Microsclerotherapy

Don’t hide your thread veins. Banish them.

Microsclerotherapy is a simple, minimally invasive and effective method of thread vein removal. The procedure involves injections of a harmless solution through a micro-needle into the veins, causing them to gradually fade. The treatment makes thread veins appear fainter and, in some cases, disappear altogether. The effect is usually permanent although new thread veins may develop in the future.
Methods for removing disfiguring veins made significant advances in the 1920s when a treatment for varicose veins (sclerotherapy) was modified to achieve thread vein removal. This treatment is what we now call microsclerotherapy.
