Thread veins are small blood vessels which are visible through the skin. These are a smaller version of varicose veins and are closer to the surface of the skin. They most commonly occur on thighs, calves, and ankles and look like small wiggly lines, which is why they are often referred to as spider veins. As we age, our skin thins which can make these veins more visible and can cause people to be self-conscious about their appearance.
For cosmetic reasons people choose to have these removed.
At Pall Mall Medical we use Hyfrecator to remove thread veins. The Hyfrecator needle is inserted just under the skin and ‘burns’ the vein to remove it. You may require multiple treatments for the desired effect. This methodology used for spider veins is also used to treat unwanted warts or skin tags.
