Thread veins (or spider veins), though harmless, can be a nuisance and for those who experience them can look unattractive.
Thread veins occur when small veins become damaged and appear on the surface of the skin. Thread veins are not painful but cannot be removed using topical ointments or massaging them. They need to be expertly removed by a qualified practitioner. At Sean White Aesthetics, in Herne Hill near Dulwich, we offer sclerotherapy and radiofrequency to remove thread veins effectively and safely.
