Sclerotherapy is one of the most effective treatments for unsightly capillary veins in the legs. The method of application is simple: a sclerosing substance is injected into the blood vessels, causing an inflammatory reaction on the capillary wall, which in turn gradually causes it to close. Several sessions are necessary to improve the overall appearance of the area. It is very important to carefully examine the vascular structure of the treated limb, using a colour Doppler test.
The improvement in the appearance of the capillaries takes a few weeks. During the post-treatment period, it is very important to wear gradual compression stockings and follow the lifestyle advice provided by the doctor. ND-YAG laser sessions are often used to treat thinner, lighter capillary veins.
