The
PROCEDURE

Starting with a full consultation, we discuss your medical history and perform a thorough examination. It’s essential to pinpoint any underlying conditions such as varicose veins, skin changes, or swelling, which may influence the outcome of the treatment.

During the procedure, a specialised solution is delicately introduced into the targeted vein. This gentle process encourages the vein to naturally fade away over time. As the body responds to the treatment, the appearance of the vein on the skin’s surface gradually diminishes, leading to clearer skin.

SPIDER VEINS

Spider veins on the legs, often referred to as telangiectasias, are small, unsightly veins that are visible just beneath the skin’s surface. They can result from various factors, including genetics, prolonged standing, trauma, or hormonal influences. While they might be cosmetic for many, they can sometimes cause discomfort. Spider vein removal is especially effective for these leg veins. Post-treatment, wearing medical-grade compression stockings is crucial for up to 6 weeks to aid the healing process. Over time, some veins may reappear, warranting occasional treatment sessions for optimal maintenance.

Spider veins can be attributed to numerous factors, such as age, genetics, gender, pregnancy, occupation, and more. For instance, prolonged standing, medications, trauma, underlying varicose veins, or hormonal contraceptives can all play a part. If underlying varicose veins are detected, you may need to consult a vascular surgeon before undergoing spider vein treatments for the best results.

You receive a thorough medical consultation, encompassing an evaluation of your medical history, current medications, and a physical examination. We especially look for signs of varicose veins, skin changes, or swelling. We also discuss potential contraindications, such as previous vascular issues, allergies, or specific medications.

Spider vein removal is completely effective for the correct patient; that's why a thorough medical consultation is essential. If the treatment isn't suitable for you, you are referred to an appropriate medical specialist or vascular surgeon. If you are a suitable candidate for the treatment depending upon the severity of the area to be treated, you can expect to see a 60-80% resolution of the veins in the first session allowing 6-8 weeks post treatment with full compliance of compression stockings to be worn every day. Greater results are achieved with a second session; however, if compliance is not met, minimal results are achieved from injections alone. The severity of the area to be treated is discussed in consultation and the amount of improvement that can be achieved. Full kidney function is required for this treatment. Over time, some thread veins may re-emerge, making regular treatment sessions beneficial. The interval between the appearance of new veins can vary, ranging from 1-10 years, but the treatment remains effective for these subsequent sessions.

After the procedure, if your spider veins were treated on your legs, it's essential to wear medical-grade compression stockings. These stockings should be worn for up to 6 weeks. After the procedure, if your spider veins were treated on your legs, it's essential to wear medical-grade compression stockings. These stockings should be worn for up to 6 weeks. The treated areas may initially appear worse before showing improvement, and it's typically suggested to wait 8-12 weeks between treatments. For the best results in recovery, your aftercare should include taking brisk walks, avoiding extreme temperatures, and refraining from flying for 4 weeks. High-impact exercises should be avoided for 2 weeks post-treatment; however, it's important to remain mobile and active during this time.

After undergoing spider vein removal, some patients experience side effects including bruising, swelling, tenderness, and itching. In some cases, there might be no apparent treatment effect. Another possible side effect is hemosiderin, which can cause a yellow, brown, or black stain on your leg, resembling a bruise. Hyperpigmentation or discolouration of the treated area is also a potential outcome. It's important to note that this list isn't exhaustive, and other side effects that may arise are thoroughly discussed during your consultation to ensure you are fully informed.

Spider vein removal, while effective, is not an instantaneous solution. Following treatment, patients might initially notice the treated areas appearing more pronounced or even slightly aggravated. This is a typical response as the body begins the healing process and starts to reabsorb the treated veins. The visible results can vary from one individual to another, depending largely on the size and severity of the treated veins, as well as the individual's healing response. Over time, the treated veins fade, with most patients observing a significant reduction or complete disappearance over the span of 8-12 weeks. However, it's important to remember that the timeline can vary based on individual factors, and multiple sessions might be necessary to achieve optimal results. Moreover, as with many cosmetic procedures, patience and adhering to aftercare guidelines ensure the best possible outcome.
