Thread veins, or spider veins, are extremely common in both men and women and can make some people feel very self-conscious. Thread veins are damaged vessels and broken capillaries lying just below the skin. As you age, your skin loses collagen and becomes thinner, so when veins expand, they become visible through your skin. They are often caused by long-term sun exposure, genetic factors, pregnancy, rosacea, alcohol, smoking and standing for long periods.
We offer three different treatments for thread vein removal that are suitable for treating different areas – facial thread veins and specific types of veins. Our team guides thousands of people each year through their cosmetic treatment journey. Get in touch, and start your journey to becoming the best you.
Thread vein removal techniques can successfully reduce their appearance on the face and body.
We understand that spider veins can affect the way you look and feel, and so our thread vein treatments can dramatically reduce visibility and so enable you to regain your confidence.
As with all medical aesthetic treatments, it’s important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring. Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through any risks and possible complications of treatment.
Thread vein removal treatment is a low-risk procedure, but depending on the option chosen, side effects may include bruising, burning, infection and a change in pigmentation.
Although thread veins are usually harmless, you may feel that removing them and having an even skin tone may make you feel happier and more confident about your appearance.
Your spider veins might be causing you discomfort while you’re trying to sleep, or you may have noticed them increasing in size. They may prevent you from wearing particular clothes, because you feel self-conscious about them being on show. Your medical aesthetics practitioner can guide you through the removal procedure at your free consultation to see if it’s right for you.
As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery and medical aesthetics, we understand that each patient’s requirements are different, and so your treatment will be tailored specifically to your own needs. Because of this, we place a great deal of importance on our free, face-to-face, no- obligation consultations. Following our consultation process, your practitioner will provide a detailed pricing overview for thread vein removal. Please view our pricing and finance page to read more about the flexible credit options available via our partnerships with specialist financial providers.

We’re ready when you are
At your free consultation, your professional practitioner or nurse will ask you about the results you want to achieve. They’ll guide you through the different treatment options and create a personal treatment plan for you to ensure you achieve the best results. IPL can help in a variety of skin problems including acne, rosacea, sun-damage, fine lines and wrinkles, broken capillaries, thread veins, age spots, blemishes and birthmarks. Sclerotherapy can help veins on the body, but it is not used on the face - Veinwave would be used instead. A patch test will be carried out prior to any procedure.
You can discuss every aspect of your treatment with us, with no obligation to go ahead. Our practitioners and nurses are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. If you feel ready to go ahead, we can book your treatment in for a date and time that suits you.
On the day of your treatment, you’ll be able to go through any final questions with your practitioner or nurse. The procedure will vary according to the area treated and the technique used. IPL treatment delivers precise pulses of light that can help to reduce the appearance of thread veins. Each session lasts just 15 to 30 minutes. Sclerotherapy involves an injection into the blood vessel using a very fine needle. A number of veins can be treated in one session, although some veins may need a second session. Veinwave is a new technology that uses high frequency waves to target smaller veins and quickly reduce their appearance.
You’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be fine to go about your normal day-to-day activities. You’ll experience redness, sensitivity and mild soreness, but this will subside in the following few days.
We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the treatment itself, so we’re here to support you. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. All of our thread vein removal treatments are designed to reduce the appearance of problem veins. The results will depend on the treatment used and the condition of the veins. IPL treatment delivers improved results with each application, reducing the number of visits needed.
