Sclerotherapy in Dubai

Sclerotherapy is a treatment for varicose and spider veins. Varicose and spider veins are typical vascular issues affecting mostly women.

Varicose veins are swollen and twisted veins that most commonly present in the legs but can also develop in other areas of the body. They are often dark purple or blue in colour. Spider veins are small, red veins that can form on the legs and face, particularly near mucosal membranes. They are named because their resemblance to a spider web.

What causes Spider/Varicose Veins?

Varicose and spider veins are caused by a variety of causes, including inheritance, prolonged standing or sitting, and obesity. Sclerotherapy is an excellent treatment for spider veins and smaller varicose veins. This treatment is not recommended during pregnancy or on veins that can be utilised for heart bypass surgery unless they are severely damaged.

Benefits of Sclerotherapy

Spider and varicose veins frequently attract unwelcome attention and can be painful. If this issue is affecting your confidence or stopping you from going about your daily activities or wearing your preferred attire, get medical attention:

  • Enhance the appearance of your legs. To obtain a smoother look, remove any bulging or blue veins.
  • Because the treatment is minimally invasive, there will be little to no downtime following your quick session.
  • This treatment also eliminates any pain or discomfort linked with varicose or spider veins.
  • Permanent removal/treatment of the vein can be accomplished over time (this will be confirmed by your doctor during the appointment).
  • A quick and painless recovery is expected from this procedure
  • Following treatment, only minor followup is necessary.

What happens during the Procedure of Sclerotherapy?

  • Preparation: Typically, no extra preparation is necessary. Certain drugs or chemicals that may interfere with blood coagulation may be suggested to be avoided.
  • Positioning: You will be asked to lie down on an examination table, and the region where the injections will be delivered will be cleaned.
  • Injection of Sclerosing Substance: A sterile chemical solution called sclerosing solution is injected directly into the afflicted veins using a very small needle. The solution irritates the blood vessel lining, causing them to collapse and cling together.
  • Multiple Injection Point: Multiple injections may be required during a single session, depending on the number and size of veins being treated. The operation usually takes between 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Monitoring & Compression: Our doctor will advise you to put the Medical compression Stocking to the treated region after the procedure. This prevents blood from re-entering the treated veins and encourages vein collapse.

Results of Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy causes the treated veins to fade and become less noticeable over time. The sclerosing solution irritates the blood vessel lining, causing it to collapse and cling together. This procedure redirects blood flow to healthier veins, resulting in improved circulation. The collapsing veins are ultimately absorbed by the body and disappear. The effects are not instantaneous, and it may take many weeks to months for the full extent of the effects to become evident. Multiple sclerotherapy treatments may be required to attain the desired result. Individual outcomes may vary, but the process is typically efficient in decreasing the appearance of varicose and spider veins. Follow-up sessions are critical for tracking progress and evaluating whether more treatments are required.
