Thread veins are sometimes called spider veins or broken veins. They are thin red, blue or purple broken or twisted looking veins, which usually occur on the legs or face but can also occur on other parts of the body.
For most cases of leg thread veins, laser treatment can effectively remove or vastly reduce their appearance. In more severe cases, Sclerotherapy can be used. Both Sclerotherapy and laser thread vein treatments are available here at The Chelmsford in Essex.
The treated veins should, in most cases, not reappear. However you may still develop new thread veins at a later date. You would have developed these new thread veins regardless of the treatment and overall, you will have less noticeable symptoms because the earlier veins that you’ve already treated will not be visible. If you do acquire new thread veins, you can have top up treatment sessions to remove them.
Sclerotherapy: An initial consultation with our Consultant Vascular Specialist is £150. Treatment price will vary depending on the severity of the veins to be treated. An approximate guide is £250 per leg, per session. You may need between 1 and 3 sessions depending on severity and how well you respond to the treatment.
