Thread Vein

Thread veins, also known as spider veins, are very small blood vessels, which appear as thin bluish red lines in the skin.

Thread veins occur primarily on the face and legs, and they do not cause any symptoms. But because they are visible, people suffering from thread veins may dislike their appearance and feel self-conscious about them.

With ageing, the skin gradually loses its collagen, becomes thinner and the appearance of thread veins worsens. Aside from ageing, there are a number of factors, which can also contribute to the problem. Among them are excessive sun exposure, overuse of steroid creams, signs of rosacea, smoking, alcohol consumption and standing for prolonged periods of time.

Before undergoing thread veins treatment, patients are encouraged to set up an appointment with one of our consultants to discuss their individual case in detail. After a thorough evaluation, our consultants will be able to suggest the most effective treatment and will address all questions or concerns.
