Thread Vein Removal Leicester

Do you want to say goodbye to unsightly thread veins? At The One Clinic, we specialise in thread vein removal in Leicester.

Our trained doctors can help treat all types of thread veins including spider veins and facial thread veins using sclerotherapy treatments. This is one of the most effective treatments that targets your thread veins by injecting a solution directly into them, which causes the veins to fade over time.

We use our expertise to develop a tailored treatment plan that will tackle your specific skin concerns. Do not wait for your thread veins to spread, start your journey to clear and healthy skin today by contacting our Leicester clinic to book an appointment.  



What are thread veins or spider veins?

Thread veins are a common cosmetic skin issue that both men and women face.

Unlike varicose veins, which are much larger and protrude from the skin, thread veins are small, dilated blood vessels that sit below the surface of the skin. They often have a web-like appearance, which is why they are also referred to as spider veins. 

Thread veins can occur anywhere on the body but mostly appear on the legs, face and chest. If you have facial thread veins, you will typically develop them on your nose or cheeks. 

While thread veins are mostly harmless, they can increase in number over time, which is why you should consider having your thread veins treated. 


How do you get thread veins?

One of the biggest reasons why thread veins appear is down to genetics. If both of your parents suffer from this, it is more likely that you will develop thread veins at some point in your life.

Other causes of thread veins include:

  •       Age or ageing
  •       injury or trauma to the skin
  •       Too much sun exposure
  •       Large amounts of alcohol consumption (specifically facial thread veins)
  •       Changes in hormones including during pregnancy
  •       Certain medications and antibiotics


Thread vein treatment in Leicester

While laser treatment can be a good solution for thread veins, one of the best treatments to shrink them is Sclerotherapy. This is because the treatment can treat a single thread vein or a cluster of thread veins. 

Sclerotherapy can also help to treat varicose veins. However, this is usually after a patient has worn compression stockings for a period of time to improve your blood circulation. 

Whether you are looking for thread veins treatment or to treat varicose veins, you should always consult with a doctor or trained healthcare professional.


How does Sclerotherapy work?

Sclerotherapy is a simple, yet effective thread vein removal treatment. It works well to reduce facial thread veins and thread veins in other areas of the body. 

This is an injectable treatment which uses a sclerosing solution, which one of our in-house doctors will inject into the thread veins. This liquid causes the targeted veins to swell and stick together. By doing this, it helps the body divert blood flow through more healthy veins. 

Over time, the solution will destroy the veins and result in them fading or being completely removed by the body. 

The treatment does not require any recovery time, so you can go back to work and your normal routine.

Most patients see an improvement in their thread veins after one treatment. However, this will depend on the size and amount of veins that need treatment. You may need a course of treatment to see optimal results. 

It is important to note that this treatment only works on treated veins and does not prevent new spider veins from appearing in a different area of the body.


Are there any side effects from Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a safe treatment when you have a qualified doctor administering the injections. This is because they know which points to inject into the spider veins without causing any harm to healthy veins.  

The side effects of treatment are minimal. You may have a small lump where the injection site is and you may experience some slight bruising or swelling in the treatment area. This is normal and should go down within 24 hours. 

Your doctor will provide you with aftercare advice so that you can get the most out of your treatment and the results.
