Varicose veins and Spider vein injections
Varicose Veins can be treated by the injection of aethoxyscleol fluid directly into the veins. The aethoxysklerol acts as a glue to bind the veins together, essentially stopping the vein from working. The procedure will prevent oedema, ulceration, pain and fatigue in the affected leg. The treatment is basically painless with a very small needle being used.
There is no down time for this procedure. You are encouraged to return to normal activities an hour after your treatment.
You will not be able to fly for 4 weeks after your treatment.
Medical compression stockings are to be worn for 4 weeks after your treatment. These are a class 2 30mmHg graduated compression.
Staining and small lumps are normal after injections. These will resolve with time. Resolution of staining and lumps varies for each patient.
Our injections are bulk billed to Medicare of DVA. You will have to purchase the medical compression stockings. The stockings vary from $100 — $170 per pair.
We recommend continuing to wear medical compression stockings after your have had any venous treatments performed.
