varicose veins

Disfiguring veins vary from varicose veins on the legs to tiny thread veins anywhere on the body. The past century has seen the medical and beauty professions attempt to find effective but safe methods of removing these. Success has varied enormously and it has become clear that each case should be assessed and treated individually. ‘One size does not fit all.’

Having worked in the field of disfiguring veins for over 20 years, Dr Retief has developed and refined the methods and treatment protocols necessary to achieve excellent results using safe methods. This has required training overseas in Europe and the USA as well as with and under the guidance of, a University of the Witwatersrand vascular surgeon who is at the forefront of research and development in vascular medicine.

Over the past 12 years, Dr Retief has established himself as a leading Sclerotherapist of disfiguring veins.

What is sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a specialised treatment for blue veins and spider veins, done by injection of a solution into the vessel. This provokes a reaction in the injected vessel, resulting in sclerosis of the vessel, which means the walls of the vessel harden and grow closed, leaving the vein invisible to the eye.

Sclerotherapy is slightly uncomfortable while the injections are being performed but it is completely safe, with excellent results.

Disfiguring veins vary from varicose veins on the legs to tiny thread veins anywhere on the body.
