About Spider Vein Treatment

Thread veins - or spider veins - are damaged veins and broken capillaries just below the skin.

As you age your skin loses collagen and becomes thinner, so when veins expand, they become visible through your skin. Prominent thread veins can be inherited, but they are often caused by long term sun exposure, pregnancy, rosacea, alcohol, smoking and standing for long periods.

The benefits of spider vein removal

Thread veins are extremely common in many men and women. They can be unsightly and make you feel very self-conscious. They are not harmful in any way. The benefits of removal can make a real difference to your appearance and can have a positive effect on how you feel about yourself.

What it involves

We offer multiple treatment options for spider vein removal that are suitable for treating different areas. Sclerotherapy, which involves an injection of a solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot. Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy and also Veinwave. Veinwave is a minimally invasive technique which uses thermocoagulation to heat and close vessels immediately with an electrical device.

Results depend upon the treatment used and the condition of the veins.
