At EK Clinic® we use Sclerotherapy for effective treatment of spider veins on the legs. Spider veins are those small thread veins, they can be blue, purple, or red. It’s like they just appear. They are veins that have been put under pressure and are permanently dilated. Although they aren’t typically painful many of us wish to remove them. They are often hereditary, but they can also be caused by hormonal changes, obesity, ageing and standing for long periods of time. 

Sclerotherapy uses Fibrovein, which is FDA approved for the treatment of small spider leg veins. We inject this directly into the veins resulting in the vein collapsing which forces the blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is then reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades. 

Treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks. But in some cases it can take a month or so to see the full results and subsequent treatments may be required. 

Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical technique that is performed quickly. After Sclerotherapy treatment spider veins are reabsorbed by the body and disappear. If you have spider veins that you’d like to banish please come and discuss with us.

Whatever your concerns, our Aesthetic Medical Team will be able to give you advice on all things skin related especially ageing positively.


What are spider veins and how do they appear?

The technical term for spider or thread veins is telangiectasia. These veins appear when the capillaries, are put under a lot of pressure and become permanently dilated. This means they can be seen through the skin so we see red, purple or blue lines.

Varicose and thread veins are often hereditary, but they can also be caused by obesity, ageing, standing for long periods of time and leg injuries to the skin. The can also be caused by hormonal changes including puberty, pregnancy, menopause and even the contraceptive pill and HRT. So of course, women are more likely to develop these spider veins. Unfortunately, this is not a solution for varicose veins. 

How does Sclerotherapy work?

The solution we inject at EK Clinic® works to irritate the lining of the problem vein, which causes it to swell and shut, blocking the flow of blood. The blood then flows through other healthy veins and eventually the problem vein we have treated disappears.

What happens in the treatment appointment?

We’ll get you to lie down on your back with your legs slightly elevated. We’ll cleanse the area to be treated and then use a fine needle to slowly insert a solution into the appropriate vein. 

There is a small amount of local anaesthetic (lidocaine) in the liquid we inject. So you shouldn’t feel any pain. 

How many treatments are required?

We find most of the veins we treat respond well. Those that respond to treatment generally don't come back, but new veins may appear. In some instances, multiple sclerotherapy treatments may be needed. Generally, you need to wait about six weeks before undergoing another sclerotherapy session. We can discuss all possible outcomes at your consultation.

What are the results?

After Sclerotherapy, treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take a month or more to see the full results.
