Thread veins affect many people and while they are not classed as a medical concern, they are generally seen as a cosmetic issue and one that people are keen to get rid of. DIY treatments at home using natural products are a tempting prospect and the internet suggests a few methods for tackling thread veins using apple cider vinegar. The idea is that apple cider vinegar can improve circulation and blood flow.
In some remedies, users are advised to apply the solution to the skin using cotton wool or wraps or cloths.
However, dermatologists warn against this treatment for a number of reasons:
- Apple cider vinegar is a strong acid which can cause skin sensitivities and rashes
- Treatment is smelly, as the vinegar has a strong smell
- Awkward and fiddly to carry out with risk of spillages causing damage
- Most likely to be ineffective, as thread veins are damaged
Reliable and Safe Treatment for Thread Veins
For a more effective treatment, Cosmedics’ London Vein Treatment Centre offers non-invasive options. These are medically proven with high success rates.
The sophisticated Harmony XL Pro Laser treatment is available at both London Vein Treatment Centres in Harley Street and Putney. As well as destroying the thread veins, the advanced laser energy also works to stimulate healing and cell renewal in the treated area for clearer-looking skin. It is a gentle and effective treatment for facial thread veins on the face.
For larger thread veins (e.g. those on legs), microsclerotherapy injections are a popular option. This treatment is available in all of the London Vein Treatment centres.
The company also offer micro-cautery treatment, which uses a special probe to deliver a short burst of intense heat in a very precise way in order to destroy thread veins.
