When Should You Treat Thread Veins?

Thread veins can appear on the face or body for a variety of reasons. 

At first, many patients hope that they’ll simply go away again. However, this is very unlikely to be the case.

Thread veins are veins which appear visible at the surface of the skin because they are damaged. This damage is generally irreversible, so the problem won’t just disappear without treatment.

Depending on where the thread veins are, they can sometimes be disguised.  Those high up on the thighs can be easily covered with clothing for most of the year, while those on the nose or cheeks are somewhat harder to hide.

Ultimately, in deciding when to have your veins treated, experts would advocate ‘the sooner the better’.

Advantages of Early Thread Vein Treatment

  • earlier treatment gives best results
  • smaller veins enables use of fastest treatments (e.g. laser)
  • avoids months/years of trying to hide the problem
  • stops the veins getting worse
  • eases any discomfort

London Vein Treatment Centre

Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ main London Vein Treatment Centre has the latest Harmony XL Pro laser machine, which provides a gentle and effective treatment for visible veins on the face and body. Harmony XL Pro Laser treatment targets problem capillaries, vessels or veins with a blast of laser energy. This damages the veins so that they shrink, shrivel up and eventually disappear.
