Thread veins, also called spider veins, are extremely common in both men and women and could cause feeling of self-consciousness. Thread veins are broken capillaries and damaged vessels lying just below the skin. As you age, your skin becomes thinner and loses collagen, so when your veins expand, they become more visible through your skin. They are often caused by long-term sun exposure, rosacea, pregnancy, genetic factors, alcohol, smoking and standing for long periods.
We offer three different treatments for thread vein removal that are suitable for treating different areas – facial thread veins and specific types of veins. Our team guides thousands of people each year through their treatment journey. Get in touch, and start your journey to becoming the best version of you.
You can successfully reduce the appearance of thread veins on the face and body with our removal treatments.
We understand that spider veins can affect the way you look and feel, and so our thread vein treatments can dramatically reduce visibility and help you to regain your confidence.
It is important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring – just as with all types of medical aesthetic treatment.
Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through any risks and complications, although possible side effects are usually minimal. They include bruising, infection, burning, and a change in pigmentation.
Although thread veins are usually harmless, you may feel that having an even skin tone and removing them may make you feel more confident and happier about your appearance.
Your spider veins may have begun to increase in size and could be preventing you from wearing particular clothes, because you feel self-conscious about them being on show. Your medical aesthetics practitioner can guide you through the removal procedure at your free consultation to see if it is right for you.
We understand that every patient’s requirements are different, and so treatment will be tailored specifically to you. As a responsible provider of medical aesthetics, we place a great deal of importance on our free, no-obligation consultations.
Your practitioner will provide a detailed pricing overview for your treatment following your consultation process. To read more about the flexible credit options available via our partnership with specialist financial providers, please view our pricing and finance page.

Your journey step by step
Your journey with The Hospital Group begins with a consultation with our friendly medical aesthetic practitioners, this may be an Aesthetician, Nurse Practitioner or Doctor. During this conversation you can talk through why you’re interested in this treatment, how much it costs, if there are finance options available to you, whether you’re suitable for treatment, if you’ll need a one off treatment, or a full course, as well as potential treatment dates.
You can ask our medical aesthetic practitioners any questions as they are extremely knowledgeable and have undertaken extensive training. If you feel ready to proceed, we can carry out a laser patch test (where applicable) and book your first treatment for a date and time that suits you.
You can ask your medical aesthetic practitioner any final questions on the day of the treatment. All pre- and post-treatment advice will be discussed prior to the day itself, so you will know exactly what to expect during your treatment, including how long it will take, and how it will feel.
For most medical aesthetic treatments, you will be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be able to go about your normal day-to-day activities. If you experience any mild discomfort, redness or swelling, this will subside within the following days. Any specific aftercare requirements will be discussed at your consultation.
