Sclerotherapy – what is it.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure that enables the practitioner to close varicose veins. It consists of injecting a special fluid into the vein, closing the blood vessels and excluding them from the bloodstream. It is a minimally invasive method compared to surgical interventions of varicose veins treatment. At the Eskulap Clinic in London, we have specialized ultrasound machines, thanks to which sclerotherapy and doppler treatment can be performed under the supervision of a specialist radiologist, which additionally increases the safety and therapeutic effectiveness of sclerotherapy method. We are one of the few clinics in the UK that use ultrasound before each aesthetic medicine treatment to plan and accurately assess the effects.
