Patients often experience some redness afterwards from a few days to 1-2 weeks according to how many veins are needed to be treated and those with fairer skin types typically take a bit longer to recover. Lots of moisturising is advised afterwards and application of sunblock.
No it is classed as a cosmetic treatment and therefore not covered on the NHS.
Occasionally you get some bruising and redness which settles in a week or so. Rarely some light brown marks can be left where the vein once was, but this normally settles.
To ensure long-lasting results it is important to note that clients who have leg sclerotherapy treatment should wear compression class 2 stockings for a minimum of 48-hour post-treatment but can be worn for up to 1-month post-treatment. These are soon to be available to purchase at our Putney clinic or online but can also be purchased at chemists.
In most cases ‘yes’.
The thread veins would be removed and blemish-free skin revealed, giving you the confidence to wear what you want.
Occasionally a few treatment sessions are required to get optimal results normally about a month apart.
The results can last for up to a few years before the natural skin effects mean that sometimes they recur or new veins appear due to the skins natural tendency to form these veins.
No. Only, a mild scratch-like discomfort that is over in seconds (sclerotherapy) or a quick sting (laser).
Laser is used mainly for thin, small lines on the face and occasionally on the legs. Sclerotherapy is better for larger bluey-red-purple thread veins on the legs.
Treatment prices start at £300, but this would be confirmed at your consultation with the doctor. It is important to note that sometimes more than one session is required to get long-lasting results and sometimes a maintenance session is required.
