What are Thread Veins?
Thread veins, also known as spider veins, are tiny red or blue vessels that sit close to the skin's surface. Thread veins can appear as clusters or spread across the legs and body. Typically they are painless but can cause itching or even a burning sensation.
Thread veins are treated in a simple way using the MicroSclerotherapy method, which is a walk-in-walk-out procedure that takes less than one hour.
Thread veins are not the same as Varicose veins, which are swollen, lumpy and twisted blue or purple veins. Find our more here.
This is the most cost-effective and least invasive treatment for smaller thread/spider veins. A fine needle and special light is used to inject the veins with a chemical known as liquid sclerosant. Once this is complete, the leg is dressed in a compression stocking which prevents the blood from re-entering the treated veins.
It can take up to 8 weeks to see an improvement in the leg, and up to 18 months to achieve a full cosmetic result. Some patients may also require follow-on appointments.
All treatment packages include an examination, free ultrasound scan (worth £350), the procedure, compression stocks and aftercare. The initial examination fee is refunded against your treatment package should you choose to go ahead with the treatment.
