Microsclerotherapy Insurance

What is Microsclerotherapy?

Micro Sclerotherapy is a procedure that involves injecting thread veins or ‘spider veins’ with a saline solution, resulting in swelling of the vein wall and subsequent destruction of the vein. Micro Sclerotherapy can also be offered to relieve minor leg symptoms such as aching, itching and discomfort.

Research suggests that thread veins are experienced by almost every woman at some point in their life. It is commonly believed that hormonal changes related to pregnancy and menopause contribute to their development. Consequently, this understanding has led to a surge in the popularity of treatments aimed at addressing thread veins.

What are the possible risks of Microsclerotherapy?

– Some bruising can occur during the first few days after treatment, but they fade and disappear

Pigmentation – The treated veins usually appear more prominent after treatment. It’s important to remember that it will take time (6 to 12 months) for you to see the full cosmetic benefits.

Tenderness and/or lumps – Some lumpiness and tenderness may occur initially in the area treated and will settle over 2 weeks; this can be relieved by taking ibuprofen or paracetamol if necessary.

Why do you need insurance for Microsclerotherapy treatments?

During the treatment, thread veins initially vanish instantly as the solution is injected into the vein. However, shortly after the procedure the veins may become redder and more visible again, due to inflammation. It is common for the veins to temporarily look worse immediately after treatment, resembling localised redness akin to a nettle sting.

Typically, it takes several days or even weeks for the inflammation to subside and for the veins to ultimately disappear. However, this may lead to unwanted claims of negligence and wrongdoing. Having insurance for micro sclerotherapy treatments can help to safeguard you, your livelihood, and your business from these potential claims and financial risks.
