Leg Vein Treatment

Thread veins can be both unsightly and uncomfortable. These small dilated blood vessels are extremely common but can socially embarrassing and restrictive with clothing choices. 

At St Michael's Clinic we treat thread veins on the legs with 
microsclerotherapy, intense pulsed light or laser. A combination of these may be used to achieve the optimum result.

Sclerotherapy is a safe and well established treatment for thread veins on the legs. Although there are a number of alternative treatments, it remains the most reliably successful of them all.

​A solution is injected with a very tiny needle, very superficially into the veins, causing the lining of the vein to swell and become sticky. 
Compression hosiery (stocking) is then applied to close the veins. Over a period of time the vein will heal closed and fade away. Wearing the compression hosiery is an essential part of the treatment process. We use Sigvaris stockings as we believe they are the best in both appearance and function.
