We have over 25 years experience at our Harley Street clinic treating superficial veins, so you can feel assured, you are in safe hands.
What Are Thread Veins?
Highly visible and red or purple in appearance, thread veins, as well as spider veins, are medically known as telangiectasia. These occur when veins become weak or damaged, leading to a backup of blood as it can no longer be effectively pumped around. Although they commonly occur as a result of varicose veins, the two conditions are different from each other. Thread veins are not painful, however they cause many people to deal with self confidence issues, as a result of their appearance.
Causes of Thread Veins:
- Genetic predisposition
- Temperature changes
- Hormonal changes
- Prolonged sitting
- Prolonged standing
We often find smoking and alcohol are related to the appearance of both thread and spider veins. Sun exposure is also considered a risk factor.
Thread Vein Treatment
Although thread veins alone are not a health concern, they do present a cosmetic issue that most people would rather have removed. Covering them up is an easy solution in winter but during the warmer months, for many people they can be a cause of anxiety and low self-esteem.
Using the cutting-edge technology, we are able to remove thread veins and spider veins safely and quickly. Our non-invasive procedures offer permanent results and can be used on the face as well as the body.
