Sclerotherapy is a highly effective treatment for veins that have become enlarged, uncomfortable or unsightly. It involves injections into unwanted veins with sclerosants (medical solutions) that cause the veins to collapse and dry up resulting in complete closure of the veins. This treatment can be used to treat both varicose veins and spider veins. The circulation will improve because new networks of veins will develop to bypass the diseased ones. The result of the treatment will last many years. Varicose Veins is a medical disease which is not cured by Sclerotherapy or by surgery. New varicose veins may develop as one gets older and so it is necessary to return for regular follow ups. Your doctor will be able to tell you how often you need to return for these follow ups.
Sclerotherapy is highly successful and quite painless. Anyone with a varicose vein problem should seek treatment as early as possible to avoid surgery.
FACIAL CAPILLARIES can be treated easily and successfully with the Hyfrecater. The procedure is quick and quite painless. For those with a very low pain threshold loacal anaesthetic cream applied 30 minutes before the procedure will take the sting out of it.
Medicare will cover part of the cost of Varicose Veins and Facial veins treatment. Almost all the Private Health Funds will cover the cost of the compression stockings.
