Thread Veins/Spider Veins
Thread veins also known as spider veins because of the spidery way they look on the skin are harmless but can affect how you feel about your appearance and make you dread summer holidays, shorts and bikinis.
They are most common in women but men can suffer from them too! Contrary to popular belief these are not broken veins, but veins that are larger than they should be, that’s why you can see them.
They are most often red or blue in colour, found on your face and legs and do not make
the skin bulge like varicose veins do. Once these veins have appeared they tend not to go on their own accord, and as they are considered to be cosmetic, treatment to treat them is not available on the NHS.
What causes them?
Thread veins are extremely common and it estimated that at least 50% of the population have them. The reason the veins enlarge is due valves in the veins become weaker causing blood to backflow and stretch the vein. A number of things can make you more likely to suffer from thread veins, hereditary, meaning other members of your family suffer from them, exposure to extreme temperatures, trauma, sitting or standing for long periods, hormonal changes, pregnancy and menopause, smoking and
how can they be treated?
To remove the veins we have to stop the blood flowing through them so they shrink and whither away. This might sound a bit dangerous but these are tiny superficial veins that we don’t really need, so getting rid of them is not harmful.
We treat the veins differently depending on what part of the body they are
Facial Thread veins
These are treated by high frequency radio waves which heat the veins causing them to stick together therefore sealing them. The treatment is relatively painless, it tends to feel a bit like pulling a hair out. The area will be red and maybe a little swollen for a couple of hours, Some veins will disappear straight away while others may need more than one treatment.
Leg Thread veins
As these veins are under higher pressure and tend to be bigger they often need more than radio frequency to remove them.
