Thread Veins

Thread Veins
Thread veins, also known as spider veins, are veins that are visible through the skin. They are particularly common on the legs and face and can vary in size, shape and colour.

While thread veins may look unsightly, they are harmless. However, as they can be embarrassing and unpleasant for the sufferer, many people choose to have them treated. Thread veins appear most commonly on the face and legs.

Research shows that thread veins can be hereditary, for example identical twins are likely to develop them in the same places. However, there are also other causes, which include injuries, cuts, exposure to sunlight, hormonal factors such as pregnancy, alcohol and smoking.

Treatment is straightforward and non-invasive and patients are able to return to their normal daily activities immediately. Several treatments will be required to achieve a complete reduction in thread veins, although results will be visible after the first treatment. Treatments will usually be 4 weeks apart. The precise number of treatments required will depend upon the severity of the thread veins. A full treatment plan will be discussed with you at your consultation.
