If you have thread veins, it’s important to have your legs and feet examined properly and to have an ultrasound scan before treatment. This is because thread veins are often associated with hidden varicose veins. Finding and treating varicose veins makes treating thread veins much more effective.
Premier Veins offers award-winning varicose and thread vein removal in Birmingham, Coventry, Droitwich, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield and Canada Waters (London). We create your treatment plan in consultation with you, based on a full discussion of your medical history, a clinical examination and non-invasive investigations if appropriate.
What causes thread veins?
Thread veins in the legs and feet occur when the one-way valves in the veins stop working effectively. Blood usually travels up through these valves toward the heart, but in damaged or weakened veins, blood travels backwards and pools.
What treatments do you offer?
Our Consultants offer gold-standard treatments for thread veins and varicose veins. We use minimally invasive procedures including microsclerotherapy and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy. You’ll probably need a course of treatments to achieve the best results.
