In this page, we will outline all the key details about sclerotherapy in London, answer the common queries and explain why Doctor Nyla’s MediSpa Clinic stands apart.
Whilst not typically a medical concern, varicose veins can be unsightly and often a visible sign of ageing.
They can therefore impact confidence and self esteem and, as with other signs of ageing and imperfections, have a noticeable impact on relationships and even our confidence at work.
Treatments in the form of sclerotherapy have been available since the 1930s and the fundamentals of this treatment have not changed, even if the nature of clinics and level of patient care have.
To treat the veins, a salt dissolution is created and this injected with skill and precision directly into the veins, this then causes the vessel to swell up and stick together. The blood will clot and the vessel will become a scar before then fading away.
Typically, it takes just 20 to 30 minutes for this procedure and it is one that skilled practitioners can carry out extremely safely. However, as it involves injection into veins it is of course important to ensure that any clinic you entrust has the highest of standards of patient care and is doctor led.
In general terms, those who have varicose veins and are concerned about their appearance, will be suitable for treatment.
Doctor Nyla would always hold an initial consultation and talk you through the process, as well as ensuring the veins are indeed suitable for this treatment.
There are some who would not be able to have varicose vein treatment, this including pregnant women, those taking birth control and also anyone with a history of blood clots.
Suitability also depends on how much the appearance of the veins concerns the individuals – clearly there is no real need for treatment if you have varicose veins but are wholly unconcerned by this. Equally, such a person would be unlikely to have googled a term such as sclerotherapy treatment.
For those who have varicose veins, would rather they didn’t have this visible blemish and desire a quick and simple treatment, then sclerotherapy is likely to be a superb option.
Sclerotherapy is a wonderful treatment that does the job it sets out to do perfectly – it removes the varicose veins.
The main benefit is perhaps to appearance, over time the veins will scar and then fade from view – but there can also be benefits to mental health, confidence and self esteem.
We all like to look at our best, and this extends to wishing signs of ageing were perhaps a little less visible. A small treatment can do so much to boost confidence and enable us to portray the very best version of ourselves.
The results of sclerotherapy are easily assessed – the varicose vein is removed.
It typically takes a couple of months for final results to be visible, but these results are permanent in that the vein, once treated, is gone.
New varicose veins can appear over time, but these can then be treated via the same means.
