Vein Practice


The Sclerotherapy method entails injecting an agent into the vein that causes the vein to become ‘sticky’. The varicose vein shrinks, and is slowly eaten up by your body.

The benefits of Sclerotherapy:

• As a result of technological advancement, sclerotherapy is acknowledged as a leading varicose veins treatment.

• Sclerotherapy is an extremely versatile treatment and has the capacity to treat from the smallest spider veins to the largest truncal varicose veins.

• The success of sclerotherapy is enhanced when combined with ultrasound treatment

The downfall of Sclerotherapy:

• Unfortunately, certain medical aids in South Africa have incorrectly identity Sclerotherapy as an exclusive treatment of cosmetic veins, and, as a result, do not cover treatment of proper varicose veins.
