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.

I have had botox and fillers done with both Dr Todman and Dr Vardy. Previously been to other clinics, but have to say Cosmedics is London's best! Nobody knows I have even had it done, my friends asked if I had been on holiday? Thank you Cosmedics I would highly recommend.

Dr Rhys Stevens removed a mole on my lip and I would just like to thank him so so much, I have dealt with my mole for years and never had the confidence to sort it out. I use to be bullied over it and my confidence was extremely low because of it. I couldn't even talk about it to anyone. So to go to a clinic and get it removed was a massive step for me. Dr Rhys Stevens made me feel very relaxed as well as the nurse assisting him and I cannot express how impressed I am with it. Even straight after I was impressed with how it looked, I expected it to look a lot different. It's now been nearly 2 weeks and I'm able to put make up on over it. I hope he is able to read this and anyone thinking about having anything similar done I highly highly recommend them. Thank you again this will change my life massively. Jenny
