At Lioness Medical, we effectively treat facial vessels with Intense Pulse Light (IPL) or laser with minimal downtime or risk in just a few quick, easy treatments. For thread veins to the legs or body we can effectively treat with Sclerotherapy.
How are thread veins treated?
Thread veins are treated with Sclerotherapy by the injection of an irritant solution directly within the thread vein or vessel.
How many treatments are necessary?
The number of treatments necessary depends upon the number of thread veins you have. It can also be dependant upon your bodies reaction to the agent, but for most people two to four treatments on the effected area is ample.
How long does each treatment take?
We reserve one hour of treatment time for this injectable therapy however the injections themselves just take a few seconds.
What does treatment feel like?
Injections are with a very fine needle, however some people report a mild stinging sensation which generally passes in a few seconds. Your nurse will make your treatment as comfortable as possible by applying cool swabs and arnica gel to the area.
