Also known as spider veins, thread veins are a mild form of varicose veins that usually appear on the face or legs. They are caused when small clusters of blood vessels become enlarged below the skin, forming a web-like pattern that’s visible on the outside. Although usually harmless, you may find they cause discomfort, especially if the issue affects the legs. In these cases, standing for any prolonged period of time may become painful. From a cosmetic point of view, however, they can also make a person self-conscious.
Procedures for removing thread veins are safe and effective, and will help you to restore any confidence you may have lost as a result of this condition, as well as alleviating any discomfort. Our expert doctor will discuss the best way forward for you during your comprehensive, no-obligation consultation.
