Sclerotherapy treatment in Reading | Hilton Skin Clinics



Specifically used to treat thread veins on the legs, Sclerotherapy is a safe, effective and virtually painless treatment for thread veins.

Whilst thread veins aren’t dangerous, they can cause distress and embarrassment especially if they appear on an area of the legs that’s regularly exposed. A number of factors can contribute to the occurrence of thread veins, including obesity, standing for long periods of time and hormonal changes.

They tend to arise just under the skin’s surface and can be red, blue or purple in colour. Whilst they’re not considered a serious medical issue, they can cause various aches and pains.



Here at Hilton Skin Clinics, we only use Sclerotherapy to treat thread veins on the legs, even though they can sometimes occur on the face too. We do this due to the minimal risk of scarring as a result of this treatment.

A chemical solution is directly injected into the veins at various points. This solution irritates the lining of the veins and, along with compression, the veins will eventually collapse.

Over time, your body will naturally absorb the veins, resulting in smoother legs free of unsightly thread veins.

Sclerotherapy is painless, so no anaesthetic will be required. Downtime is minimal once treatment is over, but it’s recommended to wear compression stockings following the procedure to promote healing. Your practitioner will advise wearing them day and night for the first 3 days, then just during the day for the next 3.

Typically, results are seen within a few weeks of the first treatment. Although veins will begin to fade after just one session, you’ll likely need a course of 2-4 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart to achieve maximum results.
