What is thread vein treatment?
Thread veins are very fine veins that are often visible on the cheeks, nose and legs. They are very common, and can be red, blue or purple in colour. If you have thread veins that you are very conscious of, and would like clearer skin, there are a number of options available to treat them.
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 may also be available including high-intensity light treatment, and Veinwave™, a treatment that uses a fine heated needle. Contact your local Spire hospitals to find out which treatments are available there.
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 results.
As with any cosmetic procedure, it is important that you review your expectations thoroughly before you decide to proceed. Your specialist will explain the results you can expect, and will discuss the associated risks and alternatives to the procedure before going ahead.
