VEINWAVE & SCLEROTHERAPY
Target spider and varicose veins.Book your consultation
Unsightly varicose and spider veins can leave you feeling unconfident when it comes to summer and beachwear. At Apsaras, we provide two advanced treatments to treat these concerns. We will talk through which treatment or combination of treatments is right for you during your free consultation.
This advanced treatment can be used on any part of the body including the face and legs. We are one of a small number of clinics offering Veinwave in the Midlands.
As a complete solution for treating leg spider or thread veins and facial red veins – Veinwave uses a high-frequency current and can also effectively treat rosacea. Veins don’t reappear after treatment making Veinwave treatment a long-term solution.
Veinwave uses a process known as thermo-coagulation. An ultra-fine insulated needle heats blood vessels through high-frequency microwaves. This creates a thermal lesion which heats and seals the vein without affecting surrounding tissue.
Sclerotherapy effectively targets varicose and spider veins through the injection of sclerosant solution via an ultra-fine needle directly into the blood vessel.
With no downtime or surgery, this advanced treatment is well established and renowned for long-lasting results.
The sclerosant solution injected into the blood vessels causes the lining to swell and stick together. Over the following weeks, veins will fade and disappear. Some may need several treatment sessions.
We treat varicose veins first as thread or spider veins connected to them may disappear over a few weeks without treatment. Treatment sessions are spaced accordingly to keep the treatment needed to a minimum.
We believe that taking time before deciding whether Veinwave and / or sclerotherapy is the right treatment for you is the most important part of your journey with us. Your free 30-minute consultation will include a comprehensive assessment and give you the opportunity to ask questions and find out more in a relaxed setting.
Veinwave and sclerotherapy treatments are tailored to your unique needs (as are all of our treatments). We’ll explain all of the options during your free consultation and will recommend the best course of treatment for you.
Yes – Veinwave can effectively treat rosacea (long-term redness across the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin) and facial thread veins. It can also be used to target blood spots (also known as purpura).
This depends on the veins being treated – we’ll advise in full during your free consultation.
There’s no downtime with either treatment. Some clients experience mild redness and bruising where injections have been made.
Sclerotherapy does carry a risk of permanent skin staining – although most staining is temporary.
Both Veinwave and sclerotherapy are pain free. Needles used are extremely fine and most clients can only feel a mild tingling or pin-prick sensation.
