Thread vein removal

  • Thread veins are very fine veins that are often visible on the cheeks, nose and legs. Thread veins are very common and can be red, blue or purple in colour.

    Laser treatment

    This is an effective treatment for veins between 1-3mm in size and can be used on the body, legs and face. Depending on the size of the problem veins, patients typically need a course of between three and five treatments. If, however, your veins are not suitable for this type of treatment we can advise you about the latest minimally invasive techniques for treating larger (varicose) veins.
