About thread vein treatment
Laser treatment is often used to treat thread veins on the face. the veins absorb the laser light and are destroyed.
Sclerotherapy is usually used to treat thread veins on the body and legs. The veins are injected with a chemical using a very fine needle. This chemical makes the walls of the veins stick together and gradually disperse.
Other treatments include high-intensity light treatment, and Veinwave™, a treatment that uses a fine heated needle.
These treatments can be very effective, but as it takes time for the veins to break down, it may be a few weeks before the results are fully apparent. A course of treatment may be recommended to achieve the best result.
