Microsclerotherapy - Introductory
Spider veins and thread veins are terms used by the public for small, unsightly, superficial veins usually found in clusters on the legs. The prevalence of thread veins and spider veins among adults is over 50%. Telangiectasia is the medical term for small red veins which are commonly referred to as red veins, dilated capillaries or broken veins.
Most women are concerned with the cosmetic appearance of their thread veins but they are frequently associated with symptoms of aching, burning, itching, throbbing and cramps. These symptoms are often worse at certain times of the menstrual cycle. In addition, the presence of thread veins may indicate an abnormality of the venous system which may require further investigation.
Microsclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for thread veins and spider veins which has been practiced in Europe for many years. With appropriate training, it can be practised by doctors and nurses from a wide range of specialities and backgrounds.
This course will enable you to identify veins suitable for Microsclerotherapy; assess patients suitable for Microsclerotherapy; recognise contraindications to patients; gain informed consent; begin your practice with a sound technique.
