For the removal of Spider Veins and Broken Capillaries. Visible veins on the face can stand out for all the wrongs reasons! At DRV Skin we are experts in vein removal on all parts of the body, with our treatments including micro-sclerotherapy and targeted laser removal.
What is micro-sclerotherapy and how does it work?
Did you know that broken capillaries around the nose and chin or spider veins (telangiectasia) on the cheeks can be permanently removed?
Micro-sclerotherapy, also known as ‘direct vision sclerotherapy’ is a minimally invasive medical treatment whereby a solution is injected via micro-needles into the spider veins and broken capillaries visible on the skin. The sclerosant solution safely dissolves the visible veins.
This is an effective treatment with permanent results. At DRV Skin micro-sclerotherapy is performed by an experienced medical doctor who is specialised in vein removal. At DRV Skin we use the most quality sclerosant that is manufactured either in Germany or UK, depending on the patient profile.
Frequently Asked Questions

There is no recovery time for this treatment, you can go straight back to work or continue your daily routine.
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.
Rare side effects include slight bruising and swelling.
