Fibrovein™ - Sclerotherapy

Varicose veins not only look unpleasant, but can also cause great discomfort to the sufferer. Sclerotherapy uses a fine needle to inject a detergent based solution such as sodium tetradecyl sulphate (FibroveinTM) or polidocanol directly into the vein. This solution irritates the lining of the vein, causing collapse of the inner lining and ultimately the vein.

Fibrovein or polidocanol, when injected into the vein, provides symptomatic relief as well as improving the physical appearance of troublesome veins.
