Effective and lasting treatment
MICROSCLEROTHERAPY IN HARLEY STREET, LONDON
Thread veins are small clusters of red or blue veins. They appear on the legs and are also known as spider or broken veins. Lots of factors contribute to their formation including ageing, hormonal changes, alcohol and smoking.
Microsclerotherapy (thread vein removal) is an evidence-based procedure for the effective treatment of leg thread veins (it can also be used on the body as long as the veins are below the heart). A solution is injected into the thread veins using a very fine needle. This causes the vein’s wall to swell and in turn, stops blood flow in the vessel. The vein then disappears.
