Microsclerotherapy is a safe and well-established treatment for thread veins on the legs, which are frequently associated with symptoms of aching, burning, itching, throbbing and cramps. These veins are abnormally dilated blood vessels lying very close to the surface of the skin. Unfortunately, they are usually genetic, but certain lifestyle habits can make them worse. Standing for long periods, exposure to extreme heat such as sun beds, saunas, hot baths and showers, and high impact exercise are just a few examples. Although there are a number of alternative treatments, Microsclerotherapy still remains the most reliably successful of them all.


  • Safe and effective treatment for leg veins
  • Virtually no downtime
  • Show off your legs with confidence
  • Reduces unsightly thread veins

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know

A solution is injected very superficially into the veins using a very fine needle, causing the lining of the vein to swell and become sticky. Compression is then applied to close the veins. Over a period of time, the vein will heal closed and fade away.

It is a fairly pain-free procedure and you can resume normal activities immediately.

Compression stockings are worn for up to 2 weeks to help close the vein. When the stockings are removed, the treated area will look bruised and the veins may look worse before they look better. There is a 70-80% success rate, with the veins fading gradually over a 6 month period.

Most patients experience no complications; however, some minor side-effects have been reported. The two most common side-effects are brown staining or red bruising. Some people may initially experience restlessness in their legs, especially at night. This is due to the swelling in the vein walls and is normal. A full medical assessment will be carried out at initial consultation to determine your suitability for treatment.

The results achieved after one treatment vary from one patient to another. Following your initial consultation, we will be able to let you know the number of sessions required for you. You should budget for up to 3 treatments, 6 weeks apart and you can expect an improvement in appearance of 70-80%.

I have had sclerotherapy. Painless procedure that has given amazing results. So pleased I have had it done. Staff are great and Marzieh is brilliant!


Very pleased with my treatments! Have been three times now and will keep coming! Highly recommended


I have been going to HSC for 5 years for a variety of skin concerns. Marzieh and Daryl are brilliant at their jobs and, as someone who has been to Harley Street cosmetic clinics and paid much higher prices – without such good results – I can honestly and wholeheartedly recommend HSC. I have never written a review before but HSC is such a wonderful haven of tranquility and the treatments have worked wonderfully for me.
