They may run in families or be associated with weight change, hormones or weather exposure.
thread vein legs

There are 2 distinct types of conditions relating to veins in the legs.

Leg Thread Veins

Small broken red or purplish veins are known as thread veins, due to the fine “thread-like” appearance.

The medical term for them is telangiectasia and while they are generally harmless, the fact that they are so visible at the surface of the skin can cause a problem for the sufferer.

Depending on the severity of the condition, these may be treated either with laser or withsclerotherapy injections. Both of these treatments work to destroy the vein so that it breaks down and is not visible at the skin’s surface.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are much thicker and more noticeable than thread veins. They can appear bluish in colour and can appear to be quite bulged or swollen in appearance.

This is a very different condition to threadveins.

Excellent service from start to finish. Dr Rhys Stevens and the nurse both made me feel at ease. Quick and painless procedure, should have had it done sooner.

I was seen by Dr Brit Vardy for my mole removal. She was very good in explaining to me everything about the treatment. I am extremely satisfied with the service I received.

I had a lot of choices for mole removal, but the customer service I received on the phone steered me to this clinic. My mole was removed on the day of my consultation by Dr Britt Vardy. She was very professional and answered all my questions and concerns. Very pleased, and looking forward to the result once it has healed!
