Before treating thread veins it is necessary to make sure there are no major vein problems, and in order to do this a duplex scan (doppler-ultrasound) is usually required. If a larger vein is affected, is will beed to be addressed before and treatment for thread veins can be carried out.
The good news is that most thread vein problems are quick and easy to treat via sclerotherapy (injection). The type of treatment needed will be discussed with your Consultant on the day. In most casess, just one treatment alone is usually enough to see and feel the difference, leaving you free from the pain and discomfort, as well as any aesthetic concerns.
Our Vascular (Vein) Clinic in London is led by Mr Ian Franklin, of London's top vascular surgeons and a leading specialist in vascular and endovascular surgery.
Due to the inherent complexity of the many vascular disorders, there may be more than one way of managing a particular condition. For this reason, when planning a procedure, Mr Franklin will discuss all the treatment options in a multidisciplinary team meeting, to ensure that all perspectives are considered before recommending a course of action to a patient.
