Identifying Reticular Veins

There is no doubt that sclerotherapy is the best treatment for spider veins, thread veins (telangiectasias) and blue veins on the legs. These are associated with so called “feeder veins” (medically known as reticular veins), which are 1-3 mm veins in the deeper layers of the skin that are nearly always found around clusters of thread veins.

At the VeinCare Centre we use the Veinlite system for finding and treating reticular veins. It is  a great tool for identifying “hard to see” feeder veins and assisting in injecting them with sclerosant. We have been using this system for many years now and we have found it invaluable.

In addition to identifying and eradicating vein reflux, the identification and treatment of reticular veins using the Veinlite device greatly improves the results of sclerotherapy for leg vein problems.

My colleague Emma Davies demonstrates the use of Veinlite and shows how to inject reticular veins.
