Tumescent Foam Sclerotherapy is a procedure which was developed by Vascular Surgeon Mr Parameswaran Sridhar.

This is a brand new ‘all in one’ treatment protocol which was designed to tackle not only the most obvious varicose veins, but also those smaller ones too plus larger thread veins.

Previously this thoroughness of treatment would require two treatment sessions rather than one and the use of a couple of different techniques. In one single treatment, Tumescent Foam Sclerotherapy carries out both:

Tumescent Foam Sclerotherapy is exclusively available at Cosmedics’ London Vein Centre.

Tumescent Foam Sclerotherapy Advantages

Advantages of this approach are numerous:

  • One single treatment session is more convenient
  • Treatment is faster when combined – takes around an hour per leg
  • Tumescent Foam Sclerotherapy provides a more thorough result than either of the procedures alone
  • Less painful, as only one incision required and a smaller amount of foam solution is used
  • Targeted and accurate treatment
  • Less inflammation and discomfort
  • Quicker healing
  • Day case procedure

Tumescent Foam Sclerotherapy FAQs

Where can I get this treatment?

This treatment protocol is exclusive to our Vascular Surgeon, Mr Parameswaran. It is available for private clients at our Putney Vein Treatment Centre.

Will it Hurt?

The entire procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic so while you may feel an odd sensation, you won’t feel any pain during the procedure.

There may be some discomfort when the anaesthetic wears off, but this is manageable with ordinary painkillers (e.g. paracetamol).

Do I have to wear special stockings?

Yes, we will provide dressings/stockings and advise how long they need to be worn for. Normally bandages are worn for a couple of days, then surgical support/compression stockings for a week after that. These are easily hidden with clothing (i.e. wear trousers).

Do I take time off work?

This is carried out as a day case procedure and there is no need for an overnight stay.  You can return straight home to put your feet up.  Most of our patients do return straight to normal activities the next day, but others may prefer an extra day or so to recover just in case.  This is a personal choice.

How Soon Will I See the Results?

You will see straightaway that the blue and lumpy veins have been removed. It will take a while for bruising to clear and we suggest the full results are to be expected after 4-6 weeks.




Before & After

"I don't think I realised quite how ugly my leg looked beforehand, but I'm really pleased with the fact that it's been treated and it now just looks perfectly normal."

Lydia is absolutely superb in giving a caci treatment. My very first treatment was with her a a one-off and due to the excellent result I booked a series of caci treatments in Southampton where I live. I’ve also had treatments in Scotland whilst on holiday there and I am very impressed by Lydia’s treatments. She is also very animated and friend,y without being intrusive when I feel like being quiet. I would thoroughly recommend her caci treatment.

I had a growth removed near my nose via shave excision by Dr Rhys James in the Bristol clinic. He was very calm and friendly and really put me at ease, the procedure didn't hurt at all. I had the growth sent for a histology and got the results back within two weeks and am healing well. Highly recommend!
