Thread veins are not an usually caused by any underlying medical conditions, though they can be unsightly. Normally thread veins are found on the legs, although other parts of the body may become affected by them – such as breasts, arms and face.
Thread veins develop as people increase in age and their skin and blood vessels gain more elasticity, occasionally they can be caused by hormonal changes associated with the menopause and by pregnancy. Sun exposure, being overweight, wind exposure or extremes in temperature, medications and courses of radiotherapy can all cause thread veins.. They can also be hereditary. Thread veins are more common in women than men.
Many people who have thread veins suffer no serious health problems. If thread veins become problematic they can be treated in a variety of ways; these include undergoing a phlebectomy, endothermal ablation, compressive stockings and a sclerotherapy.

Thread vein procedures are normally undertaken in a private clinic.

Laser treatment works by firing a laser at the veins affected – which then causes the veins to shut down and disintegrate, treatment time is usually between 5 and 20 minutes and a few sessions are required to ensure a successful removal.
