Thread Veins

Thread Vein Treatment

The causes of thread veins can vary, but they are most commonly a result of family history, smoking or sun exposure.

For the red spider veins on the face and particularly the nose we use a cautery laser to remove the redness.

For broken veins on the legs, our doctors generally use injectable treatments called sclerotherapy to remove the blueish red marks on the skin.

Prices for facial thread vein treatments start at £300

Costs for leg veins injections start at £300 and laser treatment for facial veins from £350. Please contact us for information about treatment for varicose veins, which usually appear on the legs and appear lumpy and blue in colour.

All thread vein and spider vein removal procedures are done by doctors in a safe medical setting.

Consultation and Treatment

Private Doctor Consultation

Your consultation with a doctor will be completely private and without obligation. It will review your thread veins or spider veins in detail. The doctor will want to understand the cause and nature of your veins before recommending treatment. This includes how long you have had the veins, the possible cause, the spread of them and more.

Leg thread veins

  • that is an unsightly blue-reddy colour
  • often found on the back of the knee, thighs and lower legs
  • treated by an injection called sclerotherapy that seals off the veins
  • can take a few weeks before the results are seen as the vessels need to dissolve
  • this treatment is best done in the autumn, winter and spring as tight stockings are generally needed to be worn for a week afterwards

Your thread vein removal questions answered

Who would benefit from thread vein removal treatments?

Close Icon

Anyone with unsightly or embarrassing veins or spider veins on their legs or face.

Which is the best treatment – laser or sclerotherapy?

Close Icon

Laser is used mainly for thin, small lines on the face and occasionally on the legs. Sclerotherapy is better for larger bluey-red-purple thread veins on the legs.

What should I expect after treatment?

Close Icon

Patients often experience some redness afterwards from a few days to 1-2 weeks according to how many veins are needed to be treated and those with fairer skin types typically take a bit longer to recover. Lots of moisturising is advised afterwards and application of sunblock.

What results would I see?

Close Icon

The thread veins would be removed and blemish-free skin revealed, giving you the confidence to wear what you want.

Occasionally a few treatment sessions are required to get optimal results normally about a month apart.

The results can last for up to a few years before the natural skin effects mean that sometimes they recur or new veins appear due to the skins natural tendency to form these veins.

How much is treatment?

Close Icon

Treatment prices start at £300, but this would be confirmed at your consultation with the doctor. It is important to note that sometimes more than one session is required to get long-lasting results and sometimes a maintenance session is required.

Do the thread vein treatments hurt?

Close Icon

No. Only, a mild scratch-like discomfort that is over in seconds (sclerotherapy) or a quick sting (laser).

Do I have to wear stockings?

Close Icon

To ensure long-lasting results it is important to note that clients who have leg sclerotherapy treatment should wear compression class 2 stockings for a minimum of 48-hour post-treatment but can be worn for up to 1-month post-treatment. These are soon to be available to purchase at our Putney clinic or online but can also be purchased at chemists.

Can I return to work and normal activities?

Close Icon

In most cases ‘yes’.

Are thread vein removal treatments available on the NHS?

Close Icon

No it is classed as a cosmetic treatment and therefore not covered on the NHS.

Are there any side-effects from the thread vein treatment?

Close Icon

Occasionally you get some bruising and redness which settles in a week or so. Rarely some light brown marks can be left where the vein once was, but this normally settles.
