Treating thread veins

Thread veins are extremely common but can be uncomfortable, socially embarrassing and restrict your choice of clothing.

We treat thread veins on the legs with microsclerotherapy. This can sometimes be combined with IPL for optimum results. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution which irritates the lining of blood vessels and destroys them so that they fade from view.

The number of veins injected in one session varies, and depends on the size and location of the veins. Between one to three sessions may be needed for optimum improvement.

Have a read of our blog page about this for more information.

You will need to wear compression stockings 24hours for the first 4 days, then during the day for a further 10 days.
