Thread Vein Removal Treatment in London

Thread veins may not pose a severe health threat, but they can make many individuals feel less than comfortable about their appearance. Also called spider veins, thread veins are small, dilated blood vessels that form on the face, legs, and other areas of the body. Ageing, sun exposure, hormonal changes, and obesity often cause them. At Almás Dentistry & Aesthetics, we provide non-invasive thread vein removal treatment at our London, Mayfair aesthetic clinic. Renew your confidence and say goodbye to unwanted spider veins with little to no downtime required. Reach out today to book a consultation and discover how thread vein removal in our clinic can yield safe, satisfying results!

Turn Back the Clock With Spider Vein Removal Today

Spider vein removal treatment at our London clinic involves VascuLyse® technology. This state-of-the-art, non-invasive treatment utilises high-frequency currents to target and coagulate blood vessels, causing them to collapse and eventually fade from view. Thread vein removal treatments include radiofrequency ablation, sclerotherapy, laser treatment, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy, and microsclerotherapy. Our clinic offers radiofrequency-based treatment because it effectively removes leg thread veins and other skin irregularities.

What Can VascuLyse® Thread Vein Removal Treatment Achieve?

VascuLyse® is suitable for treating small, superficial thread veins, broken capillaries, and other vascular lesions for smoother, clearer skin with fewer imperfections. It is commonly used on the face, especially around the nose and cheeks. VascuLyse® applies a fine-tipped probe to the skin’s surface over the targeted thread veins. Delivering controlled high-frequency heat energy to the affected veins causes them to thicken, coagulate, and seal. Over time, the treated veins are naturally absorbed by the body, leaving little to no trace on the skin’s surface.

What Should You Expect Post-Treatment?

During the thread vein removal procedure, our practitioner will apply the probe to the skin’s surface, precisely targeting the unwanted thread veins. Patients may feel a slight tingling or warm sensation as the energy is delivered. Thread vein removal treatment is usually well-tolerated and generally doesn’t require anaesthesia. After treatment, some redness and minor swelling may occur in the treated area. This usually subsides within a few hours to a day. We may suggest avoiding sun exposure, hot baths, saunas, and strenuous exercise following VascuLyse® treatment.

Over the following days, the treated thread veins will fade, with continued improvement over several weeks as the body eliminates the coagulated blood vessels. With no downtime required, patients can resume daily activities immediately after a VascuLyse® session. The number of sessions needed will vary by individual, but noticeable improvement is typically seen after a few treatments.

Thread veins (or spider veins) are small, dilated blood vessels that appear as fine red or purple lines just beneath the skin’s surface. They are caused by weakened venous walls and valves within the veins that cause blood to pool and expand the vessel. Thread veins are most common on the legs and face, and their appearance can be influenced by heredity, hormones, pregnancy, obesity, and sun damage. Thread veins are not typically harmful to your health but are more of a cosmetic concern.

Thread vein removal can be performed on various body parts with noticeable veins, including the legs, calves, ankles, thighs, nose, cheeks, arms, chest, and abdomen. Consult our team before undergoing treatment to see if VascuLyse® thread vein removal treatment is right for you.

VascuLyse® thread vein removal treatment is designed with patient comfort in mind. It is generally well-tolerated by most of our patients, thanks to the precise technology and no need for incisions. Most experience a slight tingling or warm sensation as the radiofrequency energy is applied to the targeted veins, but the procedure is mostly painless with few side effects. Talk to our team today about any comfort concerns. We would also be happy to go over treatment costs at our thread vein clinic. Thread vein removal costs can vary depending on the size of the area being treated and the required number of sessions. Because it is often considered an elective cosmetic procedure, it is not usually covered by the NHS or private health insurance.

While thread vein removal treatments can significantly reduce thread vein visibility with long-lasting results, they are not always permanent. Successfully treated veins do not typically come back. However, new thread veins can develop over time due to the same factors causing the original veins, such as genetics, ageing, and lifestyle. Maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding prolonged sitting or standing, and using sunscreen can help minimise your risk of developing new thread veins. You may also benefit from a follow-up consultation with a vascular specialist.
