What is micro-sclerotherapy and how does it work?
Frequently Asked Questions
Is it painful?
The micro-needles are incredibly tiny and very well tolerated by most people. You may feel a slight sting when first injected, however the liquid sclerosant we use also works as an anaesthetic that reduces any pain.
What’s the recovery time?
There is no recovery time for this treatment, you can go straight back to work or continue your daily routine.
How many treatments will I need?
This depends on the area/s you would like treated. Normally 1-2 treatments will be sufficient for veins on the face, however our doctor will assess your face and advice on the best course of treatment. It may involve combining the sclerotherapy with targeted laser treatments.
What are the possible side effects?
Rare side effects include slight bruising and swelling.

I often covered up my face with makeup as a result of having acne and the scars it left. My skin is so much better after having treatment and using the right skin care which admittedly I had neglected for many years.
The laser treatments I have had, as well as the skin treatments, has made such a difference that everyone notices. I initially was sceptical as I did not see a major difference straight away, but over that time and the plan created for me, I can now see the outcomes and I love it.
I got so used to having a red face, that when I finally got treatment I wish I had asked about treatment options before. It has made such a profound difference, and I love that I don't have to try to hide it anymore with makeup.
My aim was not to look like I was over done. I absolutely love the subtle and great differences that were made by Dr Gan, without creating a look that was obvious that I had cosmetic injections.
