Microsclerotherapy – treatment for leg veins

Leg veins are a frequent condition which will prevent many women from wearing shorts, skirts or summer dresses

Leg veins are a problem for many women.

The good news is that these unsightly veins can be removed. Dr. Simona uses a process called microsclerotherapy, which is a minimally invasive method  to remove unwanted leg veins. With microsclerotherapy you improve your leg appearance. Therefore no more red and purple veins on your legs.

The procedure uses a sclerosing solution which will be injected with a very fine needle into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel which will swell and stick together. As a result, it will gradually disappear.

This treatment can be used on veins on the legs, ankles and anywhere on the body beneath the heart.
