Direct Vision Sclerotherapy

What is Direct Vision Sclerotherapy?
Direct Vision Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive medical treatment whereby we inject a solution into the mini spider veins that are visible on the skin. Also known as Microsclerotherapy, this is the gold standard treatment of tiny, widespread spider or reticular veins that are extremely close to the surface of your skin and smaller than 3mm.
The diseased veins start to harden and dissolve until they disappear, leaving your skin looking beautifully clear and healthy. The term “sclerotherapy” comes from Greek, where the word “sclero” means “to make hard.” This procedure is not only safe but it’s highly effective, and most importantly – doesn’t hurt more than a mosquito bite!
Take the first step to clearer, healthier skin. Bye-bye, nasty-looking veins!

How is the Direct Vision Sclerotherapy performed?
During a session of Direct Vision Sclerotherapy, we use microneedles to smoothly inject the special liquid sclerosant solution into smaller surface veins. In general, it feels just like a small mosquito bite so you don’t need to worry too much about any pain or discomfort.
There are many solutions used, but at Doctor Vein we use a special sclerosant that is manufactured either in Germany or the United Kingdom, depending on the patient profile. These solutions irritate the inner lining of the vein wall, hardening the abnormal vein as the body gradually absorbs it.

Is Direct Vision Sclerotherapy effective?
Treatment of spider and smaller green veins using sclerotherapy is the most effective. Even after the first few weeks after treatment, you will notice substantial changes in the appearance of varicose and spider veins. The final results will be visible in 3 to 6 months post treatment.
What happens to the “targeted” vein?
Once we inject the sclerosant solution into a vein, it redirects the blood flow through the nearest blood vessels, allowing the targeted vein to collapse and heal with time.
Possible side effects
These are lumps felt in areas where the varicose veins were. They are often tender to touch but slowly decrease in size on their own or when removed with a needle.
