Your Trusted Leg Thread Veins Clinic in Plymouth

Leg thread veins can be effectively removed using a special type of laser technology. It works by destroying the damaged vein which then allows your body to dispose of it naturally through the lymph system. The procedure can take as little as 20 minutes to complete with just a couple of days recovery time. If you're sick of looking at unsightly thread veins on your legs, speak to our team of laser experts in Plymouth to find out more about this amazing treatment.

WHAT IS LEG THREAD VEIN REMOVAL?

There are two effective treatment options for Leg Thread Veins. One is laser treatment that breaks down unwanted veins using brief pulses of laser light. The light heats up the vein very quickly causing them to collapse in on themselves. The process is called photothermolysis.

We also offer Sclerotherapy, which involves the injection of a medical solution into the vein that results in microscopic damage to the cells, causing the vein to close, then disperse.

WHICH LEG THREAD VEIN TREATMENT IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

A combination of both treatments may be advised, depending on the nature of your leg thread veins. In your consultation, the best treatment for you will be discussed and agreed.

Laser Treatment is best for smaller Thread Veins, whereas Sclerotherapy is often used for larger Thread Veins and also for people with darker skin tones, for whom laser treatments are not advised.

LEG THREAD VEIN REMOVAL FAQs

Are the treatments safe?

Yes. The laser targets only the unwanted veins, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. Sclerotherapy is a proven method that has been practised since the 1930s and is a safe treatment, with very few complications, when performed by a medical practitioner.

Does Leg Thread Vein Removal treatment hurt?

Laser treatment is described as feeling like the flick of an elastic band. With Sclerotherapy you might feel the pricking sensation of the needle, but the pain is minimal.

What results will I see?

Our clients often report a visible reduction in unwanted veins by as much as 75% following one to three treatments.

How long will it last?

The results are permanent. However, if you are prone to Leg Thread Veins you may need occasional maintenance treatments if new vessels appear.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER LASER THREAD VEIN REMOVAL?

You may notice some swelling or slight bruising but this is temporary and fades to reveal your newly clear skin.

HOW WILL I FEEL DURING LASER THREAD VEIN REMOVAL TREATMENT?

You may experience some minor discomfort with laser treatment, but generally laser treatment and sclerotherapy injections are safe and painless.

HOW DOES LASER THREAD VEIN REMOVAL WORK?

Sensitive lasers are used to target and break down the unwanted red veins through a process called photothermolysis. The laser is administered in short bursts to avoid harming the skin. You can also opt to have sclerotherapy, which involves the injection of foamy saline solution, which disperses the thread veins. Your sk:n specialist will discuss these options further with you.
