What is Microsclerotherapy?
Microsclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat thread veins (also known as “spider veins”) on the legs. It is one of the most effective treatments available for the removal of thread veins.
What does a Microsclerotherapy treatment involve?
A very fine needle is used to inject a sclerosing agent directly into the thread vein. The sclerosing agent flows through the vein and stimulates the walls of the vein to swell up. The swelling prevents any blood from passing through the vessel and this causes the vein to shrivel up and disappear. Generally patients will require two to three sessions for thread veins to be completely eradicated.
The course covers all elements of identifying and treating thread veins with microsclerotherapy including:
– Anatomy and physiology of veins
– Vessel classification
– Sclerosing agents
– Patient examination and suitability for treatment
– Consultation and expected results
– Injection technique/practical
– Post treatment management
The training day itself starts with a theory session in the morning, Upon completion of the theory session, our Educator will demonstrate a Microsclerotherapy treatment on a model. The afternoon sessions gives each delegate the opportunity to carry out a Microsclerotherapy treatment on a model and also to observe their fellow delegates treating models. They are closely guided and supervised by our Educator during the practical portion of the day.
