Thread Vein Treatment Options UK

Thread veins (also known as Spider Veins) are tiny blood vessels which run close to the surface of the skin and look like fine red, or sometimes purple, squiggly lines. The medical term for them is telangiectasia. There's no obvious cause of Thread Veins, they tend to develop as we age and our skin and blood vessels become less elastic.

Treatment Options

There are several options to treat/remove Thread Veins (also known as Red Veins or Spider Veins) on a persons body. The most common options are lasertherapy, sclerotherapy or micro-needling. Electrolysis can also used to treat Red Veins but this is far less popular in this day and age.
