Spider Veins (Blue Veins)

Spider veins are also known as thread veins or surface thread veins (telangiectasia veins).

Spider Vein Treatments at The Skin Nurse Clinic

Spider veins are not varicose veins which are swollen and enlarged veins. They appear as small clusters of blue or red veins on the skin’s surface. These mostly strike on the face, body & legs & are very common, especially in ladies.

Spider veins and threads veins on legs are treated by a simple, effective procedure: sclerotherapy. A sclerosing agent, which is a medical solution, is injected directly into these broken veins using a very fine needle. The liquid irritates the lining of the thread vein, provoking the walls of the vein to attach together. Blood stops flowing through the leg veins, and they collapse. Then, over a period of 2-4 weeks, the residue is absorbed by the body’s natural defence mechanism.

Over the course of sclerotherapy treatments, unwanted leg veins will improve significantly.

Spider veins on the face are best treated with by IPL Photo Rejuvenation (Intense pulsed light) which directs an intense beam of light at the broken capillaries. This causes the blood inside to dry and harden. The treated blood vessels are then absorbed naturally by the body. For stubborn veins, especially around the nose diathermy is a very effective treatment to improve this area. A combination of IPL and diathermy can be used on the same day.
