Treatments are very effective. The foam ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy ensures a generous coverage and closure of most varicose veins. As it’s often used with Endovenous Laser Ablations and Phlebectomies, the success rate is remarkably high.

We are happy to let you know this is a walk-in, walk-out procedure. Therefore, right after the treatment, we will apply some protective stockings and you can instantly walk.

Within the first 24h, you might experience some heaviness, but it will settle over the next few days. Most patients can go straight back to work or any other daily activity. We recommend avoiding strenuous exercises for the first two weeks after treatment.

In general, one treatment per leg should be enough. A session takes 30 to 45 minutes. In very rare cases, a second treatment might be needed for significant varicose veins that go deep under the skin.

We use a local anaesthetic that blocks any sensations and eliminates pain. Some people could experience pinpoint cramping or a slight burning when the doctor injects the solution. Apart from this, ultrasound guided Sclerotherapy is not painful at all.

Possible side effects

It could happen straight after the procedure and even mild aching the same night. Still, most patients don’t take any medication. If it bothers them, a Paracetamol or Nurofen is all that’s needed.

This often happens a week after treatment, due to blood trapped 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.
This usually occurs within the first few days after treatment. It could last for 3 weeks after but slowly fades on its own. No treatment is required.
This is a result of dead blood in the vein coming to the surface of the skin. It looks like a brownish patch, located where the vein used to be. It fades with time and does not persist past 12 months. Removal of trapped blood reduces it, but cannot prevent it.
