Microsclerotherapy is a safe and long established treatment for thread veins in the legs.
About 50% of people will develop these at some point in their lives. Most often this is due to genetics, or to jobs that involve standing for long periods of time. They are unlikely to cause any symptoms or medical problems, but they can make people feel self-conscious and limit clothing choices.
Microsclerotherapy involves the injection of a non-toxic irritant solution directly into the problem veins. This causes the vein walls to stick together and prevents blood passing through. Over a period of weeks the blood vessel is gradually reabsorbed by the body and either reduces or disappears entirely.
