Thread veins, or spider veins, are very small veins which can be seen on the skin as thin bluish-red lines, and often appear on the face and legs. Whilst thread veins do not cause any symptoms or pain, their visibility can cause distress and insecurity in those affected. Our cutting-edge dual yellow laser technology is able to provide a highly effective treatment that yields quick and permanent results.

Thread veins occur naturally but their appearance can be exacerbated by several common factors including age, as the skin becomes thinner and loses collagen. Other causes include overexposure to the sun, pregnancy, and rosacea (skin redness). Lifestyle activities such as drinking too much alcohol, smoking, standing upright for prolonged periods of time and overuse of steroid creams can also encourage the development of thread veins.

With our cutting-edge dual yellow laser technology, we offer the best thread vein removal treatment by producing two wavelengths of light (as opposed to the one found in traditional techniques) allowing simultaneous targeting of haemoglobin pigment in the red blood cells of the thread veins.

Whatever your personal requirements, at the Cadogan Clinic, we provide leading experts and techniques in our state-of-the-art, purpose-built, central London facility.

FAQs

The treatment is not painful but many patients describe the feeling similar to that of flicking a rubber band against the skin therefore a topical anaesthetic cream can be used beforehand if required.

We use a variant of the general anaesthesia technique called TIVA (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) that is delivered by our team of top anaesthetists. Intravenous delivery enables our anaesthetist team to monitor anaesthetic depth more closely via specialized computers to maintain an optimal level of anaesthesia. This means you will wake up feeling much better than with traditional alternatives and ready to go home shortly after.
