifetime. These veins can often become unsightly for those who suffer from them, which makes vein removal treatment a logical and practical way to deal with the problem. These tiny veins can appear on the nose, cheeks and legs. They can appear both red and purple in colour and are also commonly known as spider veins, broken veins and capillary veins.
These veins can be caused by a variety of factors including weather, steroid creams and hormonal changes. No matter what your causes of vein threads, our treatment can help you rid yourself of them. The medical name for this treatment is Sclerotherapy, which involves an injection of salt solution into the problematic vein.
The small procedure is carried out using a minimally invasive small needle and takes no longer than 30 minutes. The amount of veins that are targeted during one session depends on their volume and dispersion, so your professional with judge this.
Preparation for this procedure will involve doing minimal physical activity prior to the treatment, and perhaps stopping certain medications. Aftercare will be much the same to this but this again will depend on the individual. You will be instructed to wear hosiery that will compress the veins in order to make the treatment the most effective it can be.
Once your treatment has been completed you should avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, or other anti-inflammatory drugs for at least 48 hours. Paracetamol can be used if really needed. There also other things that you should avoid for 48 hours: hot baths, hot compresses, whirlpools or saunas, and direct exposure to sunlight. Patients who have received this treatment have found that 50% to 80% of veins that are targeted vanish after the correct amount of sessions.
Their are side effects, such as itching which can occur 2-3 days after the procedure. Other risks will be explained by your professional.
