Many of our clients are self-conscious about thread veins, an issue resolved expertly with thread vein removal (microsclerotherapy). Our advanced treatment in Harley Street & Mayfair, London, targets thread veins, helping leave skin clearer and younger.

Effective and lasting treatment


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.

Your treatment journey

Discover how we can create clearer, more youthful skin at our aesthetics clinic.



Our consultation is led by Interventional Radiologist, Dr Brennand. He’ll carry out a clinical venous assessment to make sure that there are no underlying varicose veins before talking through the best treatment method.



Dr Brennand, a specialist in venous (vein) disease, will inject a solution into the veins to stop blood flow and cause them to fade. An anaesthetic is used to ensure you feel comfortable throughout.



Dr Brennand can also provide treatment for varicose veins. In order to create your desired results, this may need to be carried out in addition to microsclerotherapy.

The Experts


Our state-of-the-art clinic is tucked discreetly away within Harley Street, Mayfair – Marylebone, London’s most renowned medical district.

Our dedicated team offer a warm welcome alongside informed, expert and completely confidential advice. We’ll help you to address your concerns or goals and create a bespoke treatment plan to outline what’s involved, including aftercare and answers to any of your questions.

Your questions answered

  • We’ll inject a concentrated salt-water solution into the veins with 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.

  • The actual procedure is relatively pain free. You may have some aching in the treated area for the first few days but it’s easily relieved by a simple analgesic or gentle walking.

  • The effects of our thread vein removal in London are usually permanent, although it’s possible for thread veins to form as they may have anyway at a later stage. It usually takes 6 to 8 weeks for optimum results and you may need more than 1 treatment.

  • You’ll usually be with us for 30 to 45 minutes and you may need several treatments.

  • You’ll need to wear a compression stocking for 3 days following the procedure and on any long haul flights. Avoid strenuous exercise, very hot baths and saunas for at least 72 hours after the treatment.

  • Microsclerotherapy is a very safe procedure. In some rare cases, there’s a reaction to the injection resulting in slight bruising and small ulcers.
