Thread Veins can also be known as Spider or Broken Veins, they are caused when small blood vessels that run close to the skins surface become dilated. This dilation makes them appear as purple or red wiggly lines. Thread veins are not connected to any underlying medical conditions, they can sometimes be a sign of circulatory problems, if they are left untreated thread veins can usually get worse. They don’t usually cause any major health issues.

The condition affects more than 50% of women, it is sometimes caused by hormonal changes during the menopause. Pregnancy is another major cause of thread veins, when a woman is pregnant the amount of blood in her body increases substantially. The extra blood puts more pressure on the pregnant womans veins and valves. Men can suffer with thread veins but they are not as common.

Traditional thread vein treatments include: invasive procedures such as endothermal ablation, sclerotherapy and phlebectomy. Laser offers a non-invasive treatment method, the clinic say that unlike some traditional treatments, there is ‘no downtime’ with their procedure, “you can have a treatment and then return to work afterwards.”
