Brighter, clearer skin texture and free from unsightly spider vessels.
How Does The Treatment Work?
The fibrovein acts to cause slight irritation to the inner lining of the vessels injected, this irritation causes the walls to become sticky and when compression is applied the vessel walls stick together and collapse.
Once all the vessels collapsed, the body can no longer use them and absorbs them back into the system. As this absorption is a natural process it can take a number of months before the vessels fully disappear.
What Results Should I Expect?
As a result of this treatment you’ll have brighter, clearer texture and will be free from unsightly spider vessels. The results happen after a number of treatments
Does The Treatment Hurt?
Usually only the very tip of the needle is inserted into the skin, whilst this can be experienced as a tiny scratch, it should not be more painful than plucking hair.
Immediately after the treatment the vessels can look more inflamed and angry, this is to be expected and is part of the process. This can take up to 24 hours following treatment to subside. The area can also feel slightly itchy after the treatment, but again this will subside within 24 hours.
Medication to be avoided before hand would be anything which thins the blood such as; aspirin, non-sterodial anti-inflammatories (ibuprofen), Warfarin, Clopidogrel. This would have to be discussed beforehand with the Doctor/Nurse as the need for medication may outweigh the need to withhold medication and have sclerotherapy.
As with any injectable treatment there can be a small risk of bruising, bleeding and a very small risk of infection. In very rare cases small areas of persistent bruising known as haemosiderin deposits can occur.
During your Consultation you will be measured for graduated compression stockings and these must be worn continuously for 72 hours following treatment. Graduated compression stockings are an important part of the healing process and are essential for optimum success of the treatment.
