Sclerotherapy

At Shakespeare Medical Centre we offer a treatment called Sclerotherapy which reduces the appearence of those unwanted Varicose Veins, known as spider veins, which are commonly seen on the legs and face. Spider veins may also be associated with aching in the legs particularly after standing for prolonged periods.

The treatment performed by Dr Goldston, requires the technique of instilling an irritant solution into the vein using a very small needle. The solution destroys the lining of the abnormal vessel and causes the walls of the vessel to stick together so that eventually the spider vein is replaced with almost imperceptible scar tissue. Each area may need several treatments (2 to 3 on average) and the veins will take up to six months to fade.

For an accurate diagnosis and advice, you will require and inital medical consultation with Doctor which is rebateable with Medicare.
