Frequently asked questions
Can spider veins go away on their own?
Usually, spider veins disappear on their own after a few months, but several home remedies can speed up the process.
Can you get thread vein treatment on the NHS?
When it is for cosmetic reasons you usually have to pay for thread vein treatment to be done privately, unless you have leg ulcers, swelling or skin discolouration.
Will fake tan cover thread veins?
It is better not to tan your thread veins because with time they can get matted and as the thread veins break down, blood will extravasate causing brown discoloration of the skin.
