Whether they’re leg veins, spider veins, port wine stains or others, most people find that these may limit your choice in clothing options and confidence. These are generally referred to as thread veins. Thread veins are slightly enlarged and can be seen under the skin, but they are not broken as many believe.
Before treating thread veins, it is necessary to rule out any underlying major vein problem. There is good news though, most thread veins are easy and quick to treat.
Thread veins tend to develop as we age and the skin itself becomes thinner. Periods of major hormonal changes such as pregnancy and menopause also tend to be a reason for the development of thread veins, why it’s also seen more commonly in females. Factors that cause it that can be minimised to a certain degree include sun, wind and extreme temperature exposure.
At Body Dezign House we offer patients a solution for their thread vein issues to increase confidence and reduce the appearance.
