Sclerotherapy / Foam Treatment

Microsclerotherapy involves injection of the diseased vein with a tiny needle. According to size and location, veins are injected with foam or liquid that irritates the vein wall.


Microfoam injection induces a longer contact of the sclerosing agent with the vein wall, allowing the use of less concentrated solution.


Sclerotherapy remains the «gold standard» in the treatment of telangiectasias or spider veins.


In response, the veins collapse and are reabsorbed. The surface veins are no longer visible. Several sessions may be needed depending on the extent of the area to be treated. The vast majority of small, clearly visible veins can be successfully treated.


Once the vein has been injected, it can take between two and six weeks for it to completely disappear. It is possible to resume a normal life immediately after a treatment. Normal exercise, including swimming, can be resumed after 24 hours. To improve the precision of injection sclerotherapy, we use a polarized light system specially manufactured ensuring a precise identification of the diseased vessel. As all procedures undertaken at The Marbella Vein & Beauty Clinic, sclerotherapy is administered by a vascular specialist ensuring the best possible results.

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy

Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy can be used for treatment of larger and deeper veins. Injection with direct ultrasound visualization requires high-quality images of the vascular system and surrounding tissue. Dr. Dhobb is using a 3D digital ultrasound equipment to give the highest visualization of the diseased vessels that are to be treated. When compared to blind sclerotherapy of deeper vessels, ultrasound guided injection of foam sclerosant offers the advantage of a treatment under direct visualization. This is ensuring that the sclerosing agent has been delivered where it is intended. It allows monitoring of the progression of the foam in the vein, confirms success of the treatment and guides additional injection if necessary.
