Understanding and Treating Thread Veins (Spider Veins): Causes and Solutions

Thread veins, also known as spider veins, are incredibly common in both men and women. Contrary to popular belief, they are not solely associated with old age and aging skin, as individuals in their 20s can also develop thread veins. While it’s true that hormonal changes during pregnancy and menopause can trigger or increase the appearance of thread veins, they can affect anyone at any age.

Thread veins are a natural part of your skin and are usually nothing to worry about, but we understand that some people may not like their appearance. This is why we offer thread vein removal using short wave diathermy, an effective treatment to improve the look of your skin.

Discover how our thread vein removal treatments can help you achieve smoother, clearer skin.

TREATING USING DIATHERMY

Effective Thread Vein Removal with Short Wave Diathermy

Short wave diathermy is a highly effective treatment used to reduce the visible appearance of thread veins. This procedure involves using a very fine needle to prick the skin over the thread veins and deliver a controlled electrical current to the vein. The electrical current heats the vein walls, causing them to stick together and seal off the vein from further blood flow.

Over the course of a few weeks, the treated vein disperses and is reabsorbed by the body, making it much less noticeable. Short wave diathermy is a safe and efficient method for achieving clearer, smoother skin and reducing the appearance of thread veins.

AFTERCARE

Post-Treatment Care and Results for Short Wave Diathermy

After your short wave diathermy treatment, your skin may be a little pink or puffy, but this should settle down after a few hours. The healing process then begins, and you can expect to see the full results 4 to 6 weeks after treatment.

We recommend scheduling a follow-up appointment to assess whether a second treatment is needed. Everyone’s treatment journey with thread vein removal is unique, so we tailor the process to your individual needs and provide the best recommendations for your case.

WHY DO I GET THREAD VEINS?

Thread veins, also known as spider veins, are common in individuals who spend a lot of time on their feet, such as nurses, teachers, factory workers, and hairdressers. These veins occur due to small malfunctions in the valves of your veins, which may prevent blood from flowing normally.

If these valves don’t close correctly when blood is being pumped, blood can leak back into the vein, causing it to become more visible over time. This is why thread veins are extremely common in the legs, as blood has difficulty moving against gravity and back up to the heart.
