Thread Vein Treatment

We are happy to offer treatment for thread vein issues however extensive or minor – from huge matted areas covering large parts of the legs to just a few scattered veins.

Thread veins do not need to be surgically removed. We can treat them by destroying the lining of the tiny veins using a very safe, minimal-risk procedure called microsclerotherapy. In the past, laser therapy and other techniques were tried but, in the legs, have proved far inferior to microsclerotherapy which is now the ‘gold standard’ treatment.


Microsclerotherapy involves injecting a chemical agent (sclerosant) using a very fine needle in small, dilute quantities under very low pressure. The procedure takes around 30 minutes and is virtually painless (you may feel tiny little stings as the hair-like needle enters the vein).

We treat all of the thread veins in all areas of both legs in each treatment session; most people require between 2 and 5 sessions, spread 6 weeks apart, depending on the extent of the thread veins.
