Spider Veins

Spider Veins (Spider Naevus) & Spider Vein Removal

spider veinsSpider veins are very similar to thread veins in appearance though spider veins and thread veins are very different from each other. A thread vein is simply a vein or group of veins that have become distended whilst a spider vein is a central dilated blood vessel which has smaller capillaries or thread veins extending from it, like legs of a spider, as the name suggests.

Spider veins can be found singly or clumped in groups on the cheeks, legs and other areas. Spider veins are of no medical concern though you may find them unsightly. Spider veins have no function and serve no purpose therefore removing them does no harm. We remove spider veins purely for cosmetic reasons. Spider veins on the cheeks may be part of a condition called rosacea which can lead to a generally ruddy complexion sometimes with very obvious red and even purple vascular marks and spider veins.


Effective treatment for spider veins and thread veins

Spider veins are easily treated using advanced cosmetic procedures or ACP or sclerotherapy. SUperfical spider veins and spider veins on the face are treated with ACP. For more severe spider veins on the body or limbs we may advise sclerotherapy as a more affective treatment for your problem. Sclerotherapy is a quick and pain free way to remove unwanted unsightly veins. It involves an injection of a sterile sclerosing solution into the affected veins using a very fine, thin needle.
