Thread veins which are visible to legs can happen at any stage of our lives. They can be hereditary, stem from hormones or even pregnancy. Micro-sclerotherapy is a technique used to inject the affected veins with a substance called ‘Sclerosant’, which causes the vein walls to swell. If the veins are small enough, the swelling will destroy the veins several weeks after treatment, making them mush less noticeable.
It is important to note that you may need several sessions to reduce the appearance of thread veins, usually four to six weeks apart. You can typically expect to see a 75% improvement on the visibility of the veins.
Varicose veins feed blood into the thread veins, which would mean that thread veins would reappear. If the main cause of the problem isn’t treated, you can expect that Micro-Sclerotheraphy will be unsuccessful.
