These two vein removals are very similar, differing only in the type of veins they are used to treat. Sclerotherapy is often used for varicose vein removal, whereas microsclerotherapy is preferred for spider veins. Both are similar procedures in which a solution injected into the problem veins cleanses the affected area and collapses the vein walls to seal them.
UGS is another variation of common sclerotherapy treatment that uses ultrasound for more efficient treatment of abnormal veins. It is often used to treat varicose veins, with the main difference between it and normal sclerotherapy being that the ultrasound guide enhances the accuracy of the process.
Ambulatory phlebectomy mainly targets visibly bulging veins. It often complements sclerotherapy, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and endovenous laser treatments. This vein treatment involves marking the visible dilated veins, and then anaesthetising them with a local anaesthetic. The veins are pulled with a special hook. Stitches are generally not required.
