Thread Veins or Spider Veins
Thread veins or spider veins are quite common on the legs. They are not a medical concern, but can spoil the appearance.
Patients who are keen to bare their legs with confidence can now choose state-of-the-art laser treatment with the Harmony XL Pro at Cosmedics’ Putney Beauty Salon.
Red veins on legs can be successfully treated with the advanced skin system’s long pulsed Nd:Yag tracking of the veins until they blanch.
Sometimes one treatment is enough, but for larger or more persistent veins, Cosmedics’ offer discounts on a course of treatment booked in advance.
This treatment is exclusively available at Cosmedics’ Putney Beauty Salon.
For more severe thread veins, injections and microcautery treatment are available with our aesthetic doctors. Our beauty therapists will be happy to refer you for a consultation if this is likely to be a better course of treatment.

Leg Thread Veins Laser Therapy
Laser treatment is ideal for the treatment of smaller thread veins on the legs.
This treatment is carried out by our specially trained beauty therapists at Cosmedics’ Putney Beauty Salon.
Treatment is quick and pain-free. Laser light works beneath the skin to shrink and destroy the tiny red blood vessels at the skin’s surface.
Why do I have thread veins?
They tend to arrive with age – over 70% of women over 70 have thread veins – and although they can have no apparent cause a tendency to thread veins seems to be an inherited trait. They can also be associated with hormonal changes and exposure to the sun, wind and cold.
Who would benefit from thread vein removal treatments?
The treatment is designed to tackle prominent, visible veins that can appear on the legs. These may be bluish, red or purple in colour.
Will it last?
Results generally last at least a few years and sometimes forever. However, in some cases, they can recur or new veins appear due to the skin’s natural tendency to form these veins. At this point, further treatment can be arranged if necessary to tackle any new veins.
Can I return to work and normal activities?
In most cases ‘yes’.
Are there any side-effects from the thread vein treatment?
Bruising can occur and fading takes place over weeks or months. Sometimes patches of pigment remain after treatment. However, these are generally far less noticeable than the veins.
