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.
Laser treatment is ideal for the treatment of smaller thread veins on the legs.
Prominent red, purple or blue veins on legs can be successfully treated with the advanced skin system’s long-pulsed Nd:Yag tracking of the veins until they blanch.
State-of-the-art laser treatment is exclusively available at Cosmedics Skin Clinics with the Harmony XL Pro:
Leg Thread Veins Laser Therapy
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.
The treatment is designed to tackle smaller thread veins. For more severe thread veins, injections and microcautery treatment are also available.
We also offer advanced treatment for varicose veins with our Vascular Surgeon.
At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, cosmetic treatment consultations with an Aesthetic Doctor are normally charged at £50*.
*Prices for treatments carried out in the same appointment as the consultation will include the £50 consultation fee (note: same-day procedures are only undertaken where the procedure is deemed appropriate to do so AND the patient understands the full extent of the costs, risks and potential side effects and is consenting to proceed on that knowledge).
Results generally last at least a few years and sometimes forever.
Usually forever. In some cases, they can recur or new veins appear due to the skin’s natural tendency to form these veins.

Your laser thread vein treatment questions answered
Are There Any Side-Effects from The Thread Vein Treatment?
Any potential side effects are generally far less noticeable than the veins. You may experience the following:
- Bruising can occur and fading takes place over weeks or months
- Sometimes patches of pigment remain after treatment
Can I Return to Work and Do Normal Activities?
Yes, most clients go straight back to normal activities. There is no need for any dressings.
You will be fully advised of any aftercare requirements at your consultation.
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.
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.
