Thread Vein Removal

Thread Vein Removal

Remove unsightly spider veins

Do you feel self-conscious about your legs, because they’re covered in unsightly veins? Or perhaps your thread veins are causing you pain? Sclerotherapy thread vein removal treatment is a non-invasive procedure, with no downtime, that effectively gets rid of thread veins.

The procedure involves our experienced practitioner injecting a solution into each problem vein, causing them to collapse. Your blood will be re-routed into healthier veins, while the collapsed vein will be reabsorbed into the body, and over a period of a few weeks, become invisible. The skin on your legs will be free of thread veins, smooth and healthy looking.

Frequently asked questions

  • What does thread vein removal treatment involve?

    A sclerosant will be injected into the thread vein you wish to remove. This will irritate the vein lining, causing the vein to collapse. Once the vein is collapsed, it will be absorbed into the body and no longer visible.

  • What should I expect during the treatment?

    There is no need for an anaesthetic, as the ultra-thin needles we use will inject just surface layers of the skin. You won’t be in any pain. Your leg will be elevated beforehand.

  • Are there any side-effects?

    Swelling, redness, and bruising, at the injection site are common side-effects. You may also find that your veins look darker and more pronounced immediately after treatment. This will all subside quickly, leaving you with a more even skintone, where the thread veins originally were.

  • How many sessions will I need?

    A typical course of treatment might be 3 to 5 treatments over several months. You will discuss your individual treatment plan without a practitioner, when you visit us for your consultation.

  • When will I see the results of my sclerotherapy?

    You should notice some initial results a week and a half, to 2 weeks after treatment. The veins should have faded. 12 weeks after treatment, your thread veins should have gone.

  • Are there any guidelines I should follow after treatment?

    You will be given compression stockings to wear to support your recovery and be advised of anything you may need to avoid, such as sun exposure, or strenuous exercise.
