Do you suffer from spider veins?

Spider veins are web-like networks of blood vessels that appear on the legs and feet due to dilated capillaries. This condition is usually harmless, but it can sometimes cause pain, such as burning after standing for long periods. If you suffer from spider veins, sclerotherapy might be right for you!


What is sclerotherapy? How does it work?

Sclerotherapy is a simple procedure, in which a visible vein is injected with a medication called polidocanol, which causes the vein to close off. Once the target vein has closed, the blood reroutes to healthier veins.

When will I start seeing results? How long will the results last?

You will see results immediately after the procedure, but for the veins to completely fade away may require a few weeks. The results last a lifetime, but it is possible to develop other spider veins in the future, which can then be treated.

Transilluminated powered phlebectomy

Transilluminated Powered Phlebectomy (TIPP) is similar to ambulatory phlebectomy but slightly more invasive. It is performed on an outpatient basis in an operating room under light anesthesia. After making two small incisions near the varicose vein, the surgeon inserts a tumescent canula illuminator (TCI) that contains a fiber optic light that makes the veins easily visible. Fluid containing a local anesthetic is infused under the skin, loosening the vein from the surrounding tissue. A vein remover instrument is guided to the vein, which is suctioned into the instrument where it is cut into small pieces and removed.

Thanks to a large amount of local anesthetic used, patients usually awake without any pain and can return home in about an hour. They can return to their normal activities immediately and work within a few days. Strenuous activity should be limited for up to two weeks. As with any surgery, there are some potential complications including a risk of infection and hyperpigmentation (skin discoloration).
