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 been to cosmedics UK for first time for removing skin tag. Dr, Vardy was very helpful. She explained every detail for removing the tag. Gave good advise and was very comfortable to talk to. She listened everything I talked with her. I was happy to see her and had my treatment. Thank you.
