Varicose Veins Treatment
Also Suitable for Thread Veins & Blue Leg Veins
Dr Ross Perry, GP and founder of The London Vein Centre, has created a short new video to introduce foam sclerotherapy.
This is a less well known treatment for varicose veins yet it offers enormous advantages for patients who have smaller varicose veins or blue thread veins on the legs.
Many assume that surgery is the only solution. If they are aware of alternatives, then they primarily tend to think of the more expensive laser options.
Yet foam sclerotherapy has the potential to banish unsightly leg veins in under half an hour.
Dr Ross Perry explains more in our new video.
Quick Injection Treatment for Varicose Veins
Foam Sclerotherapy Demonstration
Dr Ross Perry explains:
“Here we are showing our vascular surgeon doing a foam injection for varicose veins.
“This is a very short quick treatment that only takes about 20 minutes for smaller varicose veins and blue veins on the legs
“If you suffer with such things then please contact Cosmedics and we’ll be more than happy to help.”
This procedure is carried out using an ultrasound scan in order to guide the injection. This ensures that our Vascular Surgeon can deliver it precisely and accurately exactly where it is needed.
We use a special sclerosant foam which is injected into the affected veins. The foam causes an inflammatory reaction in the vein wall, which ultimately blocks the vein. This procedure is quite safe, as blood circulation is diverted through other, healthier veins. The aim is to stop the appearance of unsightly blue veins.
Compression bandages are applied after the procedure and are typically worn for between a week and a month.
