Spider veins and varicose veins are unsightly and can be a concern for many people who have them. At Dr Nyla’s clinic in Cheshire, spider veins and varicose veins can be easily and effectively removed with Sclerotherapy treatment.
Sclerotherapy is a proven medical treatment and has been used since the 1930’s to treat painful varicose veins and unsightly spider veins. A solution made up of salt is injected directly into the vein, causing the lining of the blood vessel to swell and stick together, clotting the blood. Eventually the vessel turns into a scar and fades away.
The treatment is entirely safe, and you can resume your normal activities the same day. The procedure only takes 20 mins, and results may be seen within weeks but may take a number of months.
A very fine needle is used to inject the solution into the varicose and spider vein. Generally the larger the veins are then you may experience cramp or numbness for a few minutes. The Sclerotherapy procedure lasts around 20 minutes depending upon the size of the area needing treatment.
Results may be seen within weeks but may take a number of months.
Anyone considering Sclerotherapy has to have a consultation first before any treatment is allowed.
Generally Sclerotherapy is not available to those who are:

The benefit of having Sclerotherapy is that you can carry on with your day to day activates. Walking is therefore encouraged and it's safe to drive home after the treatment.
