Thread veins are very small veins that are most commonly visible on the face, legs, nose, chest and arms. In some people they expand and show through the skin, giving a red or purplish appearance.Thread veins are extremely common and sometimes embarrassing, mostly affecting the face, body and legs. The causes of thread veins are unknown although they may be caused by changes in temperature, smoking, hormonal changes, alcohol and prolonged standing as well as being a possible inherited condition. At Clinica Fiore we offer the non surgical technique of Sclerotherapy to combat thread veins.
Sclerotherpahy is effective in removing thread veins from the body and legs - this is a relatively simple non surgical treatment which only takes 30-60mins. A very fine needle is used to inject a solution into the vein, which causes it to perish and, over a course of treatments, disappear completely. A treatment session takes approximately 30-60 minutes. The number of treatment sessions depends on how many areas need to be treated but we generally recommend on average 4 treatments.
