Anyone can have thread veins (red, spider or broken veins), and they can appear on any part of the body. They are harmless but the sufferer often feels very self-conscious of it, especially if they occur in areas where other people can see, like the legs. The treatment we offer for these tread veins is called microsclerotherapy. This consists of injecting some solution into the thread veins and result in their closure. The number of treatment sessions depends on how many areas need to be treated. This will be assessed at the consultation.
